Still working through that whipping cream, I found this delicious recipe for creamy pasta and chicken with a little kick borrowed from cajun spices. Another one to add to the rotation this recipe was so quick and easy. The sauce cooked up while the noodles cooked lending itself to an easy weeknight meal!
2 boneless chicken breasts sliced thin and cut in half
1 lb penne pasta
2 tsp cajun seasoning
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 cup whipping cream
10 oz diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat, add chicken, season with cajun seasoning. Saute chicken until no longer pink 5-7 minutes.
2. Add onion and garlic, cook another 2-3 minutes. Add cream tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper and heat through.
3. Pour over cooked pasta, sprinkle with parmesan cheese
Seriously delicious-ness! Enjoy!
