Cajun chicken pasta

20171231_124850

This is one of my favorite recipes, and one of the only things I order at Chili’s— I have not been to Chili’s in years because I figured out how to make this dish. This is easy to make and is very filling. Plus, this recipe makes a lot of pasta, so there will be leftovers for a day or two.

I always make this when I am feeling down or stressed out because of school. It is comfort food, and a damn good one.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Ingredients

  • 2 tomatoes, diced and seeded
  • 2 jars of Alfredo Sauce
  • 1 12 oz. box of fettuccine
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Cajun Seasoning
  • Salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

  1. Take the chicken breasts and pat them dry. Liberally coat the chicken breasts with Cajun seasoning.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Once the butter and oil are hot, put the chicken in the pan. Cook for 5-6 minutes, then flip the chicken and cook for another 5-6 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Fill a large pot with water. Salt the water stir, then bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, cook the pasta for 10-11 minutes. Drain pasta well, but keep about 1/4 cup of the pasta water and set it aside. Save the pot for later.
  4. While pasta is cooking, warm the jars of Alfredo sauce in a medium sized saucepan.
  5. Cut the chicken into strips. Add pasta water and pasta back into the large pot. Add Alfredo sauce and stir to combine. Stir in chicken strips and diced tomatoes.
  6. Serve immediately and top with green onion and Parmesan cheese.

This dish is good on its own, but I always like to eat it with a side of french bread.
