Louisiana Chicken Pasta


For Chicken:

4 thinly sliced chicken cutlets
1 tsp of onion powder
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp cajun seasoning
Salt & pepper to taste
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup of panko
1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Vegetable or canola oil for frying

For Cajun cream sauce:

1/2 cup of mushrooms, finely diced optional
1/2 cup of red bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 cup of green bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 cup of white onion, finely diced
1 tbsp of garlic paste
1 tbsp of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp of butter
2 cups of heavy cream
1 cup of parmesan cheese
Cajun seasoning to taste, about 1 tsp
1/2 package or 9oz of Girelle pasta or bowtie pasta or any pasta of choice, I like linguine
Freshly chopped parsley optional


For Chicken:

Pat chicken dry with a piece of paper towel then season on both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and cajun seasoning
Combine panko and parmesan cheese in one bowl
In another bowl, slightly beat eggs then dip chicken into egg wash, then panko and cheese mixture
Pat breading into chicken to ensure it does not fall off before frying
Heat oil on medium heat then pan fry the chicken cutlets until golden brown on each side and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side
Set cooked chicken aside on wire rack or paper towels to cool
Cook pasta according to package instructions before starting sauce and set aside

For Cajun Cream Sauce:

In a nonstick skillet on medium heat, melt butter and sauté onions, mushrooms and bell peppers until soft, about 2-3 minutes
Once soft and fragrant season with salt and pepper and add garlic, heavy cream and parmesan cheese, mix well until everything is well combined
Next, season with cajun seasoning to taste and lower heat to medium low
Allow sauce to come to a simmer and thicken, about 5 minutes
Sauce is done when you can trace a line across the back of the spoon with your fingertip. If the line remains visible, the sauce is thick enough
Add cooked pasta to the sauce and combine well until all the noodles are well coated
Once pasta and sauce is combined, turned off the heat and add sliced chicken on top
Top with freshly chopped parsley if desired and serve hot
