How to make One Pot Cajun Chicken Alfredo

Step 1: Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.

Step 2: In a large cooking pot with hot olive oil, cook the chicken over medium-high heat until the chicken is brown. Then, add the sausage and cook further until the sausage is a little brown. Now, add the garlic, stir, and continue to cook for additional 2 minutes.

Step 3: To the pot, pour in the chicken broth and add the heavy cream, dried pasta, and Cajun seasoning. Stir well and bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Step 4: Adjust the heat to low and continue to cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, covered, or until the pasta is done.

Step 5: Take the pot off the heat when done and gradually stir in the Parmesan cheese.

Step 6: Before serving, stir in the chopped parsley and extra Cajun seasoning. Enjoy!
