Flavorful (just as the Cajuns can make it), creamy tomato sauce with chicken over noodles or rice! Really simple to prepare, just requires attention.


  • 2 lbs boneless chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced fine
  • 2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
  • 1 (16 oz) can stewed tomatoes with onion and sweet pepper
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
  • 1 (8 oz) can mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt, black pepper, red pepper, garlic powder to taste
  • Fettuccini noodles
  • Parmesan cheese, grated


Step 1

Season chicken breasts and (cut into strips). Dredge in the flour (seasoned to taste). Brown in olive oil, and remove to drain on a paper toweled plate.

Step 2

Add remaining flour to oil and lightly brown to make a light roux. Add onions, bell pepper and garlic and simmer until wilted. Add stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and mushrooms. Add cooked chicken, chicken broth, basil and bay leaves.

Step 3

Season to taste with salt, black pepper, red pepper and garlic powder. Cover and simmer for about a half hour, stir occasionally.

Serve over fettuccine noodles with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top with a green salad and toasted garlic French bread on the side. Ces't ce bon!
