Keto Cajun Chicken Pasta

The restaurant Chili’s isn’t common in our area, so I haven’t been in years.

But I can still remember having Cajun Chicken Pasta there years ago in college.

While I wouldn’t exactly call this dish “iconic,” Chili’s did make cajun chicken pasta a common dish.  They took something most people had never heard of, and had certainly not eaten, a normal thing – and it was pretty good!

The creamy, spicy alfredo sauce along with the noodles and flavorful chicken were just delicious!

You can make your own Keto Cajun Chicken Pasta at home in about 30 minutes.

Noodle options:

In the image, I used a combination of roasted cauliflower and Banza noodles – because this particular day I needed some carbs, but not too many.  However, there are lots of noodle options available:

Roasted Cauliflower
Great Low Carb Noodles
Any chopped veggies – preferably roasted
Spaghetti Squash
Banza Noodles (gluten free)

How To Make Keto Cajun Chicken Pasta

Start by mixing up your seasoning.

Then, heat a thin layer of Avocado or Olive Oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  While the skillet heats up, coat your chicken tenderloins in the spice mix.

Add the chicken to the pan, sprinkle with salt and cook through, turning the tenderloins over halfway.

When the chicken is almost done, added the diced onion and peppers and let cook for a few minutes.  Remove the chicken, leaving the onions, and add in the chicken broth, tomato paste, cream cheese, a pinch of the seasoning mix and some salt. Let simmer.

In a separate pan, boil your pasta (if using).  If roasting vegetables, now is the time to make sure they’re ready when the sauce is done.

Your sauce will be thick and creamy after cooking for 7-10 minutes.  Stir in your noodle option, plate, and add the cooked chicken.  I like to sprinkle mine with a little bit of shredded parmesan.
