Cajun Chicken Pasta for the Win!

After my little girl Evelyn was born, my good friend Ashley brought us Cajun Chicken Pasta for dinner. I knew it would be delicious since anything she has ever made before is just so. I begged her for the recipe because after eating it just that 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’d 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 it 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!

What You Need:

This recipe calls for some pretty basic ingredients. In fact, don’t be surprised if you have most of these ingredients on hand.

  • Cajun Seasoning
  • linguine
  • cream
  • green onions
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • chicken
  • fresh parmesan cheese

What that means for you?

You can make this delicious dinner quickly!
