Delicious Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta



This creamy cajun chicken pasta combines juicy, perfectly blackened, smoky chicken breasts with a light cream sauce topped with fresh, acidic tomatoes and sliced green onions for a lovely pop of color and flavor.

The recipe was inspired by Chili’s Cajun Chicken Pasta, and you’ll see that it’s much lighter than the restaurant version because I use milk and chicken broth instead of butter and cream.
