Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Total Time

This dish can be made two ways: 1. The easy weeknight throw together way, 2. The good for company restaurant style way. I thought this way extremely spicy, my husband thought it was perfect so, spice to taste. Serve with salad and bread! I made the cream cheese a range, I prefer it with less but have added more to cut the spiciness when making it for both of us, so taste and add as desired.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare noodles according to package directions and set aside.
  2. Trim chicken breasts of fat and cut into bite sized pieces. (If doing restaurant style you may prefer to leave the breasts whole or cut into strips, up to you).
  3. Saute chicken in butter. If you are doing restaurant style us only 1-2 tbsp of butter, reserving the rest.
  4. Add cajun seasoning to chicken while it sautes, adding the ingredients to taste, you can always add more later.
  5. For family style, once chicken is cooked, stir in half and half or cream and cheeses. Bring to a low boil and stir until melted and creamy. Toss with pasta and serve!
  6. For restaurant style, melt remaining butter in a medium sauce pan, add half and half or cream. Melt in cheeses, stir to combine. Toss with pasta and place chicken on top.

This is a truly yummy recipe. The only things I did differently was to deglaze with white wine before adding the cream, and then I added about 1/2 cup chopped scallions. WONDERFUL!

Sooooooo very, very GOOD! We had this over cheese ravioli, only used 4 oz of cream cheese. We thought the spice was wonderful, as we love spicy food. I actually forgot the parmesan, and honestly we didn't miss it. I added mushrooms, red onion, and omitted the onion powder (personal preference). Thanks for posting. :)

my brother-in-law first made this for me, and i loved it. now i make this often for my family, and we all love it, even my 4yo. i make as directed and it's always great. note of advice: stir the sauce a lot, don't leave it alone for too long or it's not as smooth. overall GREAT!
