  • Cajun Chicken Pasta by Bean

    Posted March 28, 2006 03:41 AM

    I made this last night and it was excellent! It really tasted like something you would get at a restaurant. This would be great for company as long as they like a little kick!

    A few changes I seasoned the chicken breasts and grilled them, used fresh garlic and no garlic powder and added sweet onion, and 1 t. Creole seasoning to it. I used jarred mushrooms (for DH).

    Cajun Chicken Pasta

    2 each chicken breasts halves, skinless, boneless, chopped in thin strips
    2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
    2 tablespoons butter
    8 slices green bell pepper
    8 slices red bell peppers
    4 large mushrooms fresh, sliced
    1 each green onion sliced
    1 cup heavy cream (1 to 2)
    1/4 teaspoon basil
    1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    4 ounces pasta, linguini cooked, drained
    1 x parmesan cheese grated (optional)

    Place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl or resealable plastic bag; toss or shake to coat. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until almost tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add peppers, mushrooms and onions ; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat. Add cream and seasonings ; heat through. Add linguine and toss; heat through. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired.
