Amazin' Cajun 4oz

Instructions

Prep Pasta: Boil water in a large pot with a generous pinch of salt and cook pasta al dente according to package instructions. Drizzle with a little olive oil to prevent for sticking. 


Season both sides of chicken breasts with Amazin' Cajun Char Crust. 


Heat olive oil in a large heavy duty pan over medium-high heat and cook chicken breasts 5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside. 


To the same pan, add the butter and shallots and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the tomato, thyme and spinach and cook 2-3 minutes or until the tomato and spinach are soft and wilted. 


Reduce the heat and add the heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Whisk until fully incorporated and creamy. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes.


Add pasta to cream sauce and slice chicken into thin slices or cubes and return to the same pan. Stir to combine and serve!
