Cajun Chicken Pasta

So tonight I made a new recipe that I thought was worth sharing. I got it from

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 tsp. cajun seasoning
4 tbsp. butter
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 pkg. penne pasta
Roma tomatoes, chopped
Shredded parmesan cheese
Green onions
Cook pasta according to package directions.  Place chicken in a large Ziplock baggie.  Add cajun seasoning, seal baggie, and shake it up.   In a large skillet, saute chicken in 2 tablespoons of butter, turning when necessary. While chicken is cooking, use another pot and combine cream with 2 tablespoons of butter and remaining seasonings {salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon pepper}. 
When the cream mixture starts to bubble, turn off heat and pour over cooked pasta.  Toss to coat evenly.  When the chicken is all cooked, remove from heat and transfer to cutting board.  Slice chicken into strips.  Spoon pasta onto plate and top with several strips of chicken.  Top with tomatoes, green onions, and sprinkle with parmesan.
