Seed and finely chop the bell peppers. In a medium heavy-bottom pot, heat the oil on medium. Add the onion, celery, peppers, and Cajun seasoning. Cook 5–7 min., until onion is tender, stirring often.
Meanwhile, cut the chicken into ½-inch chunks. To pot, stir in the garlic and tomato paste. Cook 1 min. Add the stewed tomatoes, chicken, and ¼ cup water. Season with salt and pepper.
Bring mixture to a boil on high. Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is tender, 10–15 min.
