  3. Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks and season with Cajun seasoning. Cook chicken in skillet until done. Remove with slotted spoon.
  4. Slice onions and bell peppers into 1 inch strips and chop mushrooms. Sauté onions and bell peppers until the peppers are just slightly wilting. Add mushrooms and garlic cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Add chicken stock and scrape the pan. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add diced tomatoes and green chilies, thyme, and basil. Allow to cook down and combine for about 2 minutes.
