I tried a new recipe that I found via Google on www.food.com: Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta!! It tastes like a spicy less rich variation of your typical Fettuccine Alfredo...which I do NOT like. So I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this meal.
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
4 ounces linguine, cooked al dente
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
1 thinly sliced green onion
1 -2 cup heavy whipping cream*
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
*the amount of whipping cream is determined by number of servings: I used 1 c. for the 2 of us and it was the perfect amount for J to have a small second helping
--In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté chicken in butter or margarine until chicken is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes, sprinkling with Cajun seasoning.
--Reduce heat add green onion, heavy cream, tomatoes, basil, salt, garlic powder, black pepper and heat through. *I added additional Cajun seasoning for extra spice and flavor
--Pour over hot linguine and toss with Parmesan cheese.
*We were so hungry I forgot to take picture -- this image via
This is definitely going to make more appearances at our house =)
Hope you Enjoy!
