Fast, easy, delicious. What's not to love? I doubled the recipe, with a full pound of linguine. Suggestions to simplify a double order: 1) Use precooked chicken (I used Costco packaged rotisserie breast). 2) If you use a good Cajun/Creole (same) seasoning like home mixed Emeril's Essence (has the salt, cayenne, etc), you can cut out most spices on this recipe. 3) Use a package of pre-sliced bella mushrooms. 4)Half & Half with a T of cornstarch will cut fat. 5) I don't care for bell peppers or lemon pepper, and it's beautiful without it. Now to cook: a) melt butter, throw in chicken, mushrooms, and green onion. Then sprinkle Essence and mix. b) pour over 3 cups of half and half with a T of cornstarch, add Basil, and bring to a simmer. That's it. You can taste to see if you want to add salt, but you should be done if the creole/cajun seasoning is right. Let it simmer and reduce while you cook the pasta. Mix it all together and serve. Son said it was one of the best dishes I've made.
