Cajun Fire Chicken

Cajun Fire Chicken

The thick and chunky tomato sauce gets its fire from the hot sauce and a little pungency from the fresh cilantro.

  • none Cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 none (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • none Hot sauce (optional)
