    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and toss with 1 tbsp of the olive oil. Set aside until ready to use.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, make the sauce. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat. Stir and cook the garlic for 1 minute. Whisk in the whipping cream, milk and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Allow the sauce to simmer over very low heat until ready to use. Do not allow the sauce to come to a boil.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, combine the breadcrumb with the 1 tbsp of the Cajun seasoning in a shallow bowl (I use a resealable bag). Coat the chicken evenly in the breadcrumb mixture.
    4. 4
      Heat the remaining 3 tbsp of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook on both sides until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Drain the chicken on paper towels and set aside.
    5. 5
      Pour the Alfredo sauce over the cooked pasta and stir in the cooked chicken. Stir in the mozzarella cheese, the remaining 1 tbsp of the Cajun seasoning (or to taste -- start with 1 tsp at a time if you're unsure) and onion salt. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
    6. 6
      Garnish with parsley.
    7. 7
      Enjoy!

      This is an easy recipe that delivers a lot of flavor for not a lot of effort! I made this exactly as posted, using 8 oz. of gemelli pasta, which really captured the creamy sauce nicely. At the very end, I only added about 1/2 T. of the Cajun seasoning and onion powder in place of the onion salt. This was the ideal amount of seasoning, in my opinion. We really enjoyed this, and look forward to making it again. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

      This has a really good flavor and it makes enough sauce for a lot more than 8 oz. of pasta. I left out the onion salt as I didn't have any. It would probably be great with canned mushrooms added. Made for New Kids on the Block cooking game.

      I make a very similar dish without the Cajun seasoning. The addition of the Cajun seasoning brings this dish to a whole new level. Yummylicious! Served mine with sauted' okra and a salad.

      Thanks for the recipe!
