Cajun Chicken Pasta

Life takes a turn at times. That which interested you becomes distant and that hobby which you thought would never peak into your mind becomes a favorite passtime. I am in that phase right now. I have been blogging for 4 years now and I would never want to give that up just like that. And so I am taking my time to settle my mind and start blogging again. I was pretty busy for the past few weeks with pappu's birthday celebrations. I will write a separate post on that soon. But as for now lets talk about this easy to make cajun chicken pasta.

Pasta is one thing that I make when I am pressed for time or when we need a quick fix meal. Pappu is a sucker for mac and cheese and so I make it atleast once a month. As for pasta, I try a different recipe and that is how this cajun pasta happened. It happened and it is now a favorite.

~*What U Need*~
Boneless skinless chicken thighs - 1/2 cup, cut into bite size pieces
Linguine - 6 oz
Onion - 1/2, sliced
Mushrooms - 1 cup, sliced
Red bell pepper - 1/2, sliced, I didnt have this so skipped
Garlic - 2, chopped
Cajun seasoning - 1 tbsp
Chicken stock - 1/2 cup
Heavy cream - 2 tbsp
Coriander - 1 tbsp, chopped
Butter - 1 tbsp
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Salt, pepper - to season

How I Made it:
Cook the pasta as per package instructions. Season the chicken thighs with the cajun seasoning and set aside. In a large skillet add the butter and cook the chick thighs for 4-5 mins. Remove to a plate. Add the olive oil, add the onions, mushrooms, garlic and peppers and cook for 5-6 mins. Add the chicken stock, reduce the heat to medium low and cook for about 10 minutes or until the sauce has reduced by half. Add the cream and season lightly with salt and pepper, toss in the cooked pasta and cook everything together for about a minute or until the sauce thickens. Add the coriander and remove.
Serve warm!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
