Chicken in cajun spices sauteed with bell peppers and mushrooms and presented in a basil-cream sauce over linguine
"My husband took this meal down in minutes. I found this recipe after searching for something to make with my leftover chicken, mushrooms, and cream (had chicken marsala the night before). The flavor was excellent. I didn't have the bell peppers, basil, or linguine, so I used penne and went without the peppers. The Creole seasoning I had was perfect with the chicken, mushrooms, and penne. I sliced the chicken as others have and sauteed it in butter - it was very moist. This is now a favorite weeknight recipe."- cthornell

JThacik 8 months agoIt was okay, I would possibly make it again.
bigfran 9 months agoPicture shows penne pasta, says 'linguini'. Amount of chicken to use is nebulous. My attempt turned out Very salty (Cajun spice is typically 12% RDA sodium). I will try again with penne, more chicken and less Cajun spice.

DaynaDanielle 2 years agoExcellent! It's a very versatile recipe and I also added andouille sausage and a bit more Cajun seasonings to my liking. Easy to make and easy cleanup but most of all delicious.

Firstjohn48 2 years agoBe Advised- Do not add more Cajun seasoning as I did (ignorantly thinking the chicken need to be completely covered). It came out WAY TOO SALTY!
smithsuzanne 3 years agoI'm giving it 4 stars only because I interpreted the recipe to my suiting. I used olive oil to saute with (no mention of butter in the required list of items). I used much more cajun spice than mentioned and cut the chicken into small pieces. None of that was mentioned in the recipe. It was a very good recipe after making those few changes.
FLA-cook 3 years agoI decided to make several changes to this. First I left out the mushrooms, I added andouille sausage and used one one chicken breast. I used real garlic. I left out the lemon pepper, not needed. I sauteed the chicken and sausage, with the spices. I set aside the chicken/sausage and then sauteed the peppers and onions. Added back the chicken/sausage and a half cup of chicken stock to deglaze the pan, then added the cream to make sauce.
