One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta

One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta in a large skillet with a red and white stripped cloth in the upper left corner and placed on top of a wood cutting board.

Since one of our family favorite recipes is Cajun Chicken Pasta, I decided to simplify it into a One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta that is done in under 25 minutes.

I loved transforming this family favorite into a quick and easy comfort food recipe perfect for a quick meal on a busy weeknight or easy dinner for company.

By using the starch in the pasta as a thickener for the sauce it reduced additional calories by not having to add flour. I also used half and half over traditional heavy cream to lighten the dish.

If that wasn't good enough, this dish only requires one pot to make, keeping dishes to a minimum! 

One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta is guaranteed to be a hit! Here's how to make the recipe:

Key Lime Cookie Sorbet Sandwiches

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.

3 Key Lime Cookie Sorbet Sandwiches filled with Raspberry Sorbet and stacked 3 high with a pile of Key Lime Sugar Cookies to the left.

Key Lime Cookie Sorbet Sandwiches are a favorite summertime sweet treat on a hot summer day. It's a delicious variation of the classic Ice Cream Sandwiches.

The Chewy Key Lime Cookies are super easy to make and freeze really well making them easy to make ahead of time.

To make Sorbet Sandwiches I actually find it a little bit easier to assemble if the cookies are frozen for at least 20 minutes, since sorbet is a little bit softer than ice cream on the hottest of summer days. When the room temperature is above 75° the cookies still defrost fairly fast while helping prolong the sorbet from melting too fast.

We also like to keep a few flavors of sorbet on hand to fill the Sorbet Sandwiches with so everyone can personalize their own. I like to make standard size Chewy Key Lime Cookies so you can enjoy a few different flavors if you so choose.

Sorbet and Key Lime Cookies are delicious on there own but they are over the top amazing when you put them together!

They were the perfect sweet treat to celebrate the end of the school year in our house on a hot day!

Chicken Macaroni and Cheese Helper

Chicken Macaroni and Cheese Helper is a super easy to make dinner option sure to please even the most pickiest eaters. This recipe includes an easy gluten free option and is done in 25 minutes.

Chicken Macaroni and Cheese Helper in a stainless steel skillet with a white and turquoise checkered kitchen cloth on the left side.

I needed something quick and easy to make the other night and the kids were in the mood for macaroni and cheese.

We already had things with hamburger in it two nights in a row so I decided to change up my One Skillet Cheeseburger Helper with chicken breast and a few tweaks, let me tell you it was devoured in 2.2 seconds.

Always a sign of a good thing! 

If you have a gluten free household this dish is easily made gluten free using gluten free brown rice noodles. I've made different variations of this dish using traditional pasta and gluten free brown rice noodles and no one can tell the difference.

I love how easy and simple this is to make, some nights the less fuss the better.

It takes only a few more minutes then the boxed stuff and is 10 times tastier plus it's a one skillet dish meaning very few dishes!
