Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

8 oz Healthy Harvest Rotini
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil, Canola
2 slice Butterball Bacon Style Turkey
1 large Onions
16 oz Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 medium Green Bell Pepper
3 clove Garlic
4 tsp Cajun Seasoning
1.5 tsp Pepper, Black
0.062 cup Gold Medal All Purpose Flour

Recipe Directions for Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add bacon and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add chicken, bell pepper, garlic, Cajun seasoning and pepper. Cook stirring, until the onion and bell pepper are beginning to soften, about 4 minutes.

  3. Add flour and stir to coat. Add tomatoes and their juice; bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until the sauce is bubbling and thickened and the chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in sour cream.

  4. Stir the pasta into the sauce. Serve sprinkled with scallions, if desired.
