Cajun Chicken Pasta

Okay... you may lift your jaw now. That's right. I am posting a dinner recipe! :) And not just any dinner recipe, but a fantastically delicious recipe!

I love this meal. It is so delicious and filling. It has the added bonus of getting on the table in under 20 minutes. The chicken is not too spicy, so if you like a little kick to your food, you could always up the cajun seasoning. Don't shy away from it, though. Believe me. I suck at eating spicy foods. I just don't do well with it and I love this meal, so that should tell you something about the heat/spicy factor. The heavy cream makes it slightly creamy, but not overly so. Everything works together so well!

Enjoy!


Cajun Chicken Pasta

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 tsp cajun seasoning
2 TBSP butter
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 green onion, sliced
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp black pepper

Linguine, cooked
Parmesan


Toss chicken with cajun seasoning. In large skillet, saute chicken in butter 5-7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add peppers and onion; cook 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat. Add cream and seasonings; heat through. Serve over linguine. Top with parmesan.

Oh, hi there and hello. Anything smothered in parmesan HAS to be utterly edible and entirely delectable, right? I'd never think to pair it with cajun, though. Will be trying this fo shizzle!
