Cajun Chicken

Way back on Mardi Gras I tried to make a Cajun chicken pasta. I pretty much followed the standard recipe and the only things I changed is that I omitted salt, butter, and heavy cream. Yeah, it kind of turns out that those are the three things that make Cajun chicken pasta amazing. Last weekend it hit me that the chicken itself tasted fine it was the sauce that was horrid. Don’t ever try to use Almond Milk as a replacement for heavy cream in savory recipes, it just sucks. This time around I just decided to make the chicken and then put it over some rice, I have to say it turned out nicely.
