Instructions

Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large non-stick sauté pan. Add chicken tenders, onion, pepper, and sausage and cook for 10-12 minutes or until onion is softened and chicken is browned on all sides. Add garlic to pan and cook an additional minute. Stir in fire roasted tomatoes, Cajun seasoning, chicken broth, and rice. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook for 5-7 minutes or until rice is tender.
