Cajun Chicken Alfredo

I want to rant so bad today but I won't because whenever you say something on the internet it becomes public property and most of the public is such an ass that they will say whatever they feel like regardless of your situation.

So I keep most of my personal life and stuff to myself because people usually don't understand shit until they have to go through it themselves.

Anyway, once in a while there comes a pasta recipe that is extremely easy to make and very delicious to feast on that you all of a sudden forget all of  your problems are willing to ignore your strict diet routine.

Cajun Chicken Alfredo is one of those pastas.

Yes you heard it right. Cajun seasoning is an all purpose seasoning which is used in a lot of foreign recipes. I bought it from Green Valley (Mall of Lahore) but you can also get it from Al-Fatah and essajee's if you are from Lahore.

Even if you can't find Cajun seasoning you can make it at home by compiling the following things:

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder (optional)

2 1/2 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 1/4 teaspoons dried oregano

1 1/4 teaspoons dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Just combine all of these ingredients and you'll get your Cajun spice mix.

Now let's get down to our recipe.


4 tablespoons olive oil

4 cloves garlic, chopped

450 grams of penne pasta

4 cooked chicken sausages, sliced

500 grams chicken breasts, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon cajun seasoning

Salt 1 tablespoon

400 grams cream

1/2 cup of milk

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup grated mozzarella

1/4 cup parsley/coriander

Boil the pasta as per the directions of the packet.

Meanwhile the pasta is being boiled you can finely chop your coriander/parsley and garlic cloves.

Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water. Keep it aside.

How on medium head add olive oil to a pan.

Add chicken, sausage slices and chopped garlic.

Cook until chicken is cooked and keep stirring so the garlic doesn't burn.

When the chicken loses the pink color add salt and cajun seasoning.

Mix and cook it with the pasta.

When the chicken is completely cooked and the spice mix has blended in, turn the heat to low and add the cream and milk.

Now add the grated parmesan, mozzarella and chopped coriander.

Give everything a good mix.

Add the pasta to the white sauce with chicken and mix it well until the pasta is completely coated. 

This is it.

Sprinkle some more chopped coriander over it and Cajun seasoning. Enjoy the creamy treat and get lost in the rich Cajun flavor.
