One Pot Wonder Cajun Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Preparation 5 mins Cook Time 20 mins Serves 4     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size chunks
  • 2 tsp. Cajun seasoning (I used Weber N’Orleans Cajun)
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 8 oz. dried fettuccini pasta (half of a 1 pound box)
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Add the oil to a large pot (or large high sided skillet). Place over medium-high heat for two minutes. Add the chicken and the Cajun seasoning. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic. Cook 1 minute, stirring often.
  2. Add the broth and milk. Break the pasta in half and add it to the pot. Cover and bring to a rapid, rolling boil, stirring occasionally. *Note: Watch the pot carefully during the beginning of the cooking process as milk tends to boil over easily.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the pasta simmer, covered, for 8-13 minutes. Stir every 2-3 minutes to prevent sticking. Cook until there is ¼ to ½ inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat. Stir in the parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
