Before starting, preheat your broiler to high. Wash and dry all produce.
Heat Guide for Step 5: 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy!
Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then garlic and rice. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cook, still covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
While rice cooks, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Toss peppers, half the Cajun Seasoning and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Broil in the middle of the oven, tossing halfway through cooking, until tender-crisp, 4-6 min.
While veggies cook, pat chicken dry with paper towels, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Sprinkle with remaining Cajun seasoning. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Cook, turning strips occasionally, until golden-brown and cooked through, 6-8 min.** Transfer to a plate.
When rice is done, fluff with a fork and season with salt. Transfer to an 8x8-inch baking dish (9x13-inch for 4 ppl), then stir in roasted veggies and corn. Top with chicken, then sprinkle with cheese. Broil in the middle of the oven, until cheese melts, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on it so it doesn't burn!)
While chicken bake broils, stir together sour cream and 1/8 tsp chipotle powder in a small bowl. (NOTE: Reference Heat Guide.) Season with salt and pepper.
Divide Cajun chicken bake between plates. Dollop chipotle crema over top.
