Cajun Chicken & Pasta

I found this recipe online and wanted to share. My family LOVED this. The younger ones usually don't like to much spice, but it was just enough to make everyone happy.

  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Prep time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook time: 20 Minutes


  • 1 pound(s) Linguine
  • 1 pound(s) chicken breasts Cubed
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 3 bell peppers Sliced red, green or both*
  • 2 green onions Diced
  • 6 cup(s) heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon(s) basil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper
  • 8 tablespoon(s) parmesan cheese Grated


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. Meanwhile, place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl, and toss to coat.

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.

4. In a large bowl, toss linguini with sauce. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.

*I've used about half a bag of sliced frozen peppers and it came out fine.
