"I got this recipe from a place that claimed it as a copycat of Chilis Cajun Chicken Pasta, so I had to try it, and was pleasantly surprised that it DID taste a lot like it!"

Servings Per Recipe: 4
"It was kind of missing something. The sauce seemed very bland to me."
"really good! i browned my chicken in a deep skillet and then took the chicken out and made the sauce in that pan so it had some cajun flavor. (i actually added alittle cajun spice to the sauce too.) i also used fat free half & half and it turned out creamy and delicious!"
"This was super yummy! I don't know if I'd say it tastes just like the Chili's Cajun Chicken Pasta, but it was still delicious! Thanks for posting!"
"It was good, I didn't love it though."
"Yes, this is a delightful and fun supper for the middle of the week OR a fancy week-end meal for guests...I added red and yellow peppers, along with tiny grape tomatoes...plus, I used heavy cream, instead of the 1/2 and 1/2...absolutely delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe I will make over and over again! (Used the Recipezaar cajun seasoning recipe from Recipe #170249 (changed the 3 Tablespoons of salt to 1 scant Tablespoon of freshly ground salt)...Excellent!"
"I was sooo ready to enjoy this dish. One of my favorites from Chili's. The only thing better would have been if somebody else would have cooked it for me! Thanks for posting!"
"I just made this pasta and I'm already planning on making it again! Thank you!"
"My roommate and I made this for dinner this evening, and it was amazing... I couldn't stop eating it! We tried not to deviate from the recipe too much, but we subtracted the tomatoes and added more cheese...yum... I will absolutely be making this again!"
"This tasted like it came straight from a restaurant! So yummy. I have made it a couple of times now. Just add more cajun seasoning if you want it spicier..."
"Excellent! It was easy to put together too. I used my own Cajun mix. Will try it next time with prawns.Thanks!"
"This was a great easy recipe. I will make this on a regular basis. I used Cajun Seasoning #114562 as suggested by another member and it was a great suggestion. It made an absolutely delcious, filling and quick dinner recipe."
"This was very good I love chilis cajun chicken pasta and this is very close to it will absolutley make it again!!!"
"Both my husband and I thought this was delicious. We thought the tomatoes added at the end was a really nice touch. This will definitely be a regular in our house."
"Yum - couldn't believe my husband liked it. I added a tin of tomato & vegetable pasta sauce to make it go even further. Perhaps next time I'll leave out the cayenne pepper though."
"WONDERFUL! I remember the Chili's pasta tasting very similar. Since neither my boyfriend or myself are big fans of tomatoes I omitted them and garnished with a little green onion. Will surely make this again. Thanks for sharing!"
"YUMMY! But I did modify it a bit. I added green peppers and portabella mushrooms. I made the Cajun seasoning recipe that I got from this site and mixed one TBS of that with 2TBS of olive oil and used that to marinade the sliced chicked breasts. I then cooked the chicken breasts with the peppers and mushrooms. I scooped out the chick mixture leaving the remaining seasoned oil from the chick in the pan and made the rest of this recipe in the pan which gave the sauce a stronger cajun taste. I garnished with chopped green onion. Hope this helps! It was d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!!"
"This tasted almost identical to the Chili's old cajun pasta. It was from about ten years ago and the one on their menu now is different. I have been searching for this recipe FOREVER. I also used the cajun seasoning from this cite (the one posted by pets'r'us), but it was almost too spicy (and I love spicy) so I would decrease the cayenne just a tad. But otherwise this was decadently declicious and very close if not the same as Chili's."
"I've never had the original at Chili's so I didn't have anything to compare this to, but it was very tasty. My boyfriend said its his favorite pasta dish that I make! But - we both had leftovers the next day and it was quite as good as when it was fresh. Next time I would probably season the sauce with some of the cayenne & cajun seasoning and add in some garlic. I didn't use the tomatoes just because I don't care for them. Thanks for a quick, easy recipe!"
"I've cooked this twice now and it's pretty good. It has a great taste and the tomato adds a ton of flavor. My only problem is both times the sauce has been a little thicker than I like or remember of the actual chilis sauce. Everything else is great though! Super easy to cook for anyone!"
"We enjoyed this Chalsea! I added some red chili flakes to the sauce and when I served it I added a dash of dried basil on top. Great served with garlic bread. Very tasty recipe thankyou!!!!!!:)"
