Ingredients

2 ounces uncooked fettuccine
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 medium green pepper, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with Cajun seasoning. In a large skillet, cook chicken in 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Add remaining oil to the drippings; saute the mushrooms, onions, green pepper and garlic until crisp-tender.
Combine cornstarch and cream until smooth; stir into vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Add salt if desired and pepper. Return chicken to the pan. Drain fettuccine and add to pan; toss gently. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
