There are so many good chicken pasta dishes out there but this recipe for Cajun chicken pasta is definitely one of the best! Cajun chicken pasta is Cajun seasoned chicken tossed with a cream sauce and linguini. The highlight of this recipe is the cream sauce, this well seasoned alfredo style sauce is nothing short of amazing.
