CAJUN CHICKEN PASTA



CAJUN CHICKEN PASTA






Chili’s copycat recipe made at home with an amazingly creamy melt-in-your-mouth alfredo sauce. And you know it tastes 10000x better!

I honestly haven’t been to Chili’s in about 10 years, but this place really holds such good memories for me. I’ve come here with family on many occasions and I might have had my first real date here. No joke.

INGREDIENTS:

·         2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
·         2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
·         1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
·         8 ounces penne pasta
·         2 tablespoons unsalted butter
·         3 cloves garlic, minced
·         1 cup heavy cream, or more, to taste
·         1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
·         1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
·         Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
·         2 Roma tomatoes, diced
·         2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


DIRECTIONS:

1.      In a gallon size Ziploc bag, add chicken, 1 tablespoon olive oil and cajun seasoning, shaking to coat thoroughly.
2.      Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a grill pan over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 5-6 minutes on each side. Set aside and keep warm.
