Angry Chicken

"Got this recipe from a friend of mine, just because the name was funny. When I went to make it, I thought I had made a mistake in writing down the amount of cajun seasoning, so I called her to make sure. She said, "of course it's right. That's why the chicken is angry!". Well, it turned out really good, so I hope you like it, too. Don't be afraid of the spice - it's really not very hot."

Ready In:




  • Season chicken with salt and pepper; grill or cook in a skillet.
  • Sautee the mushrooms in butter or oil until just done.
  • For the sauce: Combine garlic and wine.
  • Cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes to reduce by half.
  • Add cream and increase heat to bring to a low boil.
  • Reduce heat to simmer and add cajun seasoning. (Be careful if you use a different brand of Cajun Seasoning - I use McCormick's and it doesn't seem to be too salty)
  • Simmer 10-15 minutes, add cheeses until smooth.
  • Add in chicken and mushrooms over low heat.
  • You can add 1 pound of pasta (cooked) and toss to coat with the sauce, or you can serve the chicken with the sauce over a bed of rice.

  1. This recipe is SO GOOD! I could not believe that I made it. I have been looking for something that looks elegant, but easy and practical to make for a family of five. My family loved it. It tasted like we were eating out at a nice resturant!
  2. This delicious was absolutely fabulous. The only thing I would do is reduce the Cajun Seasoning a bit.
  3. This has become a family favorite! We love the spice! I have made it for friends and everyone comments how it tastes like it should be from a restaurant.
  4. This chicken wasn't just angry, it was furious! I will make this again but use less cajun seasoning. Behind the intense heat was a very nice flavor. I think this would be great with shrimp as well.
  5. Great recipe!!! My 13yr old DS asked if he could find a recipe for dinner and this is what he came up with. It was very very good!!! I need to get some better cajun spice - the store had a small selection, but will make this one again!


I live just outside of Madison, Wisconsin in the wonderful midwest. The seasons here are great, and the winter offers up some wonderful skiing opportunities. Also, I'm a Green Bay Packer fan, so getting together for tailgating parties are something I look forward to. I grew up right here, and am an only child. My mom was (is) a wonderful cook - except for meatloaf... I can't stand the stuff to this day!! She never seemed to work off of recipes, so I don't have much in writing that was passed down to me. I've become somewhat of a 'messy' cook - I throw in things without exact measuring, and I take up all available counter space when I make dinner - no matter how simple it is! My husband and I have no children, so I usually wind up with lots of leftovers... I haven't yet mastered the art of cooking for two. :)
