Ingredients

  • Chicken Breast
    3
  • Frozen pre-chopped peppers
    2 cups (350 g)
  • Frozen diced onions
    1 cup (115 g)
  • Frozen chopped garlic
    1 tsp
  • Cajun spice mix
    2 tsp
  • Creme fraiche
    1 tub (300 ml)
  • Pre-grated cheese
    1 cup (60 g)
  • Salt and pepper
    1

Method

  1. Cut the chicken breasts up into chunks.

  2. In a large frying pan, heat the oil on a medium heat. Add the diced chicken breasts, pre chopped peppers, onions and garlic and cook until chicken is cooked through and the peppers have softened. This should take around 8 minutes.

  3. Add in the Cajun spice and cook for 1-2 minutes.

  4. Reduce the heat and add the crème fraiche and grated cheese. If the sauce is too thick, add a little water to loosen it.

  5. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper.

  6. Ready to Serve

    Your sauce is now ready to top your favourite pasta. A wholemeal pasta goes particularly well with this sauce.

  7. Ready for the Freezer

    Once the sauce has cooled completely, place in a reusable freezer bag and freeze.

  8. Ready to Eat

    Once defrosted, heat the sauce in a pan on a low temperature and bring it up to heat slowly until piping hot. Pour over pasta of your choice.

  1. I made Cajun chicken pasta for a family of 5 . I doubled the recipe and added 2 tins of tomatoes, cooked leftover bacon and some sliced chorizo Everyone loved it . I had 3 portions for the freezer and some left over for 1 lunch the next day which my sons were fighting over.I will definitely make this again. Thank you.
