I can't believe its been a whole week since my last post!
Sorry about that!
It has been crazy busy here....Cody turned 14 this week.
He is such a handsome young man with such a big heart and great sense of humor! He always makes us laugh!
Last night I wanted pasta so I tried a new recipe I found on pinterest!
from The Wholesome Dish
This is not my photo but from the site where I got the recipe - I keep forgetting to take photos!
Here is the recipe....
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size chunks
- 2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 ½ cups chicken broth
- 1 cup milk
- 8 oz. dried fettuccini pasta
- ⅓ cup grated parmesan cheese
- Add the oil to a large pot (or large high sided skillet). Place over medium-high heat for two minutes. Add the chicken and the Cajun seasoning. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic. Cook 1 minute, stirring often.
- Add the broth and milk. Break the pasta in half and add it to the pot. Cover and bring to a rapid, rolling boil, stirring occasionally. *Note: Watch the pot carefully during the beginning of the cooking process as milk tends to boil over easily.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the pasta simmer, covered, for 8-13 minutes. Stir every 2-3 minutes to prevent sticking. Cook until there is ¼ to ½ inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot.
- Remove the pot from the heat. Stir in the parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
The wider the pot/skillet, the quicker the cooking time.

It was seriously tasty! For a recipe this easy and fussless (yes a new word I made up lol)
I was expecting it to be a little more bland but the flavours were really really good. It did need a bit more sauce but I will make this again!
Changes I will make next time
Like I stated before it needed a bit more sauce so I will add more milk (1 1/4 cp) and chicken broth (1 3/4 cp) and therefore have to add more cajun (3 tsp)
I am also a real fan of fresh herbs - I think this fabulous recipe could use a bit of fresh parsley or basil!
When I make it again I will let you all know!
