Cajun Chicken Pasta: A tasty but easy to prepare dish of chicken and herbs flavoured with Cajun spices in a cream base served with linguine pasta


2 boneless chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips
2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
120g (4 oz) linguine pasta, cooked until al dente
2 tbsp butter
1 spring onion, sliced thinly
300ml (1 1/4 cups) whipping cream
2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried basil, crumbled
1/8 tsp freshly-ground black pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
4 tbsp freshly-grated Parmesan cheese


Combine the chicken strips and Cajun seasoning in a bowl then toss to combine.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the chicken pieces and stir-fry for about 6 minutes or until just cooked through.

Reduce the heat slightly then add the spring onion, cream, tomatoes, basil, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Toss the ingredients to combine and cook for about 5 minutes, or until just heated through.

Drain the linguine pasta into a bowl, spoon over the chicken mix, scatter over the Parmesan cheese and toss to combine.

Serve immediately.
