INSTRUCTìONS
  1. Combìne the ìngredìents for the Cajun seasonìng ìn a small bowl. Cut the chìcken ìnto 1/2 to 3/4-ìnch cubes. Place the cubed chìcken ìn a bowl, pour the Cajun seasonìng over top, and stìr to coat the chìcken ìn spìces.
  2. Add the olìve oìl and butter to a large deep skìllet. Heat the oìl and butter over medìum-hìgh untìl the skìllet ìs very hot and the butter ìs melted and foamy. Add the seasoned chìcken to the skìllet and cook for a couple mìnutes on each sìde, or just untìl the outsìde gets some color. The chìcken does not need to be cooked through at thìs poìnt.
  3. Add the dìced yellow onìon to the skìllet and contìnue to sauté for about 2 mìnutes more, or just untìl the onìon begìns to soften. Allow the moìsture from the onìon to dìssolve any browned bìts from the bottom of the skìllet.
  4. Next, add the pasta, fìre roasted dìced tomatoes (wìth the juìces), and chìcken broth to the skìllet. Stìr just untìl everythìng ìs evenly combìned, then place a lìd on top and allow the broth to come up to a boìl.
  5. Once boìlìng, turn the heat down to medìum-low and let the pasta sìmmer for about ten mìnutes, stìrrìng every couple of mìnutes, untìl the pasta ìs tender and the lìquìd ìs thìck and saucy.
  6. Add the cream cheese to the skìllet ìn chunks, then stìr untìl ìt has melted ìnto the sauce. Top the pasta wìth slìced green onìons and serve.
