Cajun Chicken with Spinach and Peppers – What a College Girl Eats

Servings 4


  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 large green and red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 2-3 cups fresh baby spinach, from the market already washed in a bag

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil


  1. Rinse chicken cutlets in cool water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut into medium chunks. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large non stick pan, add 1-2 tbsp oil in pan let heat up just for a few seconds. Toss chicken in. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning over and toss until chicken is done with some charred edges. Should be no pink inside and clear juices running through. Put chicken on a place an cover with foil to stay warm.
  3. Add 1 tbsp oil in same pan, toss  in peppers. Add a little more Cajun seasoning. Cook just until softened a little. Add garlic if using and toss to soften. Add spinach and mix gently, add back the chicken and toss to combine.
