Creamy Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pasta

If you love a classic Alfredo pasta,

I was verrrrrry happy with this dish when I made it! So excited, in fact, that I decided to push the other recipe I had planned for posting in favour of this one 😍

I don’t LOVE creamy pasta dishes usually, but the cajun spice adds enough of a kick to lift it from the depths of uber creaminess and into the heights of damnnn this is good!

Cajun Chicken Alfredo

The chicken breasts are from @falleninchfarm. Like anything from a butcher, the quality is significantly superior to supermarket meat.
