Cajun Chicken Pasta

This is another favorite around my house.  My husband loves spicy foods and we both love chicken and pasta!  Don't worry, this one isn't too spicy...just enough to give it a great flavor!

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 pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 green onion
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder

  1. Cook pasta and drain.
  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 parmesan cheese.
I normally only use one green bell pepper as we are not huge vegetable people, so two green and one red bell pepper were a little much for us.

Yum! Have you tried making peanut butter pasta? This reminds me of it (minus the peanut butter, of course!) I think it's great, but Sexy Nerd...well, not so much! That's what grilled cheese sandwiches are for though ;)
