Easy Cajun Chicken Pasta For One Recipe

Kroger had chicken breast tenderloins on sale this week, and they really come in handy for a dish like this. I didn't have to do any cutting of raw chicken.

vegetable oil
1/4 onion, chopped
4 chicken breast tenderloins, (or one breast, cut into strips)
2 t cajun seasoning, divided (I used homemade)
1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes
1 jarred roasted red pepper, drained and chopped
splash heavy cream
splash dry white wine (I used Chardonnay)
hot cooked pasta (I used Vermicelli)
freshly grated parmesan (optional)

In a large frying pan over medium heat oil til hot. Saute onion til softened, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove onion from pan and set aside.

Add more oil to pan if desired.

Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken liberally with Cajun seasoning. Cook chicken til just golden brown on each side. Remove from pan and set aside to keep warm.

Add onions back to pan along with seasoning, tomato, red pepper and wine; simmer 5 minutes.

Add cream and bring back to a simmer.

Add chicken back to pan; heat through.

I served the chicken and sauce atop the pasta and garnished with Parmesan cheese.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d165/d272/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
