Cajun Chicken Pasta Skillet

Recipe found here A Zesty Bite

Ingredients:

2  boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into small strips)
4  ounces linguini (cooked al dente)
2  tsp. Cajun seasoning
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  Cup parmesan cheese

Directions:

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

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 (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees).

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.

I serve it with fresh garlic bread.

 

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
