A note about serious food allergies
Cajun and grits just sound correct together and this meal delivers correctness by the boatload. (A boatload lazily drifting down the Mississippi, chewing on a piece of straw and looking at the sky… sorry, this meal description turned into a Mark Twain novel.) Spiced chicken and mushrooms sit on a bed of cheesy and buttery grits. Cajun + grits = deliciousness.

You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Start the Chicken and Vegetables
Pat diced chicken dry.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until browned, 3-4 minutes.
Remove from burner. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step.
While chicken cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Trim and thinly slice green onions.
Finish the Chicken and Vegetables
Return pan with chicken to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish), tomatoes, and seasoning blend to hot pan.
Stir occasionally, breaking up tomatoes, until mushrooms are softened and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes.
Add demi-glace and ¼ cup water and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until sauce is slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Make Grits and Finish Dish
Once water is boiling in small pot, stir in grits and ½ tsp. salt. Reduce heat to low and stir or whisk constantly until grits are smooth, 3-4 minutes.
Remove from burner and stir in cheese, butter, and a pinch of pepper.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping grits with chicken and vegetables, and garnishing with reserved green onions. Bon appétit!
