Ingredients

  • tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Chicken Breasts, cut in 1 inch cubes
  • Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced into 2-inch strips
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, sliced into 2-inch strips
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) of low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) of fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • ¾ cup heavy cream (divided)
  • 12 oz Penne Pasta
  • 2 tsps corn starch, mixed with 1 tsp of water
  • ¾ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp minced fresh parsleyIn a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.

Instructions

  • In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with your desired amount of Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning. Add the seasoned chicken to the pot in a single layer.
  • Cook the chicken until it browns on the bottom, approximately 3 minutes. Flip the chicken pieces and continue cooking until they are cooked through, which should take about 3 minutes more. Transfer the cooked chicken to a sheet of foil and wrap it to keep it warm.
  • In the same pot, heat the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers and onion, and sauté them for 3 minutes. Add the minced garlic and continue sautéing for an additional minute.
  • Pour the low-sodium chicken broth, fire-roasted diced tomatoes, and 1/2 cup of heavy cream into the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then add the penne pasta.
  • Cook the pasta, stirring frequently, until it is nearly tender, which should take about 12-13 minutes. Add the cornstarch and water mixture, and cook until the pasta is just tender and the sauce has thickened, approximately 1 minute longer.
  • Remove the pot from the heat. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of heavy cream, finely shredded Parmesan cheese, minced fresh parsley, and the cooked chicken to the pot. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to your taste. Serve the dish warm.
