How to make Cajun chicken

I like to slice chicken breasts lengthwise to make them into thinner cutlets. They then cook faster and more evenly so they stay tender. To make the chicken extra flavorful, I season it with garlic powder, some of the Cajun seasoning (the rest goes in the sauce), and salt & pepper, coat it in flour and fry it to a golden brown.

I then make the sauce by adding the garlic, chicken broth, and sun-dried tomatoes to the pan, followed by the cream and Cajun seasoning. Add the chicken back in and the sauce thickens up after a few minutes. Delicious.

This recipe has a bit of kick, but I wouldn’t describe it as too spicy or anything. If you do want to make it spicy, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes.

If you’re wondering what’s in Cajun seasoning, it usually contains garlic powder, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes, and salt. It’s easy enough to make your own (try this homemade Cajun seasoning), but I usually use Tony Chachere’s brand (I’ve worked with them in the past, but this post is not sponsored… I just really like the stuff and buy it whenever I visit anywhere that sells it!). For this particular recipe, I used a salt-free Cajun seasoning because many Cajun seasonings are quite salty and could ruin the recipe with the amount that’s required.

What to serve with creamy Cajun chicken

Serve it over pasta, or with rice or potatoes (try my Crockpot mashed potatoes). I’d also serve it with a vegetable or a side salad because it is quite rich.
