Twydyelliott 2y agoThis 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.
Tatrog 2y agoI make it every week and everyone loves it.
cthornell 2y agoMy 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.
JThacik 3y agoIt was okay, I would possibly make it again.
bigfran 3y 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.

cjcammarata 4y agoThis 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
