Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • fresh shredded parmesan, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 4 tsp. cajun seasoning
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 8 oz. cooked penne pasta (drained)

Here’s What you need to do:

First, Slightly moisten the chicken with water. Then, in a large resealable plastic bag, shakethe chicken and cajun seasoning until the chicken is evenly coated. Next, In a large skillet, saute the chicken in 2 tbsp of butter over a medium heat, turning when necessary. Once the chicken is about half done, grab another skillet and combine the heavy cream, 2 tbsp of butter, and the rest of the seasonings over a medium heat, stirring every now and then. When the creamy mixture begins to bubble, add the pasta and turn off the heat, make sure to stir well. Once the chicken is cooked all the way through, take it to the cutting board and cut it into strips. Serve the pasta and sauce onto big serving plates, and then top with chicken, diced tomatoes and parmesan cheese. Chuck a thick, garlic infused slice of Texas toast on top and enjoy your masterpiece!
