My entire family loves pasta dishes! I especially love one pot meals so it’s a win win situation 🙂 This Cream Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe is so simple. It’s so tasty and the perfect meal for a busy weeknight. The tomatoes combined with the half and half make it creamy and delicious. I can’t wait for you to try it! We like to eat this with garlic toast or french bread. Yum!
I like to use a cast iron pan for this recipe. You certainly don’t have to use one but I think it just makes this recipe even better. It cooks really evenly and the food tastes great. I like the Lodge brand. They hold up great and Amazon has them on sale frequently.
This recipe is also very budget friendly. It’s a great way to stretch a pound of chicken. The pasta and tomatoes bulk up the recipe if you need to feed a family! Don’t forget to use the cajun seasoning in the recipe. It makes the meal! We use Old Bay but whatever your family prefers will work.
If you like comfort food and really who doesn’t, this Cajun Pasta is going to be a huge hit with your family! Going out for Italian can add up for an entire family. Cook this meal for Italian night at home and gather around the dinner table for a wonderful family meal.
