How to Make Creamy Cajun with Zoodles

Step-by-Step

  1. Put all cajun seasoning ingredients into a mini blender, grind until powder consistency. Omit this step if you don't mind the texture of the oregano and thyme. Personally, I don't like it getting caught in my teeth. You can also use a favorite pre-made cajun seasoning mix instead of making your own.
  2. Heat oven to 250. Place paper towel on a rimmed baking sheet. Make zucchini into zoodles. I use an Ontel Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Slicer. Place zoodles on paper towel and sprinkle 1/2 t salt over the top. Bake at 250 for 20 minutes.
  3. Coat the chicken pieces with the cajun seasoning and set aside.
  4. Heat butter in cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onions, and garlic. Saute about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken, sear on all sides, about 3 minutes. Add sausage and cook another 2 minutes. Add the broth and use a whisk to scrape the bits from the bottom. Mix in the cheese, then add the cream. Simmer on low 5 minutes.
  6. Serve over zoodles.
