How to make One Pot Cajun Chicken Alfredo
Step 1: Heat the olive oil in a large cooking pot with a lid over medium-high heat.
Step 2: While the oil is heating, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken into the hot oil and sear. Then, add the sausage and cook further until lightly browned.
Step 3: Add the garlic, stir, and cook for another 2 minutes.
Step 4: Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Then, add the dried pasta and Cajun seasoning. Stir well and bring the mixture to a simmer on medium-high heat.
Step 5: Adjust the heat to low and cook for additional 15 to 20 minutes, covered, until the pasta is tender.
Step 6: Take the pot off the heat when done and gradually whisk in the Parmesan cheese.
Step 7: Add the chopped parsley and stir. To taste, sprinkle with extra Cajun seasoning.
