Kickin Cajun Chicken

This weeks recipe is one of the simplest fix it and forget it dinners I’ve ever made. A pre-cut chicken saves time for busy families! I tried seasoning the chicken and vegetables with Cajun seasoning and a chicken bouillon cube for extra flavor and the payoff was amazing! This dinner took less than one hour to cook and it is now a family favorite!
