  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or use spray oil
  • 1 10-12 ounce chicken breast or 2 smaller breasts
  • Cajun seasoning blend – 2 tablespoons or more to your preference
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 3 serrano peppers sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2-3 small yellow potatoes sliced
  • Splash of white wine vinegar
  • South Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce – Best to make this ahead!
  • Chopped cilantro for serving


  • Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  • Season the chicken breast liberally with Cajun seasonings and set in the pan along with the peppers and potatoes. Sear them all about 3 minutes, then flip the chicken and stir up the veggies. Sear another 3 minutes, until the chicken breast is nicely browned on each side.
  • Splash in the vinegar and it will steam up. Let it reduce a minute or so.
  • Spoon on about a half cup of South Carolina BBQ Sauce.
  • Set into the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the veggies are softened up. If using smaller chicken breasts, reduce the cooking time and check them after about 10 minutes or so.
  • Remove from heat and cool. Top with parsley.
  • Serve with extra BBQ sauce.


This serves 2 in our house. Just slice the chicken breast in half. Enjoy!
