This is not a low cal recipe, but it tastes oh so good and makes for great comfort food!
I love a good bowl of pasta when I am craving comfort food. This cajun chicken pasta recipe is one of my favorite, go-to recipes. Every time I make it, I get lots of compliments and it seems to be a real crowd pleaser. Since the pasta itself is pretty filling, I usually pair it with a light salad and that is plenty to complete the meal. This recipe does require several ingredients, but trust me it is worth it!
4 ounces of linguine pasta
2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons of butter
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 green onion
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon of dried basil
1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
Boil a pot of water and cook the pasta per the instructions on the box.
Next you will cook the chicken breasts. Cover them in the Cajun seasoning. Saute them in a frying pan in butter on medium heat. When the chicken is just starting to get tender mix in the red and green sliced bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, and chopped green onions. Saute for two to three minutes.
Lastly, add in the cream, basil, lemon pepper, salt, garlic powder, and ground black pepper. Then you can add in the linguine pasta. Mix everything together thoroughly. Top it with the parmesan cheese and you are ready to serve it!
When I made this cajun chicken pasta recipe I made it for myself and two other people. There was plenty of pasta to feed all three of us. We even had enough for us all to go back for seconds. I also topped mine with some crushed red pepper to give it a little extra kick. I hope you will give this recipe a try. If you do, let us know what you think!
