    This was one of the most amazing pastas! It was quick and easy. I added the grilled chicken to the sauce and left it simmer for a few minutes before adding the pasta (used rigatoni) back in. Also, used a combination of heavy cream and half and half. I think mushrooms and maybe artichokes would be good additions (not that it needs anything but I just can’t leave things alone 😋). The sauce was so creamy and good and the leftovers reheated well with just a bit of cream added.

    Turned out pretty good. The chicken needed a tad bit more spice. Next time I think I'll add more Cajun spice.

    When I make this I add about 2x the Cajun seasoning, mushrooms, onion and peppers. I would love to find a lower calorie substitute for the heavy cream-I do use coconut oil to cook the chicken rather than butter but even so this is too many calories for me to eat regularly.

    I love Cajun pasta so I decided to try it myself and it turned out great! A little salty but next time I’ll limit the Cajun seasoning, other than that it was quick and easy.

    It was delicious!! The cream was subtle and smooth the taste sneaks up on you and gently slips away. A quick dish that taste like it took hours to make

    This is the blandest chicken dish ever!
