Loaded Potato and Cajun Chicken Skillet

I love one pot meals. I think that is one of the reasons why I like skillets so much. Easy and minimal clean up. Those are my type of dinners and this meal was beyond good! A keeper for sure!

Loaded Potato and Cajun Chicken Skillet
Adapted from Pearls, Handcuffs, and Happy Hour
Serves 6
Cal 205, Fat8.1g, Carbs 11g, Fiber 2g, Protein 21.5g

3 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
4-6 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar (I used reduced fat)

Cut potatoes into cubes and boil until soft. In a large skillet, season chicken with cajun seasoning. Cook chicken until brown on both sides and no longer pink inside. Remove from heat and cut into cubes. In the same skillet, heat olive oil and add the onions and peppers. Saute until soft. Add potatoes to the pepper/onion mix and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Add the chicken, bacon, and cheese. Cover the skillet with a lid and remove when cheese is melted.
Serve with sour cream, green onions, and hot sauce if desired. Enjoy!

  9. What is the serving size??

  10. This is actually 11 points plus. Please don't false advertise. People like me that are trying hard to stick to weight watchers would over indulge using the 49 extra week points.
