This is one of our new favorite dishes! We wanted to try something new for dinner last weekend and came up with this grilled chicken pasta dish. One word - delicious! The chicken was so juicy and packed full of flavor. It would be good on its own, but the creamy pasta really put it over the top. Chicken Legs is still raving about this dish! We both agreed this was the best thing we ate last weekend. The sauce uses heavy cream, but you can substitute evaporated milk if you are counting calories. I also made my own Cajun seasoning to cut down on the sodium in the dish. Enjoy!
In a medium bowl, stir together the olive oil, ranch dressing, Worcestershire sauce, cajun seasoning, salt, lemon juice, white vinegar, pepper, and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes. Pound chicken breast to 1/4" thickness. Place chicken in the gallon size ziplock bag, and stir to coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (the longer the better). Preheat the grill for medium-high heat. Grill chicken for 8 to 12 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, and the juices run clear. Slice and serve over pasta.
16 oz bowtie pasta
2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream (can substitute evaporated milk)
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain; set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt butter, add garlic, whipping cream, Cajun seasoning, pepper, and parmesan cheese. Whisk together on low heat for 5-6 minutes. In a large bowl, pour over cooked, drained pasta. Top with Cajun ranch chicken and sprinkle a little bit more shredded parmesan cheese on top.
