Step-by-step guide:

1. One

Preheat your oven to 200C (400F).

2. Two

Place your chicken tenders on a baking tray and bake for 12 minutes. Alternatively, cook in your air fryer at 200C (400F) for 8 minutes.

3. Three

Meanwhile, place your pasta into a pot, cover with boiling water and simmer for 7 – 10 minutes; it’s best to cook the pasta a little al dente so it holds its structure in the sauce!

4. Four

Heat your oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add your diced pepper, stir and fry for 5 minutes.

5. Five

Add the cajun seasoning to the pan and mix with the peppers. Cook for 2 more minutes.

6. Six

Add the milk and double cream to the pan. Mix.

7. Seven

Add the cream cheese and whisk into the sauce until smooth. Once the sauce is bubbling, add the grated parmesan and cook for a further 3 – 5 minutes; until the sauce has thickened a little.

8. Eight

Drain the pasta and add it to the pan.

9. Nine

Chop or full apart the chicken tenders into bite size pieces.

10. Ten
