Recipe

Prepare Chicken & Ingredients:

Heat a large pot of salted water. Wash the fresh produce. Pat dry chicken with a paper towel then cut into bite size pieces. Place chicken and Cajun spice mix in a bowl and toss to thoroughly coat. Mince sundried tomatoes. Thinly slice the spring onion. Thinly slice the garlic.

Cook Chicken:

In a large pan over medium heat, sauté chicken, stirring frequently. Add half the butter until chicken is tender and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Cook Pasta:

In the meantime, add pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook for 5 minutes. Once cooked, drain and set aside. Drizzle lightly with olive oil to prevent the pasta from sticking.

Create Creamy Sauce:

Reduce heat, add remaining butter, sliced garlic, and ½ the spring onion. Gently cook for about 1 minute. Add whipping cream, ¾ of the minced sundried tomatoes. Simmer gently for about 2 to 3 minutes until the sauce reaches a creamy consistency. Taste, then season with cracked pepper and salt.
