Directions:
Pat the chicken dry on both sides with a paper towel. Sprinkle with the taco seasoning on all sides. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron pan over medium heat. Add the seasoned chicken to the pan and cook, turning once, until the chicken is completely cooked through (about 5 minutes per side). Remove chicken from pan, place on plate, and cover with foil. Add the butter to the pan that the chicken was cooked in and melt over medium heat. Slowly add the heavy cream, whisking to incorporate all the seasonings and browned bits left behind from cooking the chicken. Whisk constantly and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the cheese, rotel and stir until thickened and the cheese is melted. Stir in the cooked pasta and reduce heat to low. Slice chicken and place on top of pasta. Serve immediately.
