Cajun Spice

  • 2½ tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp red chili powder

For Cajun Chicken

  • Linguine 8 ounces uncooked whole wheat whole grain linguine (I used Blue Menu)
  • 1 pound chicken breast strips
  • 1-2 tsp Cajun spice (or to taste)
  • cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh parsley, chopped

What To Do (directions)

Cook linguine according to package instructions. Cut the chicken in small thin strips and season it with Cajun spice. Once the chicken sliced thin and seasoned, coat a skillet with cooking spray and saute the chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside. Add the olive oil to the skillet. Place the onions and peppers in the skillet, and season with salt and pepper. You can also throw in some more Cajun spice if you can handle the heat. Throw in the sliced mushrooms with the peppers and onions. Saute them until tender, then add the chicken back to the skillet, and add about a cup of skim milk. Cook until it comes to a boil and taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Add the cooked linguine to the skillet, throw in some parsley and toss.Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
