Yield: 4-6 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes

Chef’s Tips:

  • Serve with poached or fried eggs.
  • For a less spicy version, remove seeds from jalapeño.


  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb (454 g) Sargent Farms Ground Chicken
  • ½ tsp (3 g) salt
  • ½ tsp (2 g) freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb (454 g) yellow potatoes, diced into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 cup (140 g) diced red onion
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp (8g) cajun spice blend
  • ¼ cup (10 g) chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. Heat 1 tbsp (15 ml) of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan, cook while breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon until cooked to an internal temperature of 175°F (80°C). Remove from pan and keep warm.
  2. Wipe out pan and add remaining oil. Add potatoes, stirring to coat in oil. Cook potatoes, stirring often until golden and fork tender; about 15 to 17 minutes.
  3. Increase temperature to high and stir in onion and red pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken back to skillet along with jalapeño, garlic, and cajun seasoning. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and evenly heated through.
  4. Divide between plates, garnish with cilantro and serve with a lime wedge.
