The Speedy Cajun

Sometimes the crock pot is a great choice. Other times, not. I have a Crockpot Jambalaya that we really like, but this dish is fast. Hence the name of Speedy. It shares all those wonderful Cajun flavors, but goes together in just a few minutes. Too easy.

We really love the taste of polish sausages around here, but even when we buy the good ones, the carbs are higher. This dish gives the flavor of the sausage, but lets me also add in some pre-cooked chicken cubes from the freezer. That cuts the carb count down, and ups the protein. Smart move, and the hubby loves it. He told me three times tonight how he loves it. This was for our small family, but it doubles easily for bigger crowds.

Speedy Cajun Pot Dinner

1/2 head raw cauliflower
1 cup diced cabbage
1/2 green bell pepper
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced tomatoes
8 ounces of chicken cubes
1/2 pound smoked sausage
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
shredded cheese for garnish

Add about 1/2 cup water in a 3 quart pot. Place it on the stove to heat. Meanwhile, chop the caulifower and add to the pot. Next dice the cabbage and add it. Let those cook about 5 minutes, then add the remaining ingredients. When vegetables are tender, break up the cauliflower a bit, and add salt and pepper to taste. Louisiana hot sauce is optional, but yummy. Add shredded cheese to taste and let it melt in before serving. Serves 3

This dish is so easy to prepare because the meats are pre-cooked. Chicken cubes in the freezer are a staple for E.Z. Fix meals like this one.
