Cajun Chicken with Penne Pasta
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 whole chicken breast
4 tablespoons Cajun seasoning, divided
1 cup whole milk
12 ounces dry penne pasta
2 tablespoons white wine
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Cut the raw chicken into bite-size pieces and season with 3 tablespoons of the seasoning.
Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan.
After the butter has melted, grill the chicken in the saucepan until fully cooked.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta until almost done, about 12 minutes.
Add the milk, cooked pasta, Parmesan cheese and white wine into the saucepan with the butter and chicken.
Reduce heat to medium-medium low. Cook until the pasta is fully cooked and the sauce is thick enough to coat a spoon. Continue to slowly add more milk if you want to make the sauce more white.
Serve in pasta bowls and sprinkle the top with the remaining seasoning.
