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 fat free half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 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.
