• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

• 3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

• 1 teaspoon garlic powder

• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 2 cups bell peppers, diced

• 2 cups red onion, diced

• 1 tablespoon butter


Start by seasoning the chicken breasts with Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, and olive oil. Let it sit for 10 minutes, so the flavors can properly marinate into the chicken.

Next, heat your grill to a medium heat and butter your grill pan.

Now add the chicken, bell peppers, and red onions to the pan. Grill for about 10 minutes on each side. Be sure to check up on your veggies as they cook, stirring them every now and then, so they are all nicely blackened.

Once done, take everything off the grill and serve underneath a dollop of melted butter.
