Spicy Cajun Chicken Pasta

Content Protection by DMCA.com

It’s time to turn up the heat and kick up the flavor in your weekday meal routine! If you’re a busy parent or busy twenty-something like myself, making dinner after a long day can be a bit hectic. Looking to tackle the mid-week dinner blues? One pot meals are a sure fire way to go! In less than thirty minutes, spicy chicken and zesty peppers are sprinkled with Cajun seasoning before they’re sautéed and tossed into linguine with a light, yet creamy, sauce. Best of all, you can assemble it early and sauté everything right before dinner.
