Steps to make Cajun Chicken Pasta


Cook pasta


Prepare pasta according to the package instructions.


Season chicken


Generously season both sides of chicken with sprinkles from 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning and 1 teaspoon of salt.


Cook chicken


In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt ¼ cup butter and saute chicken for about 5-6 minutes until done and no longer pink in the center. Remove chicken and set aside.


Cook vegetables


Return skillet to medium-high heat and add 2 thinly sliced red and green bell peppers, 1 package of mushrooms and 2 sliced green onions. Sauté for about 9-10 minutes until liquid evaporates and vegetables are cooked.

Return cooked chicken to the skillet along with 1½ cups of half & half, ½ teaspoon lemon pepper, ¼ teaspoon dried basil, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder and ¼ teaspoon salt. Over medium-low heat, cook, stirring often for about 3-4 minutes until heated through.

This and the cheese panini waffles are really good together, I made a whole bunch of different foods from this website for my sons birthday and loved every single thing.

Add some sundried tomatos for an even better taste, the ones soaked in oil taste amazing with this.

Tia Stitts

Baked some cheesy garlic bread and had this with white wine for me and my hubby anniversary, we enjoyed it :)

Miyah Finkley

Easy to make but if you don't add a lot of spices taste watered down, or maybe I'm doing something wrong ? :(

Ailani Zenker

Anyone know where to buy cajun seasoning? It's ironically the one thing I didn't have..I live in Lithuania.

Love Italian food but wanted to try out some stuff from home too and have no regrets after eating this cajun pasta.
