I’m sharing some of our favorite Cajun-style recipes this week in honor of Mardi Gras. This Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Alfredo was 5 stars! ???????????????????? The best part is that everything cooked in the slow cooker – even the pasta. We both absolutely LOVED this!!!
I used chicken thighs in this Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Alfredo. Chicken Legs loves chicken thighs and they add more flavor to the dish. We also added a can of artichoke hearts and some chopped tomatoes. Seriously delicious. We had leftovers for lunch and it was just as good reheated!
Feel free to adjust the cajun/creole seasoning up or down according to your personal preferences. I usually use Tony Chachere Creole Seasoning. I find it in the spice isle at the grocery store.

Made this tonight and whole family loved it!!!
Yay!! So glad it was a hit!
Do you think chicken breast would work? (My husband is the opposite of yours…he doesn't like dark meat:)
I think it would be fine. I don't really like chicken thighs and this was really good.
