Cajun Pasta

(Picture borrowed from BlogChef; where I found this yummy recipe.)


2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into small strips) - I used Tyson boneless, skinless tenderloins (already in strips!)

4 oz linguini (cooked all dente) - I used regular spaghetti since that's what I had on hand!

2 tsp Cajun seasoning (I used "Slap Yo Mamma")

2 Tbsp butter

1 green onion (thinly sliced)

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp dried basil

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

1/8 tsp garlic powder

¼ c parmesan cheese

Step 1: Place chicken strips and Cajun seasoning in a bowl, toss the chicken with the seasoning until the chicken strips evenly coated with the seasoning.

Step 2: In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add chicken and sauté the chicken for 5 to 7 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.

Step 3: Reduce heat to low. Add green onions, heavy cream, tomatoes, basil, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Cook until heated through. Pour over hot linguini and toss with parmesan cheese.

(Makes 2 Servings)

Seriously folks, hubs said this was one of the best things I've ever made. Simple & satisfying...can't beat that!
