Cajun Chicken Stir Fry is a super quick meal that you can whip up in under 30 minutes.
At my local grocery store Cannata’s, they make a delicious Cajun Garlic Chicken Sausage. I use it all the time in various dishes.
I’ve been adding it to my stir fry for a few months now and it’s time for me to tell everybody about it!
Here is a picture of the sausage. It’s delicious! I use it in pasta, on poboys, the options are endless!
In a large non stick skillet over medium high heat, squeeze the sausage out of the casing and brown it in a little olive oil. I cooked mine for about 15 minutes or so until it was fully cooked. Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.
I did not drain any fat, there wasn’t that much so I just left it in the pot.
Next, cut open a bag of stir fry vegetables and throw it in the same skillet you cooked the sausage in. I also added a roughly chopped yellow onion.
Note*** I found these veggies by the bags of salad. It does not include a sauce in the bag. I have used the veggies that came with sauce but it had a strong flavor that I didn’t care for.
Saute’ the veggies over medium high heat until desired tenderness. I still like some crunch to my veggies!
Add the sausage back to the pot and add a 2-3 tbsp. of teriyaki sauce.
This is what I used. Different brands may have different salt levels so taste as you go. You do not want to over-salt this!
Taste it. Then add your salt. I find this sausage is more on the salty side so I season it last.
