Cajun Chicken Pasta

I have been wanting to make Cajun Chicken Pasta far a long long time but all the recipes I could fine were a bit complicated, in the end I took a complicated recipes and simplified it! Even so it was incredibly tasty, I love anything with a Cajun flavour and this was no exception and by cutting out bits of the original recipe it was much quicker and easier to make.

Cajun Chicken Pasta (adapted from Budget Bytes)
(Serves 4)

2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
2 large chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 tbsp oil
1 green pepper, sliced 
1 red pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 can chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp cream cheese
250g pasta
Place the chicken strips into a bowl, add half the Cajun seasoning and toss the chicken to coat.
Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions.
Heat a frying pan and add the oil. Fry the chicken until lightly browned and cooked through. Set the chicken aside and add the peppers and onion to the pan, fry until they are tender and slightly wilted. Set the peppers and onions aside.
Turn down the heat under the frying pan and add the tomatoes and the other half of the Cajun seasoning. Cut the cream cheese into small pieces and add it to the pan. Stir the sauce until the cream cheese has melted into the tomatoes and created a creamy sauce.
Add the chicken, peppers and onions back to the pan with the sauce and stir to combine. Add the pasta into the sauce and stir to combine. Serve.
