Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

 Delicious creamy chicken pasta, that is so easy to make and the Cajun seasoning takes this dish to just another level...just can't stop with one serving!! I have been making this dish umpteen number of times in my home and each time I make it, the pot is swiped and licked clean, as it's so irresistible. Try this once and you will make it always!! A keepsake recipe! Just make the Cajun seasoning and keep it ready, so that you can make a quick dinner or lunch even when you have some unexpected guests turning up.


For the cajun seasoning

2 tbsp paprika

2 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp onion powder

2 Tsp red chili flakes

2 tsp ground black pepper

2 tsp white pepper(optional)

2 Tbsp salt 

1 Tbsp dried thyme

1 Tbsp dried oregano


Mix all the above ingredients well and store in an air tight container.(Ideally you can keep it in the refrigerator so that it will stay fresh for upto one year).



For the  Creamy Cajun chicken pasta

3 Tbsp olive oil

3-4 garlic cloves, chopped

2 chicken breasts, sliced into thin pieces

1 Tbsp cajun seasoning

2 cups heavy cream

4 cups cooked penne pasta

1 cup cheese(I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)

1/4 cup parsley chopped



  • In a heavy bottom large pot, heat the olive oil.
  • Add the chopped garlic, followed by the chicken and fry for some time, until the garlic starts turning slightly brown and the chicken turns white.
  • Sprinkle the cajun seasoning and mix well, so that the seasoning coats all the chicken pieces well.
  • Add the cream, and bring it to a boil.
  • Now add the cooked pasta and mix everything well.
  • Finally add the cheese and parsley. Stir continuously until the cheese melts and the pasta is coated well with the creamy sauce.
  • Serve hot.
