1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the chicken and stir fry for 3-5 minutes, then add chopped onion and cook about 3-4 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and Cajun spices. Add in the garlic and ginger and stir fry for another 5 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

2. Gradually whisk in chicken broth, then the cream and mix until the mixture is smooth. Reduce heat and allow the sauce to thicken, about 5 minutes. Finally add in chopped spinach, stir well and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until spinach is slightly wilted. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

3. Remove from the heat, top with additional salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning if desired. Enjoy immediately on top of rice or pasta.
