Chili's Cajun Chicken Pasta is on of the most sought after recipes from our copy cat recipe collection. Copy cat recipe means it is a clone, or made in a test kitchen to taste similar to the real thing served at the restaurant, but it is not a stolen recipe from the restaurant. Most likely you will not be able to tell the difference, as we try to get it as close as possible to the real thing as we can.
