Tips

  • Do not overcook your pasta. Otherwise, it will become sticky.
  • While cooking the chicken for the first time, don’t overcook it. The chicken will be cooked again in the microwave. So it will not taste good if you don’t maintain the time factor.
  • The skillet must be deep, or else, the ingredients will not be properly cooked. Use a skillet that is deep, ensuring that the pasta will be cooked perfectly.
  • You can top your cajun chicken pasta with any vegetables of your choice. Doesn’t matter if it is broccoli or mushrooms or baby corn, you can add all three!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Take a small bowl and mix all the ingredients for the cajun seasoning in it.
  2. Take the chicken breast and cut it into ½ -¾ “ cubes with a knife. Now pour all the seasoning over the chicken and massage the pieces until they are coated with the seasoning.
  3. Take a large deep skillet and heat it over medium-high heat. Add the butter and olive oil into the skillet and let the butter melt.
  4. Add in the chicken pieces and let it cook for 5-6 minutes on both sides until it gets a slight color. Chicken must not be cooked through at this point.
  5. Add the yellow onion and saute it for a couple of minutes until they get softened up.
  6. Once the onions are soft, pour in the pasta, chicken broth, and roasted tomatoes into the skillet. Mix everything well with a spatula. Cover the skillet with a lid and let it come to a boil.
  7. Once it comes to a boil, turn down the flame to medium-low and let the pasta simmer for about 10 minutes until the pasta becomes soft, creamy, and saucy.
  8. Add the cream cheese to the pasta in chunks. Stir until the chunks get dissolved in the pasta.
  9. Take the creamy pasta out on a platter and top it with the sliced green onions.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
