- Meanwhile, place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté chicken in butter or margarine until chicken is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat and green onion, heavy cream, tomatoes, basil, salt, garlic powder, black pepper and heat through.
- Pour over linguini and toss. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
I love this dish. I'm not crazy about sun dried tomatoes though so I just put in two diced roma tomatoes. I also added a bit more green onion and stirred the parmesan into the sauce at the end to make sort of an alfredo sauce. I used about a 1/4 cup. It was really good! I also used penne pasta instead of linguine.
