I love a good alfredo, and I have to admit, I’ve never tried anything except just your regular run of the mill alfredo recipes. This Cajun Chicken Alfredo is so delicious and it’s changed my mind all together about trying different alfredo recipes!! I’ve never really used cajun spices before so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but turns out it’s a whole lot of deliciousness!!

This recipe would be delicious even without chicken so it can be made vegan if necessary or for a meatless meal.  It’s so rich and delicious, and ridiculously hard to stop eating!! Now in the recipe the amount of cayenne is less than I used, I would say add a bit at a time, to taste. I prefer mine with quite a bit of a kick but I didn’t want to overwhelm any of you, so feel free to add more cayenne than the recipe calls for, if you like.

If you choose to use a rotisserie chicken, this recipe takes under 15 minutes to throw together and it’s seriously one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had!!

Items you’ll need for this recipe: 

* Cajun Seasoning * Large Pot * Cayenne Pepper *
