My wife and I invented this dish while we were dating and today, our kids LOVE it. It's a simple dish that's easy to prepare and VERY tasty. For the Cajun Seasoning, we use Chef Paul Prudhomme's Poultry Magic® but your favorite cajun seasoning can be substituted.

I was looking for a quick meal to use up some leftover cooked chicken, and this worked out great. I used the angel hair pasta, my leftover chicken, and canned baby peas. I liked the cajun seasoning in the pasta, and it was a combination I hadn't tried before. I think some sauted mushrooms and onions would really be great in this next time. Thanks for sharing!
