Today's Dinner


I missed Menu Plan Monday this week, but wanted to share what I'm making for dinner tonight. I got this recipe from I think I'll serve it with salad and garlic bread. I'm making pudding for dessert. DH is a huge fan of Cajun food.

4 ounces linguine
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning (I use Zatarin's)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup chopped green bell peppers
1/4 cup chopped red bell peppers
4 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 thinly sliced green onion
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

In a large pot with boiling salted water cook pasta until al dente; drain. While the pasta is cooking, place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat. In a large skillet over medium heat saute chicken in butter until chicken is tenderAdd green and red bell peppers, sliced mushrooms and onions, and cook for 2-3 minutes . Reduce heat; add heavy cream, basil, lemon pepper, salt, garlic powder and pepper and heat through. In a large bowl toss linguini with sauce.
