Chicken pasta

 

Instructions:

  1. Combine the ingredients for the Cajun seasoning in a small bowl.
  2. Cut the chicken into bitesize cubes.
  3. Place the cubed chicken in a bowl, pour the Cajun seasoning over top, and stir to coat the chicken in spices.
  4. Add the olive oil and butter to a large deep pan. Heat the oil and butter over a medium-high heat until the pan is hot and the butter is melted and foaming.
  5. Add the seasoned chicken to the pan and cook for a couple of minutes on each side to give it some colour.  The chicken does not need to be cooked through.
  6. Add the diced onion and sauté for 2 minutes more, or just until the onion begins to soften. Allow the moisture from the onion to dissolve any browned tasty bits from the bottom of the pan.
  7. Next, add the pasta, sun-dried tomatoes, and chicken stock to the pan and stir to evenly combine, then place a lid on top and allow the broth to come up to a boil.
  8. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium-low and let the pasta simmer for about ten minutes, stirring every couple of minutes until the pasta is tender and the liquid is thick and saucy.
  9. Add the cream cheese, and stir until it melts into the sauce.
  10. Top the pasta with sliced green onions and serve.
