Cajun Chicken Pasta

I absolutely love this dish.  It has so much flavor and is a fairly simple dish to make.  With chicken and pasta, what more could you ask for?

Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Yields:  4 Servings


1/2 lb linguine pasta
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips
1 Tbsp and 1 tsp cajun seasoning
1/4 cup butter
2 green bell peppers, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 green onion, chopped
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
parmesean cheese

  1. Cook pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, place chicken and cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until no longer pink and juices run clear.  Add green and red bell peppers and green onions; cook for 2 to 3 min.  Reduce heat, and stir in heavy cream.  Season the sauce with basil, lemon pepper, and garlic powder and heat through.
  4. Toss linguine with sauce and sprinkle with parmesean cheese.
