  • 6 oz. smoked sausage (sliced into 1/4 inch pieces)

  • 8 oz. baby Bella mushrooms (sliced)

Directions

  • Pasta:Boil pasta in salty water according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • Chicken, sausage and mushrooms:Generously season chicken with salt, pepper, Cajun and Italian seasonings. Do not slice it yet – you will be cooking it whole. Slice sausage into 1/4 inch circles and slice mushrooms.
  • In a large skillet, add 1 tbsp butter and melt it over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add whole chicken breasts and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side until browned for a total of 8-10 minutes. Remove chicken onto a plate and slice into strips.
  • Add sliced sausage pieces and brown them on medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side until darker in color around the edges. Remove from the skillet onto a plate.
