  • 2 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons dried thyme

  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 box whole wheat linguini

  1. Create your Cajun seasoning by mixing together the first ten ingredients in a bowl (you can use store bought Cajun seasoning or any other recipe you want)
  2. Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat
  3. Slice your chicken breasts in half and season each with 1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (each side should have 1/4 teaspoon of seasoning)
  4. Once your pan is hot, place your chicken breast halves in the pan and cook through
  5. Meanwhile, dice half an onion, half a green bell pepper, and three cloves of garlic
  6. Add the vegetables to the pan with the chicken and add 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning to them along with a few pinches of salt
  7. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the pan and let the veggies continue to cook until they are tender but still have a bite
  8. Once the veggies are done, add three cups of chicken broth and bring to a boil
  9. Break your linguini noodles in half so they fit in the skillet and stir around until they are all submerged in liquid
  10. Cook your noodles until they are al dente, stirring frequently to ensure even cooking
  11. You may need to add more chicken stock if your noodles get dry while they are cooking
  12. Remove from the heat and add 2 wedges of laughing cow cheese
  13. Break up the laughing cow cheese and stir everything together until all the noodles are evenly coated
  14. Add another 1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning and stir together
  15. Taste your pasta and add any extra salt, pepper, or Cajun seasoning you think it needs
  16. Slice up your chicken and add on top
