Cajun Chicken & Sausage Alfredo

Last night, I decided to try out a new recipe that I found. It’s called One Pot Cajun Chicken & Sausage Alfredo. I don’t cook as often as I would like (other than mac and cheese and ramen), but occasionally I like to find a good recipe and give it a try. This Alfredo was very creamy and flavorful – although, I wish I would have added more Cajun seasoning to give it a little more of a kick! Here is the recipe:

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound of chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 14 oz smoked sausage, sliced on the diagonal
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 pound of dried penne pasta
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning plus more for topping
  • 4 oz of freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of Italian flat leaf parsley, minced

Instructions

  1. Start with a large covered cooking pot.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper and brown in olive oil over medium high heat.
  3. Add sausage and continue to cook until lightly browned.
  4. Stir in garlic and cook for for about two minutes.
  5. Add chicken broth, heavy cream, dried pasta and cajun seasoning to pot.
  6. Stir together and bring to a simmer over medium high heat.
  7. Reduce heat to low and let cook covered for 15-20 minutes, or until pasta is tender.
  8. Remove pot from heat and stir in parmesan cheese.
  9. Stir in chopped parsley and sprinkle with additional cajun seasoning to taste.
