What's on the Menu Tonight?

What's on the menu at my house tonight???

A replica of Red Lobster's Cajun Chicken Pasta!!!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into thin strips
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
1 -2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces linguine or 4 ounces fettuccine pasta, cooked and drained
grated parmesan cheese, to taste

Place chicken an Cajun seasoning in a bowl or resealable plastic bag; toss or shake to coat.

In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter until almost tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Reduce heat. Add cream and seasoning; heat through. Add pasta and toss; heat through. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese if desired. Adjust the Cajun seasoning if you like it spicier.

I'm serving mine tonight with, you guessed it, Cheddar Biscuits! Don't get excited, they are the make from a bag Bisquick ones! LOL
