Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
4 ounce linguine, cooked al dente
2 tsp. cajun seasoning (I used this)
2 tbsp butter
1 thinly sliced green onions
1-2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp. chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1. Place chicken and cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat.

2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute chicken in butter or margarine until chicken is tender (about 5-7 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 tos with Parmesan cheese.

This is the recipe exactly as I found it here. I made the following changes:
1)Left out the tomatoes. I don't like tomatoes, but I think I may try them next time.
2)I used 2 green onions and it was not too much.
3)I put some extra parmesan on top before serving.
