  • Slice 1 pound of chicken breast into thin cutlets and each side with salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning.
  • Now you cake cook the chicken or a skillet, on the grill, or even in the oven.
  • Once the cooked chicken is cooled, cut it up into small cubes and set is aside.
  • Then cook 1 pound of penne pasta until al dente. Then drain the water out and keep the pasta warm by placing it back in the pot with the lid on.
  • Now begin making your pasta sauce by adding 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, 1 bunch of chopped green onion, 1 sliced red bell pepper, 1 sliced green bell pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 2 tbsp Cajun seasoning in a large skillet.
  • Stir all the ingredients together until the bell peppers become tender.
  • Now pour in 1 quart of heavy cream into the skillet and let it come to a simmer.
  • Remove the Cajun pasta sauce from the stove top and add in 1 1/2 cups of grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Let the cheese melt, then all the chicken back in, along with 1 pound of cooked penne pasta. Stir together and enjoy!
