 Ingredients List

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 tsp Cajun seasoning, divided
  • 8 oz fettuccini pasta
  • 1 ½ cup skim milk, divided
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • ½ small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

2. Cook pasta according to directions on the package, drain and set aside.

3. In a small bowl whisk together ½ cup of milk with cornstarch. Set aside.

Gradually add milk and cook 3 minutes or until thick and bubbly, stirring constantly. Add milk-cornstarch mixture to the post, stirring until thickened, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Add chicken and pasta to the sauce. Stir to combine and heat until chicken is re-warmed. Serve while warm and if desired, sprinkle with additional Cajun seasoning to garnish and season.
