Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Pasta



Here's an easy week night meal. You can use rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken breast that you have prepped ahead of time. You may also just saute diced or sliced chicken breast in butter or olive oil.

Ingredients:

2  rotisserie chicken breast ( can also use pre cooked chicken breast at home or left over chicken breast)
1/2 cup sliced onions
3 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
1 tbsp paprika
cooked linguine noodles
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Homemade Alfredo Sauce
2 cups milk
8 oz cream cheese
5 tbsp butter
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Cook your linguine noodle according to package instructions.

Make your Alfredo sauce 
Using a non stick saucepan , melt the butter , be careful not to burn it. Whisk in cream cheese and garlic powder. Slowly add the milk, continue to whisk to dissolve any lumps. Remove from heat when the sauce thickens or you reached your desired consistency , stir in the Parmesan cheese and pepper. Set the sauce aside.

This is one of the ways that I save time in the kitchen , I either cook the meats like chicken breast , ground beef ahead of time or pre cut vegetables. Designate a prep and cook day, do this on your shopping day if possible. It takes time but worth it specially on school or busy days.


 Saute your onions with 3 tbsp of olive oil.


Mix in your red peppers and cooked chicken.


Add in your spices -- Cajun, paprika and ground black pepper,


Mix until all the spices are incorporated with the chicken. Remove from heat.
Add in your homemade Alfredo sauce.


Serve on top of your linguine noodles.


See that yummy and creamy sauce..  My girls LOVED it and my husband had a second serving.
