Easy Cajun Chicken and Rice

This is so easy to make and delicious to eat! It does have a bit of a bite to it, so adjust seasonings to your liking. Super-simple one dish meal, preps in 5 minutes, cooks in 30 minutes = done!

2 cups chicken stock (preferably homemade)
1 cup long-grain rice
5-6 chicken tenders, cut into cubes
2 stalks celery, diced
1-2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp. course-ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
Parsley flakes to sprinkle over top

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a 9 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Add chicken stock, rice, diced celery, cubed chicken tenders, Cajun seasoning, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine; cover and bake in preheated oven 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.  Sprinkle parsley flakes over top and serve immediately.
