    Turned out excellent. I added less than the receipt required of the Cajun seasoning because I don’t like things too spicy. Next time I will add a bit more. Will make again.

    It was good definitely will fix it again will add more cheese to make thicker maybe different brand of Parmesan chicken was great too

    Turned out great. I added A LOT more spices to make it more ‘Cajun-y’ since my husband likes spicy food. I also added smoked chicken sausage and it was by far the best pasta I’ve ever made and wayyyyy better than Chili’s or Applebee’s

    Love it and it’s so easy!
    Yummy. Cajun seasoning gave it a kick but the sauce calmed it down. Added mushrooms and spinach. (Other pics are my sisters versions)

    Excellent recipe, We just loved it. Easy to cook. I cooked the chicken in the oven for 25 minutes. And I used light cream instead of heavy cream.
