    Emily Jane's Note:

    If you like it HOT and flavorful, this one is for you! Served with garlic bread it's to die for. I made this one up a couple nights ago and it turned out amazingly well. Use 1/2 a chiptole pepper if you'd rather your pasta not be so spicy (but it'll still have a kick).

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Add rub or marinade to chicken and set in refrigerator for at least an hour (or you can buy an already-cajun-marinated chicken breast).
    2. 2
      In the blender, combine whipping cream, can of tomatoes, garlic, chipotle pepper (pouring in a little of the adobo sauce for an extra flavor boost, if desired), and salt & pepper to taste. Blend well and set aside.
    3. 3
      Sautee marinated/rubbed chicken in olive oil until almost done and then add red pepper, onion and mushroom, sauteeing until vegetables are tender.
    4. 4
      Turn heat down to medium-low and pour cream sauce over chicken & veggies.Simmer for 30-45 minutes.
    5. 5
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    6. 6
      While the sauce is simmering, cook the pasta only about half-way through; when sauce is done simmering and has thickened a bit, add the pasta and coat thoroughly.
    7. 7
      Pour into a baking dish and sprinkle with parmesean cheese; bake covered with foil for 20 minutes; uncover and bake an additional 10-12 minutes. (this is also a good time to add the garlic bread to the oven, if preparing).
    8. 8
      Remove from oven and let sit for a couple of minutes - and then ENJOY!
