Instructions

  • Cook Vegetables: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add diced bell pepper and onion, cooking until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add Garlic: Add minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  • Cook Chicken: Add ground chicken to the skillet, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Cook until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add Sauce and Seasoning: Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  • Toast Buns: Toast hamburger buns in a separate skillet or toaster until golden brown.
  • Assemble Sandwiches: Spoon the Cajun chicken mixture onto the bottom halves of the buns. Add optional toppings if desired, then place the top halves of the buns on top.
  • Serve: Serve hot and enjoy!

Notes

  • Use sturdy buns like kaiser rolls to prevent sogginess.
  • Adjust the heat by varying the amount of cayenne pepper in the Cajun seasoning.
