If you know me at all then you know I love cajun seasoning on everything!! I made Skinny Taste’s Cajun Chicken Pasta a few weeks ago and have since then put my own spin on it and unfortunately it’s not so skinny anymore. But it’s not as bad as it could be so I am calling it a win!
- 8 oz linguini
- 1 lb chicken tenders
- 2 tbsp cajun seasoning
- 1 tbsp evoo
- 2 bell peppers chopped
- 2 onions chopped
- 8 oz mushrooms sliced
- 3 cloves garlic chopped
- 2 tomatoes chopped
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 tbsp flour
- 4 tbsp cream cheese
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- Boil noodles according to package and set aside in big mixing bowl.
- Heat 1 tbsp evoo over medium heat and add your chicken. Sauté until done. Set aside when done.
- In same skillet add 1 tbsp evoo, bell peppers, onion, and garlic. Sauté 3-4 minutes. *I add the garlic in at the end because if you add it too soon it may burn.
- Add mushrooms and tomatoes. Sauté 3-4 minutes or until all veggies are tender.
- Reduce heat to medium low and add in your cajun seasoning, chicken broth, and slurry of milk, cream cheese, and flour. *side note: a slurry is where you mix your milk, cream cheese, and flour in a blender or with a fork until it mixes together
- Stir up the veggies, broth, and slurry really good and add the chicken and noodles to the mix and stir really well.
- Add parmesan cheese to the top and serve!
