Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Alfredo – this cajun alfredo is stacked with flavor! Prepared chicken and smoked wiener in a custom made cajun alfredo sauce.

This formula is a mix of two of my most well-known plans, One Pot Cajun Chicken Alfredo and Crockpot Chicken Alfredo. This moderate cooker adaptation is so delightful and sure to be a hit with your family. The smoked hotdog and cajun preparing flavor the chicken and alfredo sauce as it is cooking and gives the dish such countless layers of flavor!

Best of all, even the pasta cooks directly in the moderate cooker.
