1 pound boneless skinless chicken tenders cut into chunks
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
12 oz. pasta of your choice (I used Ronzoni Whole Wheat Egg Noodles)
2/3 cup skim milk
8 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
1 teaspoon garlic, chopped
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
In a small sauce pan over medium heat add the cream cheese and milk. Stirring well until blended. Once blended add in your garlic. Turn heat to low and let simmer. Stirring occasionally.
Next sprinkle chicken with cajun seasoning. Add olive oil to a large skillet and over medium high heat brown the chicken for about five minutes. Add in your bell pepper and onion and continue cooking until veggies are soft. Add in the pasta and cream cheese mixture. Cover and let simmer for 10-12 minutes or until pasta is soft. Top with shredded cheddar and cook until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
