A healthy Cajun, dump-in-the-slow-cooker dinner is the exactly what you need to fit a whole hearty dinner into your already pretty crazy schedule. With no pre-cooking required (seriously, just toss that chicken right in) the whole dish will come together with minimal effort on your part, but with all the incredibly tasty results! This recipe is also completely gluten-free, and dairy free. Substitute (or remove) the chicken for some beans, chickpeas or tofu, and you’ve got yourself a vegan alternative as well. This is a one-pot dinner you’ll keep in your recipe repertoire for years to come.
