Cajun Chicken Linguine

2 Boneless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 tsp cajun seaoning
2 Tbsp butter
8 slices each of Red & Green Bell Peppers
4 large mushrooms, sliced
1 green onion
1-2 cups heavy cream
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp black pepper
6 oz linguine

Season chicken with cajun seasoning. In a large skillet over medium heat saute chicken pieces in butter until almost tender (5-7 minutes).

Add veggies -- saute 2-3 minutes until crisp-tender. (You don't want them too done or they will get soggy by the time you are ready to serve.)

Reduce heat, add cream and seasonings. Heat through. Add cooked linguine. Heat through & serve.

Since my family loves this recipie I prep several pounds of chicken in advance, put the cajun seasoning on and then freeze the chicken in the correct portions for the recipie. Then the recipie takes only about 20 minutes to complete.

Is there a specific cajun seasoning you use/recommend for this? I want to try it our this weekend and want the best results. Thanks!
