Cajun spiced chicken is cooked in a spicy cream sauce along with bell peppers and zucchini noodles. A low carb twist on the popular Cajun chicken pasta making this classic pasta 100x better and guilt free too! Cajun Chicken Pasta (Zoodles)Pasta is the ultimate comfort food, but all the added carbs are not. Thanks to zucchini noodles, now you can have your pasta and enjoy it too! I replaced the pasta for zucchini “pasta” and used lots of sliced bell peppers to make this dish as healthy and light as possible.

The chicken is first tossed with lots of Cajun spices and pan seared until tender. The bell peppers and garlic are then added. At this point, feel free to make this pasta healthier by adding any of your favorite veggies. Broccoli, mushrooms, or sun dried tomatoes are all great add ins.

Next a splash of heavy cream is added to tie everything together. If you’re on a low-calorie diet, use sour-cream or half and half instead.

To finish off this yummy pasta, toss in your spiralized zucchini the very last-minute and top with some minced parsley or grated parmesan if desired. If you don’t have spiralized zucchini, pasta that has been cooked aldente will also work too! Cajun Chicken Pasta (Zoodles)

  1. one of my favorite recipes I have in rotation..sooo easy and very very flavorful !!! a must try!!!!

    I like to let my zuchinni noodles simmer a little bit when adding in for the last few minutes …

    next time i will be trying with shrimp 😋

  2. Made this tonite. Very tasty. Easy to make. I did add a little chili powder. I was going to add some diced chilis but I forgot. I will definitely make this again. The only thing I don’t get is the calorie count. The cream per serving has more calories than listed

  3. Very tasty and so easy! Will def be adding this to weekly menu.

  4. OMG was this unbelievably awesome! I’ve made this twice in the last week. So simple and fast. I love recipes that are easy to remember. I didn’t change a thing. Thank-you!!!

  5. Is it 1/2 cup or 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream

  6. Super delicious. This is definitely added to our faves list. Very easy and full meal. Nothing else needed.

  7. This looks delicious and I’m excited to try those exile. Please don’t omit the fiber from the carbohydrate section of the nutrition information. I’m eating a very low carb diet but count my net carbs (total carbs minus the fiber). You have left out very useful information. Weight Watcher’s would also use this info to calculate their points for food from tracking.

    1. I made this for dinner tonight using shrimp instead of chicken. I’m also on a keto diet and when I calculated the nutritional info in SparkPeople this is what it shows. Net carbs comes to 7.5. And it was DELICIOUS!!!! Only thing I did differently besides the shrimp was to add a tablespoon of chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil, YUM YUM YUM!!! (Also made my own Cajun seasoning and omitted the salt).The sodium is higher because I used shrimp. Just getting tired of chicken almost every day…needed to switch it up for one night.
