Spaghetti with Seared Cajun Chicken and Salsa Fresca


This is the latest dish I created in our Cafe…It turns out to be my boss favorite meal. It is a grilled chicken spiced with cajun seasoning served with a salsa and spaghetti tomato based noodles…Did you know that cajun seasoning is mainly composed of cayenne pepper. Cayenne is known for its thousand of health benefits. It is great for the stomach and the intestinal tract. It stimulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines and aids in assimilation and elimination. . . Some reserach says it can do everything from kills cancer cells in the prostate, lungs, and pancreas to immediately stop a heart attack within 30 seconds. “A teaspoon of cayenne could bring the patient out of the heart attack.” . . .
