How to Make Creamy Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pasta

You will need a large skillet and a large pot. The pot is to cook the pasta, everything else is done in the skillet. We love our Caraway nonstick, non-toxic, ceramic cookware. You can find it online here: Caraway Cookware.


First, cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Cook it al dente, then rinse and set aside.

Then add the olive oil to the skillet over medium-high heat.

When the oil is hot add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for 30 seconds to a minute.

Next, add the pieces of chicken and your favorite cajun seasoning. If you have homemade cajun seasoning, even better. Cook for 5-6 minutes until the chicken is almost cooked. The sides of the chicken should show no raw pink.

Then add the sausage and the ham steak to the skillet. You can use andouille chicken sausage, pork sausage, or whatever sausage you prefer. For the ham steak, you can use the prepackaged ham steak that you often find at the grocery store. If your local store doesn’t have any you can simply ask the deli counter to cut one 1/4″ slab of ham. 

Stir and cook for 5-6 minutes until the meats are cooked and combined with the Cajun creole seasoning.

Next, add the alfredo sauce. We are using a cashew-based dairy dairy-free alfredo but you can use traditional alfredo sauce or even a creamy homemade alfredo sauce if you make it. Stir to combine and allow the sauce to heat up.
