Ingredients

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 box of mini farfalle pasta spaghetti works fine too
  • 1 tbsp Cajun’s choice blackened seasoning
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 bunch green onion
  • ½ cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 qt whipping cream
  • 1 ½ cup shredded or grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Season chicken breast to taste with salt, pepper, and blackened seasoning. Grill for about 3-4 on each side. If you don't have a grill, you can cook the chicken on a greased frying pan as well.
  • After the chicken is fully cooked, and cool down, chop it into 1 inch cubes and set aside.
  • Thinly slice the green onion and chop the sun dried tomatoes into small pieces.
  • In a large skillet, heat butter over medium high heat and add in the green onion, sun dried tomatoes, dried basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Once the green onion and sun dried tomatoes have been cooking for about 2 minutes, add in the whipping cream. Bring the heat down to low and add the Parmesan cheese once the sauce comes to a simmer.
  • Mix in the cubed chicken and stir every few minutes.
  • Make the pasta according to the package. Strain out the water and mix the pasta into the sauce.
