I am so happy to share this new one-pot recipe with you! This One-Pot Cajun Chicken and Andouille Sausage Alfredo is one of my family’s new favorite meals! It is such a simple meal to make but assume that means it is simple in flavor. This meal is absolutely PACKED with flavor. Tender chunks of chicken with smoky pieces of sausage in a rich and delicious homemade Alfredo sauce. Takes less than 30 minutes to make is and AMAZING for leftovers!

Let’s get started foodies!
In a large pot, make sure you have a lid that fits. Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to the pot. Once the chicken has started to brown, stir the sausage and let it brown as well. Then stir in fresh garlic. I wait to add the garlic until this step so it doesn’t burn while the chicken and sausage are cooking.
Add chicken broth, heavy cream, uncooked pasta and cajun seasoning to the pot and bring to a simmer. (Slap Ya Mama is what I recommend) Here is the link below.
For the best consistency and results, make sure to use heave cream versus whipping cream or light cream.
Once the pot is simmering, cover and turn heat to low. Let cook covered for 15-20 minutes, until pasta is tender.
Remove pot from heat and stir in freshly grated parmesan cheese. I grate my parmesan using a microplane so it melts smoothly into the sauce. If you use store-bought shredded cheese, you may have to adjust and use less in the recipe. Pre-shredded cheese has additives that keep the shreds from sticking together in the bag or container and those tend to over thicken the sauce or keep the cheese from melting smoothly. (I’ve learned this from experience) This is the one we have – its a Zester & Grater. Its a Microplane which I recommend, its the only one I will use.
Stir the freshly chopped flat leaf parsley and sprinkle with additional seasoning to taste.
You are going to love this rich and flavorful pasta! Its one of my new favorites. For leftovers, reheat slowly over a low flame and add more chicken broth and cream as needed to keep sauce from separating.
