Recipe

Prepare Chicken & Ingredients:

Put a large pot of salted water on to boil. Wash the fresh produce. Pat dry chicken with 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 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.
