  1. 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add linguini, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl, and toss to coat.
  3. 3. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until no longer pink and juices run clear, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add bell peppers*, and green onions; cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat, and stir in heavy cream. Season the sauce with basil, salt, garlic powder and ground black pepper, and heat through stirring often.
