Cajun Chicken Fettuccine

Cajun Chicken Fettuccine

Colorful veggies and traditional Cajun seasonings combine with rotisserie chicken to quickly create this spicy Chicken Helper® dinner.


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 box Chicken Helper™ fettuccine Alfredo
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into thin bite-size strips
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 3/4 cup tomato pasta sauce
  • 3 cups cubed deli rotisserie chicken (from 2- to 2 1/2-pound chicken)


  1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat 3 cups water to boiling.
  2. Stir in pasta (from Chicken Helper box). Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Drain; cover to keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt margarine over medium-high heat.
  4. Add mushrooms, onion and bell pepper; cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from skillet.
  5. In same skillet, mix milk, sauce mix (from Chicken Helper box), Italian seasoning, paprika and ground red pepper. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  6. Reduce heat. Cook uncovered 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Stir in tomato pasta sauce, vegetables and chicken. Cook uncovered about 3 minutes longer or until thoroughly heated.
  8. Serve over noodles.

Tip: You can use uncooked chicken breasts instead of the rotisserie chicken. After removing vegetables from skillet, melt 2 tablespoons margarine or butter in skillet; carefully add 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Cook over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until outsides turn white. Beginning with step 3, continue with recipe as written—except omit rotisserie chicken.

Kick up the heat by serving with hot pepper sauce—each person can choose their own heat level!
