Friday Night Dinner: Cajun Chicken Alfredo

This is the perfect Friday Night Dinner! My favorite dish to make for a group, easy and delicious!

Here's What You Need:
2 - 8oz packages of the fresh fettuccine noddles (or you can make your own)
1 jar of alfredo sauce
1 can diced tomatoes (I used the fire-roasted with garlic)
3 lbs chicken breast (pounded thin)
Some type of cajun seasoning (I use Tony's)
about 1 cup of Italian Blend Shredded Cheese

Cook pasta according to directions. Drain and save about 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Season chicken with cajun seasoning, I use it as a rub and then slice chicken into about 1"-2" chunks. Add a splash of olive oil to medium sized skillet heat oil at medium heat, add in chicken and cook until lightly browned, approx 5 minutes. In a medium saucepan heat alfredo sauce on low, add in tomatoes and pasta water. Mix together and add about 1 tablespoon of the cajun seasoning. Heat on low for 5 minutes then add in chicken. Finally combine pasta, sauce mixture, and cheese in your serving bowl.

We had our pasta with a side salad and some garlic toast! It was delicious!
