Chicken is one of the most popular dishes. chicken bacon ranch pasta dish is another popular dish. I’ve got a spicy Cajun chicken pasta recipe that is kind of similar to the one served at TGI Fridays. Give it a try and see what you think.
This recipe gives 4 servings. If you want to make it a little or a lot spicier you can add cayenne with the chicken seasoning or sprinkle a 1/2 teaspoon on when the vegetables are cooking.
8 oz. linguine
4 chicken breast, skinless and boneless
1 tablespoon Cajun spice – like Tony Cachere’s
4 tablespoons butter
2 bell pepper
1 red pepper
4 green onions
3 cups cream – substitute some whole milk to lower the fat content if you want
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese
Start boiling the water for the pasta, follow the directions on the package. Cut the chicken breasts in bite size pieces and coat with cajun spice, then saute the chicken with the butter, olive oil can be used also. While the chicken is cooking up chop the vegetables. When the chicken is done cooking add the vegetables. I like to cook my chicken so it’s a little browned. I think it adds a bit more flavor and texture to the dish. After the vegetables have cooked for a few minutes, lower the heat and pour in the cream, mixing to fully incorporate the ingredients. Also at this point mix in the spices. Take the drained pasta and put in a serving dish and pour the chicken mixture over the pasta. You can mix it all up or not, depending on your tasted. Put Parmesan on each of portion after serving.
