Recipe: Creamy Cajun Chicken and Linguine

This year for Valentine’s Day we stayed in. Since I am not big on this holiday to start with, I was happy with this. My son ended up with the Flu and home that night (and the rest of the week off school) so we made it work. My boyfriend made me a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner. I’m a chicken and pasta addict so the man fed right into that addiction! He has a background in cooking so I thought it was time the man cooked for me. Here is the recipe he used with a few of his own little tweaks.


  • 4  boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into thin strips or cubes
  • 1 pound Mueller’s linguine cooked al dente
  • 4 teaspoons McCormick Cajun seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 thinly sliced green onion
  • 2 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Nakano Red Pepper Seasoned Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Nakano Basil & Oregano Seasoned Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese


  1. Place chicken, vinegars and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté chicken in butter until chicken is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat add green onion, heavy cream, tomatoes, basil, salt, garlic powder, black pepper and heat through.
  4. Pour over hot linguine and toss with Parmesan cheese.
