This recipe can easily be doubled and the fact that it tastes even better the next day makes it the perfect make-ahead party dish. Cajun seasoning mixtures vary in heat levels. This was made with McCormick Cajun seasoning and is pleasantly, but not overpoweringly, spicy. - Terry

  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 12 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 1 Tbsp. Cajun seasoning (more or less to taste)
  • 1 ¼ cups chopped onion
  • 1 cup diced green bell pepper or Italian frying pepper (Cubanelle)
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 4 oz. fully-cooked smoked turkey sausage, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (14 ½ oz.) diced tomatoes in juice
  • ½ cup quick-cooking brown rice

  • 8 oz. peeled shrimp (31 to 40 per lb. size)


  1. Heat 1 tsp. of the oil in a 4 ½-quart nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add chicken; sprinkle with 2 tsp. Cajun seasoning. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate.
