Creamy Cajun chicken

Delicious Southern chicken dish that's terrific with pasta.



  1. Mix garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, paprika, black pepper, cayenne and salt. This creates the Cajun spice.

  3. Add butter and olive oil to heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken liberally with Cajun spice.
  4. Add half of chicken and cook 2 minutes letting chicken sit, do not stir. Turn and cook the other side 2 minutes. Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining chicken, then adding to plate.
  5. Add peppers and onion and cook until they get a little color on them, 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Add tomatoes and garlic cook 2 to 3 minutes. Remove veggies to a plate.
  7. Add chicken stock and cook until it reduces a little. Add heavy cream and stir to combine.
  8. Add chicken and veggies back to skillet stirring to combine.

I used fat free greek yogurt instead of heavy cream. More nutritional. And put it over whole wheat pasta. I really liked it but my husband didnt love it. He says I am a great cook and it wasnt my best. So since it wasnt a win for everyone i gave it a 3. Regardless of what he thinks I would make it again!

This recipe has so much flavor, I can't believe I'm dieting.

Don't use the pasta - eat it plain, or over spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.
