Crock Pot Cajun Chicken

Most know...my family loves spicy foods so it was no surprise that this Crock Pot Cajun Chicken was a hit! I adapted it from a Betty Crocker recipe. It's definitely unique since I've never had bacon in cajun food before.  I served it over rice but it would also taste great over noodles as well. The perfect meal for a busy Tuesday!

Crock Pot Cajun Chicken
Heavily Adapted From Betty Crocker
Serves 4
Cal 225, Carbs 8.5, Fat 7.7, Fiber 1, Protein 30.5

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/3 cup crumbled bacon bits
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar jack cheese

Arrange chicken in bottom of crock pot. Sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Add remaining ingredients, (except for bacon)

Cover and cook on low 4 hours. About 15 minutes before serving stir in bacon and break chicken into pieces. Evenly sprinkle cheese over chicken and spoon over rice. Enjoy!


  1. I need to expand my repertoire of crock pot meals. This looks like a winner!
