I love trying new recipes every now & then. However, long recipes are quite intimidating. I am not a huge pasta lover, but this one just caught my attention in the paper a few weeks ago. I decided to give it a try & we are all glad that I did!
Cajun Chicken Pasta
4 oz. Pasta, cooked
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked. (We were in a hurry, so I pulled the Tyson already cooked chicken breasts from the freezer. They added a great smokey flavor.) Slice into thin strips or dice into bite size pieces.
Combine the chicken & pasta.
Add 2 Tbsp. Butter & 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. Mix well.
Add the following seasonings:
2 tsp. cajun seasonings
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. lemon pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1 green bell pepper finely chopped
1 red bell pepper finely chopped
green onions finely chopped
4 fresh mushrooms, diced
Coat the chicken & pasta well.
Stir in 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or half & half
Top with 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese.
