Cajun Chicken with Sweet Potato Fries and Steamed Broccoli

Delicious tender chicken with a kick of spicy flavors. This chicken can be used in so many different ways, throw it in a wrap/sandwich or on a salad. My kids love this as is, with a little ketchup and fries.

  • 1 pound Crescent Foods Boneless Skinless Breast (Thinly Sliced)
