Foodie Friday: Cajun Chicken Pasta ala Chili's

My mom and I recently went to Chili's for lunch with Little Peachy. She ordered the Cajun Chicken Pasta. I decided that it would be a fairly easy recipe to knock off. I googled a Cajun seasoning recipe to see what spices to add. (I know that you can buy a Cajun seasoning mix, but I have a cupboard full of spices and don't need to add another.) I ended up with a yummy mix and an easy recipe.
Cajun Chicken Pasta

Cajun Seasoning Mix
1 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
1/4 t onion powder
pinch of dried parsley
1/8 t cayenne pepper
1/4 t chili powder

1. Cut two chicken breasts into strips. Cook in olive oil. Add grated garlic and the seasoning mix.
2. Cook 1 box of penne pasta.
3. Mix cooked pasta with jar of Alfredo sauce.
4. Dish pasta onto plates, top with chicken and diced tomatoes.

Serves 4.
