Looking for a slimming friendly Cajun chicken pasta recipe? This one ticks all the right boxes! It’s creamy, it’s spicy, and it’s light enough to be compatible with plans such as Slimming World and Weight Watchers.
It’s also quick and easy, can be whipped up on a weeknight, and doesn’t require any unusual or difficult to find ingredients.
For the full ingredients list and detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. Make sure you check out this important information first though…
You can use any supermarket Cajun seasoning to make this recipe, though I highly recommend that you use Spicentice’s Cajun Chicken Seasoning Mix.
It’s by far the most delicious blend that I’ve ever come across, with oregano, thyme, chilli, and paprika, and it makes for a real flavour explosion!

I love cooking with chicken, and it features on my meal plans at least a couple of times each week.
Here are a few of my favourites that you might want to try…
This honey chilli chicken is a great option when it’s time for a fakeaway night, and is great served with chips, rice, or crispy ‘seaweed’ kale.
If you’ve got chicken leftover or you just fancy a light but indulgent lunch, make sure you try this Coronation chicken recipe. Serve it in a sandwich, or on top a fluffy jacket potato.
