    Absolutely loved this, even my kid who doesn’t like spice enjoyed it. Even the neighbors asked what we were making for dinner it smelt so good!! The recipe doesn’t need adjusted just allow the dish to sit for about 5-10 minutes and the extra liquid soaks into the pasta.

    this recipe turned out pretty good. I had to add a little bit of Cajun flare to make it just how I like it (fresh holy Trinity). I also added a quarter cup extra cream and two tablespoons of cornstarch.

    I enjoyed this! I didn’t have sausage so missed that out. I also read the reviews about it being too salty so I added just a cup of water rather than chicken broth, and I added some cornflour to thicken the sauce. Thank you!

    Yum! Lots of flavor and was a hit
    Soo good! Have had many compliments on this dish and people are asking for the recipe. Some notes just make sure you don’t add too much salt especially if your broth and butter has salt. Also the pasta may look watery but it isn’t and it thickens up nicely the next day as well!

    The sauce doesn’t thicken up very much, but totally not a big deal. This turned out delicious! I added broccoli and left out the chicken:)

    Sauce needs to be a bit thicker but that could have been user error. Good recipe. I punched it up a bit with more sausage and smoked paprika. I also made my own Cajun spice mix for the chicken and cooked it a bit again after cutting it up.

    very good! I did not add the mushrooms since we don't like them. Couldn't find any fresh parmesan so i had to settle for the bottle of parmesan. I also bought cajun flavored sausage, turned out spicy but still very good. Husband gave it a 9 out of 10! Will be making again.

    I don’t usually leave reviews good or bad, but this dish was worth it. It was amazing! I used light cream instead of heavy cream, did not add salt (bc I believe the butter I used was salted) & instead of sausage and mushrooms I added shrimp, red bell pepper, and a little spinach. The sauce was a little too runny for my liking so I added a little flour water mix to thicken it. I will definitely make this dish again, great recipe!

    I added some shrimp in addition to the chicken and sausage I couldn’t locate any andouille sausage, which is what I really wanted to use but it wasn’t bad. I do wish there was just a tad bit more spice, but the flavors are still great
