Reviews for Quick Cajun Chicken Penne
"Chicken was better than shrimp. My grilled shrimp got tough. I probably cooked them too long. If I tried it again with the shrimp I would probably saute them in the pan vs the grill. I didn't use the scallions just some diced onion in the pan. Will make again!!"
"This is one of our main go-to meals that I make several times a month. It's that good!"
"Love this recipe. So simple and so good."
"This was terrific and easy to make. We used spaghetti noodles. The sauce was delicious with garlic french bread! I think next time I will use shrimp instead of chicken!"
"This was very quick and fast, it was prefect for a hungry crowd, I used my homemade Alfredo sauce and the whole dish tasted like it came from a restaurant. Thanks."
"This was really good & easy to make. I only used one jar of sauce and it was perfect"
