Easy Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe
Cajun Chicken pasta alfredo is a recipe you need to try asap!
After my second baby was born, my good friend Ashley brought us Cajun Chicken Pasta for dinner. I knew it would be delicious since anything she makes is amazing.
I begged her for this easy Cajun pasta recipe because after eating it just one time, it became a favorite that we would want to add to our meal rotation.
My husband makes a mean Fettuccine Alfredo at our house. And while his famous alfredo is still one of our go-to meals , this Cajun Chicken Pasta has jumped to to top of the favorites list.
Why this Cajun Chicken Pasta is so good!
I'll be the first to admit that I don't usually love Cajun-flavored foods, but don't be scared! The flavors of Cajun seasoning, green onions, sun-dried tomatoes, and light cream make this easy pasta recipe delicious.
You can add as much Cajun seasoning as you like. So if you like it spicy, you got it! If you like it mild, the more power to you!
And feel free to omit the chicken! We rarely eat this with chicken and it's still delicious.

- In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until chicken is tender, about 5-7 minutes.
