{Cajun Chicken Pasta}

I have to give myself a pat on the back for this one 🙂 I really like the cajun chicken pasta from Chilis so I decided to try to recreate it. But this actually turned out to be a lot better. I am already wanting to make this again. My family and I were in heaven while eating it! It is so so good. Please do yourself a favor and make this!:)

4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 Tbs cajun seasoning, divided (I used McCormick)

2 Tbs olive oil

3 Tbs minced garlic

1/4 cup white cooking wine

2 cups heavy cream

1 cup half and half

3/4 cups grated parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 pound cooked Penne pasta

1 roma tomato

dried parsley for garnish

Sprinkle 1 Tbs of the cajun season to coat all of the chicken breasts and you can either grill them or cook in a frying pan on med-high heat, browning both sides and cooking until cooked through. Cut into strips

In a large sauce pan heat 2 Tbs olive oil, add the garlic and lightly caramelize. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, add the heavy cream and half and half and about 1 Tbs of the cajun seasoning (Taste test and add more if needed) Increase the heat to a boil and then reduce the heat and let the cream sauce simmer until thickened.

Boil your pasta while you are waiting for the sauce

When the sauce is to the desired consistency, stir in 3/4 cup parmesan cheese and then add the chicken and pasta to the sauce (or you could serve the chicken over top of the pasta) Garnish with tomatoes and dried parsley flakes.

  1. I know, Codee, I'm having issues with my blog! I noticed it wasn't showing that I updated it…I'm not sure how to fix it. Anyway, yes, I can't wait to get back–we will definitely have to go the farmer's market!
