Cajun Chicken Pasta


Description

Delicious pasta dish with a hint of Cajun flavoring–a more flavorful alternative to alfredo. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 4 ounces linguine, cooked al dente (or 8 oz for 2 cups cream)
  • 2 tsp. Cajun seasoning (more to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 thinly sliced green onion
  • 12 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbs chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until chicken is tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat. Add green onions, cream, tomatoes, basil, salt, garlic powder, and pepper and heat through. (The longer you let it simmer, the thicker it will be.)
  4. Pour over hot linguine and toss with Parmesan cheese. Add more Cajun seasoning if desired.
