Cajun Chicken Pasta Experience
I tried a new recipe for dinner courtesy of one of my Pinterest pins. If you haven’t been on the pinning craze don’t worry, there are lots of ways to research healthy recipes. Here are a few sites I like for there selection and always free recipes. 🙂
Even though I am not a chef or anywhere close to being a chef, if you give me a recipe I can make it! Sorta. It never fails that I modify the recipe somewhere and I usually don’t make the same thing twice.
My recipe tonight from SkinnyTaste.com
I really liked this recipe for being a one-pot wonder if you know what I mean. 😉 Adding all the ingredients in one pot makes things a little easier for prep and cleaning. I also liked the bright colors of the peppers used but for budget reasons you could probably use green peppers as well or maybe even strips of zucchini or squash.
My kids don’t really like too much hot spice so I took it easy with the creole seasoning on the chicken. I added it at the end to my bowl for some heat, but when I tasted a bite of the kids I thought theirs tasted rather dull.
And I don’t think my sauce came out quite a thick as it could have because I substituted plain greek yogurt for the cream cheese, but overall still okay.
I didn’t have green onions so I used some flat leaf parsley I had on hand. I think I would make this again but maybe try some other herbs/spices so it won’t be as bland for the kids.
I guess I would give it 2.5 out of 5 stars. 🙂
Until my next recipe experience,
