    Cajun-Creole-Carribean Chicken w/ Penne

  • 5 large cloves garlic fresh herbs from the garden or the grocer: marjoram, oregano, thyme, savory basil around 3/4 of a teaspoon - a teaspoon each of the small leafed plants, 3 -4 leaves of the larger leafed plants
  • 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green pepper
  • 1 Cup Red Onion
  • Shallots -- a few, (optional)
  • Poblano Chilis (though probably nothing spicier) if you have those
  • 2 Cups Diced Tomatoes -- (1 to 2 cups)
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 Bottle White Wine- Chardonnay, or Sauvignon Blanc
  • Paul Prudhome's Cajun Seasoning
  • Louisiana Blackened Fish Seasoning
  • Paul Prudhomme's Blackened Steak Seasoning
  • Pam Olive Oil Spray or Clarified butter
  • a pinch or so garam masala
  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • Penne Pasta
  • 1/4 stick Butter
  • Get your outside grill going and put the Dear Husband to work....

    Mince up the garlic and herbs in a mini food processor if you have one, but if not, mince finely. Dice all the peppers, onion and Tomato Saute all of these ingredients in Olive oil for awhile, cooking down with white wine as soon as you start to loose moisture, just keep adding white wine...

    While doing this, sprinkle in Paul Prudhomme's cajun seasoning to your desired intensity, *warning - Flavors will soritize, don't do it all at ONCE!*, some Blackened Fish cajun seasoning, and I added about 1/2 teaspoon garam masala.

    On a low heat, keep cooking down with the wine, adding salt and pepper and the seasonings as you go... I did this about an hour to an hour and a half.

    Spray Chicken Breasts with Pam Olive Oil spray or brush with clarified butter and sprinkle each breast with the blackening seasoning.

    As soon as the Grill is up to speed, about an 45 to an hour into this, put breasts on the grill and cook through. When you put the chicken on, heat a pot of water to boiling for the Penne.

    Take chicken off the grill, and slice, adding it to the pepper saute which you have on a low simmer....toss with mixture in the pan and simmer until penne is ready, about 5 minutes... in this time add the butter to thicken the sauce.

    Drain Pasta, mix pepper/chicken combination in with it and toss and serve.

    Serve with a salad or bread with olive oil and Enjoy!
