Comforting and delicious, our Kefir Cajun Chicken Pasta reminds us that there’s nothing like a warming pasta dish in the winter. To make this recipe, we marinate chicken in a collection of sauces, spices, and creamy Lifeway Kefir. Lifeway Kefir makes a great marinade because of its lactic acid and probiotic cultures. They work to break down the proteins in the chicken, making it soft, tender, and easier to digest. After marinating, we mix the chicken with vegetables and penne pasta, then top it with Lifeway Farmer Cheese and fresh parsley. Rich with flavor and ideal in texture, Our Kefir Cajun Chicken Pasta is a wholesome, hearty meal that is sure to please everyone at the dinner table.
