Cajun Chicken Pasta


Cajun Chicken Pasta
print this recipe

4 ounces linguine pasta
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into 1 inch cubes
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (I used the chicken seasoning from this recipe)
2 tablespoons butter
1 green bell pepper, chopped (I left out this. We're not huge pepper people)
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
4 fresh mushrooms, sliced (I left out this as well. We're REALLY not mushroom people)
1 green onion, minced
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (I actually preferred it without the cheese)

Cook the pasta according to package directions.

Cut up the chicken, then toss in a bowl with the cajun seasoning. Saute in a large skillet  until the chicken is fully cooked, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the peppers, green onions and mushrooms into the pan and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Reduce the heat on the pan and pour in the cream. Mix in the basil, lemon pepper, garlic powder, salt and black pepper and simmer until fully heated.

Pour the sauce and chicken over top of the pasta and garnish with Parmesan cheese.
