    Pressure-Cooker Cajun Chicken Alfredo

    1 review

    This recipe is a true comfort food! Cajun spice adds a nice heat to the creamy Alfredo sauce. And nothing beats having to clean only one pot. Add more or less seasoning depending on your preferred spice level. This recipe would also be tasty with shrimp or smoked sausage. —Jennifer Stowell, Deep River, Iowa
