Ingredients

Scale

For the Marination

  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless
  • 3 tablespoon blackening spice powder / Cajun spice powder

Other ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup cream

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into cubes. Rub the chicken well with 3 tablespoons of Cajun Spice powder. Let it marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan until hot on medium flame. Add in the chicken pieces and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, add in the finely chopped garlic and saute for a minute. Add in the milk and the cream.
  4. Optional – Add a couple of tablespoons of chopped sun dried tomatoes.
  5. Let the mixture boil for 5 minutes on medium flame. Add salt to taste.
  6. Add in the boiled Spaghetti and parmesan cheese. Mix well for a minute to let the sauce coat the pasta. Switch off the flame and garnish with spring onions.

Notes

I used Amul cream for this recipe as that’s what is easily available in India.
You can substitute more cream instead of milk if you want a rich sauce.
