Sausage and Chicken Cajun Alfredo

Sometimes I just get in the mood for something different. Yesterday I had made some Cajun seasoning. I like to keep it on hand, because it’s just good in everything. I had found a recipe in a magazine a few years ago similar to this recipe. I just felt like it needed to be different, so I changed it to suit my own needs. I think the pasta tastes better being cooked directly in the liquid. I also find that adding the chicken makes it tastes better, but I think that what really makes it good is that homemade seasoning.

I encourage you guys to really try this recipe.  It’s so good. My boys had multiple bowls. Gotta love that!

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 cups chicken broth

2 1/2 cups of heavy cream

1 pound of dried penne pasta

1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning

6 oz of freshly shredded parmesan cheese

Dried Parsley, about 1 tablespoon

Cut chicken and sausage into bite size pieces. Sprinkle chicken with Cajun seasoning. Brown in olive oil. Add sausage and cook until lightly browned. Add chicken broth, heavy cream, pasta, and stir. Bring to boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook with the lid on until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese. Stir in parsley and additional Cajun seasoning if desired.
