Now that we have all the ingredients lined up, let's dive into the cooking process.

  1. Start by seasoning the chicken breasts generously with Cajun seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Make sure they are well coated on both sides.
  2. Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook them until they are golden brown and cooked through - about 6 to 8 minutes per side. Once done, transfer them to a plate and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing into strips.
  3. In the same skillet, add a little more olive oil if needed and toss in the sliced bell pepper and onion. Sauté them until they become tender and slightly caramelized - around 5 minutes. Then add in the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  4. While the veggies are cooking, bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside
  5. Now it's time to create our creamy Cajun sauce! Pour in the heavy cream and chicken broth into the skillet with the sautéed vegetables. Stir well to combine and let it simmer for a few minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.
  6. Add the sliced chicken strips and cooked pasta into the skillet with the sauce. Give everything a good toss, ensuring that every strand of pasta is coated in that luscious Cajun goodness.
  7. Allow everything to heat through for a couple of minutes, making sure all flavors meld together beautifully.
  8. Finally, it's time to serve up this Cajun delight! Grab your plates and divide the pasta among them. Sprinkle some fresh parsley on top for that extra touch of freshness.

Voila! Your Cajun chicken pasta is now ready to be devoured 🍝🔥 This dish combines tender chicken, perfectly cooked pasta, and a creamy, spicy sauce that will leave you craving for more with each bite.
