  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 whole red bell pepper diced
  • 1 whole green bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 whole medium yellow onion diced
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 pound dried pasta such as linguine, spaghetti or fettuccine


  • Combine chicken breast and two teaspoons of Cajun seasoning. Toss chicken to coat. Allow to marinate while you cook the vegetables. Start cooking the pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat butter and olive oil together in a large pan until butter melts. Add in green and red bell peppers, onion and garlic. Cook just until they start to soften about 3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  • To the same pan you cooked the veggies in, add the marinated chicken. Cook until browned and cooked through, 5 - 7 minutes. Return veggies to the pan.
  • Add cream and sour cream to the pan. Cook until the sour cream has dissolved into sauce and sauce is smooth. Add in noodles and toss to coat. Turn off heat. Allow to set 5 minutes. Stir once more, season to taste with salt and serve.
