Cajun-Lemon Chicken Spaghetti

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

An easy and tasty dish that's quick to put together and cook-up. Adjust the Chachere's for personal desire for spice. Good for summer when a heavy sauce just won't do.

  1. Saute onions and garlic in butter and oil.
  2. Add chicken and seasonings and lemon juice, stir well.

This was very nice, perfect for those times when you don't want a red sauce or a heavy sauce. The flavor from the cajun and lemon pepper sesonings complemented the chicken well. I used Penzey's cajun sasoning. I also used about half a pound of spaghetti instead of a full pound.

I left out the onions, used 2 chicken breasts and 2 garlic cloves. I also used a generic cajun seasoning and ran out of spaghetti so used Pipe Rigate. It was served with a tomato/cucmber salad with a white balsamic dressing. All very yummy and took ten minutes less to make than suggested in the recipe! Delicious, will make again. Thanks for posting!
