A Flavorful Start

To begin, grab a big pot and fill it with water. Don’t forget to generously salt it because nobody wants bland pasta! While the water comes to a boil, let’s get our chicken prepped.

The Power of Garlic

This recipe calls for three cloves of garlic, but let’s take it up a notch and use eight cloves for that extra flavor punch. Mince the garlic and set it aside. Trust me, fresh garlic is the way to go.

Chicken, Chicken, and More Chicken

We want our Cajun Alfredo sauce to be packed with chicken goodness, so let’s double the amount. Use a pound of chicken breasts, but feel free to add more if you want an extra hearty dish. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and pan fry it until it’s golden and cooked through.

The Magic of Alfredo

Now it’s time to reveal the heartwarming story behind Alfredo sauce. Legend has it that Alfredo Di Lelio created this dish for his pregnant wife who needed something nourishing and easy to digest. The original recipe consisted of fettuccine, fresh butter, and Parmesan cheese. The Americanized version includes cream for that rich and indulgent flavor.

Creamy Goodness

In a pan, melt one tablespoon of butter and add two tablespoons of olive oil. Cook the chicken in batches until it’s golden and cooked through. Now, let’s talk about the star of the show – the sauce.

The Creamy Cajun Sauce

In the same pan, melt half a cup of butter and add two cups of heavy cream. Don’t forget to add the minced garlic for that intense flavor. Let the sauce simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. This is where the magic happens.

The Cheesy Finale

Grate some Parmesan cheese and gradually whisk it into the sauce. Keep whisking until the cheese is fully melted and the sauce is thick and creamy. Remember to use finely grated Parmesan to ensure a smooth and silky sauce.

Bringing It All Together

Slice the cooked chicken and add it to the sauce. Cook your fettuccine according to the package instructions and drain it, reserving a cup of the pasta water. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss it to coat. If the sauce thickens, use the pasta water to loosen it up and bring back that silky texture.

Time to Indulge

Finish off this delectable dish with a sprinkle of parsley. Now, take a moment to admire your creation. The Cajun Alfredo sauce is cheesy, garlicky, and downright delicious. It’s hard to believe that something so creamy can feel light and refreshing. Trust me, you need to try this recipe.
