A few days ago, I played a prank on my family and said I had ordered takeout from Chili’s. They couldn’t tell the difference. We all love Chili’s but we also don’t have enough free time to head out and eat out. Every time we go to Chili’s, I always order this cajun chicken pasta. But this time, I was able to make a copycat one for about 20 dollars. My family and I had a wonderful time savoring our lunch together. And I felt so fulfilled being able to make something similar to the original from scratch. Thanks to The Recipe Critic on Youtube for this copycat recipe. It never fails every time I try it. Try it out and see for yourself!



  • Chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • Cajun seasoning
  • Butter or margarine
  • Heavy cream
  • Lemon pepper seasoning
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Penne pasta
  • Diced roma tomatoes


Immediately after washing the chicken in water, place it in a Tupperware container or a large sealable bag. Shake in the cajun spice until it is well distributed.

Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter in a large nonstick pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. As you’re putting the chicken in, turn it over. Before cooking, check with a knife to make sure the meat is no longer pink in the middle.

As soon as the chicken is through cooking, combine the heavy cream, 2 tablespoons of butter, a sprinkle of lemon pepper, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder in a saucepan over medium heat until thickened. When the cream mixture reaches the point of boiling, the pasta is added immediately after. Before removing the pan from the heat and serving, carefully mix the ingredients.

Cooked chicken should be sliced thinly on a cutting board.
