A delicous and easy skillet dinner for the calorie concious looking for an indulgentpasta dinner!
Mix cajun seasoning. Separate; you will use half to coat chicken, the other half for the cajun sauce.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in skillet on medium heat. Generously coat chicken with cajun seasoning. Sear chicken on both sides in skillet until chicken is fully cooked, and 165 degrees internally. Remove chicken from skillet.
Add 1 tbsp olive oil to pan (no need to wipe it clean) and add minced onion and roasted red pepper. Cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, then add remaining cajun seasoning. Continue to cook until onion is translucent. Add flour, and stir until absorbed.
Add chicken broth, and half and half. Stir until thickened. Add 1/2 cup parmesan cheese if desired for cheesy consistency. Remove from heat. Add pre-cooked pasta, and stir.
Slice chicken and add on top of pasta. Sprinkly with parmesan and parsley or cilantro if desired.
