“Cajun cooking is a combination of French and Southern cuisines. It is robust, country style cookery - and so is this dish! Laissez le bon temp roulez and bon appetit!” - by Carol Spradling

"I thought this recipe would likely give anyone a heart attack, so I fiddled around with it a bit. I used low fat sour cream instead of the heavy cream, and used light parmesan. It turned out delicious..." See more; my husband loved it, and he hates it when I "low fat" everything. Much healthier than the 62g of fat per serving! Thanks for the Fab recipe, Carol! around with it"
"This was very good though I prefer to use fresh ingredients. I used fresh garlic (4 cloves), squeeze of lemon instead of lemon/pepper, 1/2 & 1/2 instead of heavy cream. Rotini pasta for ease of eating..." See more and I think it 'catches' the sauce better. I also chopped up the chicken and the peppers for our kids. Used olive oil not butter. Very pretty when finished with the red and green peppers. Next time I will make a little roue after sauteing to help the sauce thicken. I used quite a bit more seasoning. In the end it was delicious."
"When ten of us share our N.C. house rental for our yearly vacations, I always do all of the cooking and am constantly looking for meals that can feed a crowd. Well, this recipe certainly did the trick..." See more! I used evaporated skim milk in place of the heavy cream and penne in lieu of linguini. Everyone truly raved about this dish!"
