We love Chili's flavorful Southwestern fare. One of the most satisfying dishes is the spicy, creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta. Order a bowl tonight, or try our easy version at home.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook penne according to package directions.

Step 2

Melt butter over medium heat. Add flour; stir for 1 minute. Add half-and-half; stir until thickened, 6 minutes. Remove from heat; add Parmesan, salt and pepper. Cover.

Step 3

Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound with a rolling pin to 1/2-inch thickness. Rub Cajun spice and cayenne, if using, evenly over chicken. Warm oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning once, until no longer pink in center, 6 to 8 minutes. Slice chicken.

Step 4

In a bowl, toss pasta with sauce. Top with chicken and tomatoes and serve.
