  • Sprinkle both sides of chicken breast with 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, or to taste.

  • Grill chicken breast and pork sausage on the preheated grill until browned and no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut chicken and sausage into bite-size pieces.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the farfalle pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion, and garlic in hot butter until slightly softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir chicken and sausage pieces into vegetables, reduce heat to medium-low, and pour 1 cup half-and-half into skillet. Stir to combine.

  • Mix cornstarch into remaining 1/2 cup half-and-half in a small bowl until smooth; pour into skillet and stir until sauce simmers and thickens, about 5 minutes. Toss cooked farfalle pasta into mixture until coated; season with additional Cajun seasoning and dried basil.

I LOVE this! I added shrimp and made it better! And didn't measure the Cajun seasoning, I just sprinkled until it looked good. I'm also new at cooking so this was an easy start. I used a indoor grill and the chicken cooked perfectly. I definitely recommend this recipe. Read More

I added mushrooms and served with zucchini noodles and regular noodles for my husband. We loved it! I also was out of Cajun seasoning and made my own. Yum! Read More

We loved it. I used bulk sausage instead of links as that is what I had on hand and chicken thighs instead of chicken breast. Good flavor! Changed the quantity to feed 6 as there are 5 in my house and I always like to have leftovers. Read More
