Preparing the Chicken
1. In a small bowl, whisk together salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, rosemary, oregano and cayenne.
2. Sprinkle more than half the cajun spice mix all over the chicken on both sides and reserve remaining spice mix for later.
3. Heat oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat.
4. Cook the chicken until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes a side.
5. Transfer cooked chicken to a cutting board and let rest while you make the pasta.
Preparing the Pasta
1. Reduce heat to medium.
2. Add onion and garlic to the same skillet and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes.
3. Add the uncooked pasta, milk and water or broth.
4. Season with the remaining seasoning blend.
5. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring often until pasta is al dente and liquid is absorbed and creamy, 12 to 15 minutes.
Final Steps
1. Slice the chicken and transfer it on top of the pasta along with the chopped tomatoes and chopped cilantro.
