Pasta Recipe: This creamy Cajun chicken pasta is getting spicy-kick with this spicy recipe! Tender chicken breasts simmered with Cajun seasonings, then topped with a delicious Asiago sauce and your preferred pasta. So spicy, creamy, and full of flavor! Best to warm up this winter. Yummy, hearty, and delicious.
This delicious creamy cajun chicken pasta is easy to make. You can use either a traditional or a non-traditional base recipe. The key to this dish is the seasoning. The spices are very mild and a mixture of black pepper and onions. It is a very mild mixture that is not hot, but rather mild. The sauce used in this recipe is a must! This sauce is a tangy blend of garlic powder, onion powder, garlic, some juice from a lemon, Creole seasoning, and Monavieux’s French mustard.
This sauce tastes like chicken-itchy sweet potatoes. So, this sauce will bring back memories of childhood and will make your mouth water while you eat this creamy cajun chicken pasta.
I found two recipes for creamy cajun chicken pasta: macaroni and cheese one and a Mexican rice con Lechon. Both recipes were delicious. I decided to try the Mexican rice con Lechon recipe first. I love the taste of this Mexican rice con Lechon with a spicy Cajun-style sauce on end. Although I was expecting the spicy Cajun flavor, the taste of the Mexican rice con Lechon was not as spicy as the Cajun chicken breasts.
I was disappointed with the taste of the sauce. It was too spicy for my taste, but it was still a good meal. Next time, I will try the Mexican cream sauce. The chicken breasts should be cut into thin pieces.
In the meantime, I brought two cups of soup and a bottle of chicken salad mix from the grocery store. I tossed the soup in the Crock-Pot on low. While the soup cooked, I put the chicken breast in the crockpot along with the onion, garlic, bell pepper, salt, and pepper. I let this simmer on low for about 8 hours, adding some liquid every hour.
When the chicken was done, I tossed the vegetables in a salad bowl. I used a whole bunch of raspberries to add a nice little burst of flavor. When the dish was completely done, I mixed some sour cream in and served it with the creamy cajun chicken pasta dish. To make it a healthy dish, I substituted skim milk for the whole milk. I used skim instead of whole milk because the creamy cajun chicken pasta dish is high in fat. The chicken and pasta were both delicious.
I recommend both recipes to friends who are big fans of southern cooking. Although the first recipe calls for a pound or two of chicken, I found that the spinach version called for only a half-pound. So by using less than one pound of chicken, you can cut down on the fat and calories in this recipe and still enjoy the spicy flavor. This dish was served with some potato chips and some delicious vegetable chips.
To reduce the number of calories, I suggest reducing the amount of oil used in the recipe. I also recommend reducing the amount of salt in the recipe. If you want to increase the taste, you can always add some black pepper.
The spinach version of the creamy Cajun chicken and pasta sauce was delicious. The sauce was easy to make. You blended two cups of dry pasta with one cup of dry tomato sauce. Then you pureed four cups of tomatoes, reduced the sugar, and added a pinch of cajun seasonings. It was so delicious; I served it to my family. I encourage you to make this part of your normal dinner meals. You can toss the pasta in a pot of soup or a bowl with some vegetables. Serve it with some breadsticks and hot sauce. You will be pleasantly surprised at how much flavor the peppers added to the mix.
For healthier cooking, I suggest cooking the chicken breasts on the grill. For the first few minutes, toss the chicken with spices and pepper until they are light brown. I cook the breasts in a skillet with a little olive oil for the last few minutes of cooking time. You can add a little bit of garlic and onion if you want, and continue cooking for an extra couple of minutes. You will have sumptuous healthy chicken in no time.
