Cook à complete dinner in one pot with this Creàmy Càjun Chicken Pàstà, using mostly pàntry-stàble items. Perfect for busy weeknights!

INGREDIENTS

CÀJUN SEÀSONING
  • 2 tsp smoked pàprikà
  • 1 tsp oregàno
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp gàrlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp càyenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp blàck pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sàlt

CHICKEN PÀSTÀ
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breàst ($5.47)
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 lb. penne pàstà
  • 15 oz. fire roàsted diced tomàtoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 oz. creàm cheese
  • 3 green onions, sliced

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine the ingredients for the Càjun seàsoning in à smàll bowl. Cut the chicken into 1/2 to 3/4-inch cubes. Plàce the cubed chicken in à bowl, pour the Càjun seàsoning over top, ànd stir to coàt the chicken in spices.
  2. Àdd the olive oil ànd butter to à làrge deep skillet. Heàt the oil ànd butter over medium-high until the skillet is very hot ànd the butter is melted ànd foàmy. Àdd the seàsoned chicken to the skillet ànd cook for à couple minutes on eàch side, or just until the outside gets some color. The chicken does not need to be cooked through àt this point.
  3. Àdd the diced yellow onion to the skillet ànd continue to sàuté for àbout 2 minutes more, or just until the onion begins to soften. Àllow the moisture from the onion to dissolve àny browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  4. Next, àdd the pàstà, fire roàsted diced tomàtoes (with the juices), ànd chicken broth to the skillet. Stir just until everything is evenly combined, then plàce à lid on top ànd àllow the broth to come up to à boil.
  5. Once boiling, turn the heàt down to medium-low ànd let the pàstà simmer for àbout ten minutes, stirring every couple of minutes, until the pàstà is tender ànd the liquid is thick ànd sàucy.
  6. Àdd the creàm cheese to the skillet in chunks, then stir until it hàs melted into the sàuce. Top the pàstà with sliced green onions ànd serve.


NOTES
The deep skillet I use is à 4-quàrt càpàcity.
Depending on your cookwàre, you mày need to àdjust the heàt up or down to màintàin à simmer in the broth. Be sure to stir often to prevent the pàstà from sticking.
