  1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with Cajun seasoning. In a large skillet, cook chicken in 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Add remaining oil to the drippings; saute the mushrooms, onions, green pepper and garlic until crisp-tender.
  2. Combine cornstarch and cream until smooth; stir into vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Add salt if desired and pepper. Return chicken to the pan. Drain fettuccine and add to pan; toss gently. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

It was fine, but nothing spectacular. We decided not to add it to our list of meals to make again. Nothing wrong with it, just not what we were looking for.

Extremely flavorful, IF you coat the chicken with Cajun seasonings! And then you don't need to use any salt or pepper later on( I made my own Cajun seasonings as I don't like the MSG filled prod...

Excellent! A requested family favorite that makes an excellent lunch the next day. When making larger amounts I do half cream and the rest half and half. To get it to thicken more I use at le...

This was pretty good, but I prefer the Cajun Chicken Pasta by Tammy Schilling, it's just a little creamier than this recipe and I think the flavors blend better. Thanks for the post.

We really enjoyed this dish. I used chicken broth instead of the half and half, but did melt 4 oz. of low fat cream cheese into the sauce to make up the creaminess. I really like all the veggies...
