Share it:

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."

This turned out pretty good. Everyone ate it. I didn't have Cajun seasoning so I used a New Orleans style seasoning I had. I may add a little red pepper or chilli pepper next time to add a little more spice. I finely chopped up some mushrooms and onions to go in the dish so the kids wouldn't see the veggies. I didn't have the bell peppers so I just added a can of chopped tomatoes. I would try it again.

Picture 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.

This was amazing. My boyfriend and I loved it. We made a few changes like dicing up the chicken and adding some shredded mozzarella cheese. We will make this again. Yummy
