Creamy Parmesan Sauce:
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1 cup chicken broth (sodium-free)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cup heavy cream
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (freshly grated for most excellent results)
sea salt (to taste)
8 oz. penne pasta
Boil pasta in salty water Drain and set aside.
Chicken, sausage, and mushrooms:
Bountifully season chicken with salt, pepper, Cajun, and Italian seasonings. Don’t slice it yet – you will be making it whole. Slice sausage into 1/5 inch rounds and slice mushrooms.
In a wide skillet, join 1 tbsp butter and blend it over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, join whole chicken breasts and bake for about 4-5 minutes on each side until cooked for a total of 8-12 minutes. Switch chicken onto a plate and slice into strips.
Combine sliced sausage pieces and cook them on medium heat for 2-4 minutes on every side till darker in color around the edges. Switch from the skillet onto a plate
Deglaze the pan with a splash of water and join 2nd tbsp of butter and sliced mushrooms into the skillet (join more butter as fine, if needed). Saute until your mushrooms should look excellent and moist, and dark. Once baked, remove them from the pan as well.
To prepare the sauce, join the remaining 1 tbsp butter to the pan, allow it to melt, and then make garlic in it until slightly browned – only for a couple of minutes. Next join chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce, and heavy cream and bring to a light simmer. Combine Cajun seasoning, paprika, and garlic powder and mix into the sauce.
Add Parmesan cheese and whisk to blend for 2-3 minutes to thicken the sauce. Taste the sauce and add salt to taste.
Combine cooked pasta into the sauce and mix in well. Next add the chicken, sausage, and mushrooms back into the pan and allow them to reheat for 2-3 minutes. Close the cover to help the heat stay in. Serve immediately!
WHAT KIND OF PASTA TO USE WITH CHICKEN?
Although I made mine using Penne pasta (like Chili’s Cajun Chicken Pasta penne dish), you can choose linguine here. Additionally, rigatoni is a popular choice to Make Cajun Chicken Pasta delicious. Also, you can change gluten-free brown rice pasta or red lentil pasta if you don’t eat grains!
WHAT KIND OF SAUSAGE TO USE IN CHICKEN PASTA?
I utilized smoked sausage in this Cajun chicken pasta recipe. First, they make the sausage and then they smoke it. They make it of ground pork, turkey, beef, or a mixture of meats. And these sausages can combine any variation of seasonings.
You may have listened to Andouille, which is another great choice of sausage to use in Cajun chicken sauce. It’s a pretty spicy sausage. They make it from smoked pork and it makes excellent sense with cajun spices!
besides Spanish chorizo, seasoned with smoked paprika. It would be a great choice and companion to Cajun chicken here as well.
