Recipe Notes:

For this recipe, we didn’t include any noodle or noodle replacements in the nutrition facts, because there are so many different options to choose from. We used spaghetti squash for our noodle base, but you could use whatever you’d like.

Spices: The spice mix we use for this recipe is our go-to, but you could certainly use any cajun spice blend you like. We premix a batch ahead of time, then it’s always ready to go in our pantry. Just be aware that some store bought blends may have a much higher sodium content, so this can affect the flavor. We’d also like to mention that this seasoning blend is quite spicy, as we prefer most of our food to be, so keep this in mind when making your blend.

Let’s Make It! ​


To start, season your chicken breasts liberally with your cajun seasoning blend. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat, and melt 2 tbsp of butter. Sear your chicken over medium high heat, until it’s cooked thru and reaches an internal temperature of 165F. Once cooked thru, remove from the skillet and set aside. Don’t drain or remove any of the drippings.

Reduce the heat to medium, and add 2 more tbsp of butter (or the rest) of it to your cast iron. Add in your minced garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Being careful not to let your garlic burn, add in your chicken broth and your heavy whipping cream.

Stir in your parsley, and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle in more cajun seasoning, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until your cheese has melted and it forms a sauce. Add in your noodles of choice to warm them up.

Cut your chicken into pieces, and add to the skillet. Garnish with more parsley and parmesan cheese.

Serve and enjoy!
