Ever since my mom introduced us to the Cajun seasoning you can buy at the grocery store, my husband and I love trying new ways to enjoy it. We sprinkle it on everything we can, but of course, having three little ones, we can’t use too much of it at a time, otherwise the kids wont eat it ha-ha. This pasta was delicious. As mentioned, I had to go light on the Cajun seasoning since the kids were eating it too, but it had a yummy tomato sauce and a hint of Cajun. You could add more to really spice it up if desired! Definitely a hit with my family!
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
3/4 cup heavy cream
Pasta or Rice (to serve sauce on)
Cook pasta or rice according to directions. In a large pan, add a splash of olive oil and cook onion, celery, green onion, and garlic until soft and tender. Add a little Cajun seasoning to spice it up. Pour in tomato sauce and heavy cream, and allow to cook for a few minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. In a different pan, heat a small amount of oil and cook chicken. Season with some Cajun spice to add some more flavor. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Add chicken into tomato mixture and return to heat through. Once pasta is cooked/drained (or rice), serve with sauce on top.
