Cajun Chicken and Pasta
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
1 green or red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
3-4 green onions with tops, thinly sliced or 1/2 of a red onion, cut into thin strips
6 large mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon minced lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water
8 ounces pasta, cooked and drained
Place the chicken and cajun seasoning in a plastic bag and shake to coat.
In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the chicken and cook for about 5-7 minutes (just until it loses the pink color).
Add the vegetables and cook and stir for another 3-4 minutes.
Add the half-and-half and the remaining seasonings; heat through.
Serve over pasta.
