Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe by Momma Cuisine
There are many ways to liven up yet another chicken dinner. One of my tried and true secrets to making Great Everyday Meals is to take simple (and sometimes boring) ingredients, like the chicken tenders I used in this Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta recipe and pack it with great pre-made Cajun spice seasoning.
The seasoning isle at your local market should be a place you visit often. There you will find your everyday spices like salt, pepper, dried herbs, and more. It will also be a place to find exotic spices like saffron, crystalized ginger, pink salt and many other flavors and spices to play with. But one of my most favorite things in the spice isle that I know will help me to make Great Everyday Meals are pre-made spices and rubs.
Like in many other homes during the busy weeknight, making dinner on any given night can sometimes seem impossible – much less making a great tasting dinner! What I found is that with the help of pre-made and pre-mixed spices, I can take a simple piece of chicken, fish, pork chops, or whatever other protein and make a delicious meal in minutes.
The key to buying pre-mixed spices is to make sure that the ingredients don’t contain mainly salt. The key to find out is to simply read the ingredients listed on the spice mix jar and look at the top three ingredients. If you find SALT, listen as the first ingredient, then you can bet that is the MAIN INGREDIENT in that spice mix jar.
This recipe for Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta is a flavorful meal that uses everyday ingredients that are kicked up a notch by cooking with premade Cajun seasoning.
