This is one of the most popular recipes on Recipezaar.com and I can see why. This was really quick and easy to make. I cut up the chicken into chunks and sauteed it in olive oil and butter. I used half milk and half whipping cream to cut down on the calories. I also added about a tablespoon of flour to help thicken it up. This was really good and I will be making this again.

  1. This pasta was really good! My sauce wasn't nearly as thick looking as yours but by the next day it was perfect! Any tips on how to make it thicker? I didn't use half of the cream it called for. This was really good though! Definitely making this again in the future 🙂

  2. i've made something similar to this but used a can of cream of mushroom or chicken soup instead of heavy cream, if you don't have heavy cream on hand. it tastes great just add milk to get the consistency you want.

  3. I could just be completely looking right over it..but it says to add green onion, and I don't see that listed in ingredients or how much. Am I just spacing over it? (That is entirely possible..lol)

  4. This sounds superb…think I may make it with shrimp for dinner tomorrow night 😉 I also found you via pintrest!

  5. You can also make your own – I posted a homemade cajun seasoning on Monday – go to the home page to check it out.

  6. Krista, cajun seasoning is a spicy seasoning mix, and yes it does say "Cajun Seasoning" on it. Try "Tonys" or I like "Slap yo Momma" (: Btw this is a great recipe, I've made it many times

  7. Hey Krista! It will say Creole/Cajun seasoning at the grocery store. Tony Chachere is a popular brand.

    Hope you like the pasta!

  8. So excited to try this, but I have a stupid question. What exactly is cajun seasoning? Does it say "Cajun Seasoning" at the grocery? THanks!!

    PS. found you via pinterest 🙂

    1. You can also make your own from spices you might already have too, just Google Cajun spice recipes

  9. Tried the Uncle Idiot version of "Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta," using the Purdue Short Cuts roasted chicken. Took about ten minutes to cook and boy, was it good!

  10. I'm going to try the idiot uncle version of this tonight, which is to say, with some pre-cooked Purdue chicken. I'll let you know how it turns out …
