Cajun Seasoning

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

2 chicken breasts, sliced

1 pound cooked andouille sausage

4 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 bell peppers, diced

1 medium onion, diced

6 cups milk (whole preferred)

1 pound fettuccine pasta, uncooked

¾ cup parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

3 tablespoons chopped parsley, plus more for serving


# In a small bowl, combine all spices for the cajun seasoning and mix together. Set aside. Store any extra in an airtight container for future use.

# In a heavy bottom pot (such as a Dutch oven), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.

# Add the sliced chicken and 2½ tablespoons of the prepared cajun seasoning.

# Add the andouille sausage and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 4-5 minutes.

# Remove the meat from the pot and add the remaining olive oil.

# Add the diced peppers and onions and cook until the onions are transparent and softened, about 5 minutes.

# Add the milk and stir so that the seasoning is incorporated into the liquid.

# Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil.

# Add the uncooked fettuccine, stirring constantly until the noodles are al dente, about 10 minutes.

# On low heat, add the meat back in and stir so that it’s evenly incorporated.

# Add the cheese and parsley, and stir. Remove from the heat.
