Cajun Chicken Pasta

I love the Small Thing blog for her hair tutorials, but also like a few of the recipes she has posted. I made her Cajun Chicken Pasta the other night with a few variations b/c of what I had on hand and what we preferred. Here is her recipe and here is how I made it:

8 oz linguine pasta
2 skinless, boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
2 Tbsp butter
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 green onion, sliced
1 onion, chopped
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Parmesan cheese

Boil the pasta according to package instructions.

Cut the chicken into large bite-sized pieces and place in a large plastic bag with the Cajun seasoning. Shake to coat.

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add chicken and saute until cooked through. Add the peppers and onions and saute about 3 minutes.

Reduce the heat and add the cream (use more if you wish) and spices. Head through and add the cooked linguine. Heat through.

Sprinkle with some Parmesan and serve!
