  3. To a shallow rimmed pan add oil. Let the pan heat up then place the chicken in the pan. Cook 4-5 minutes then flip. Cook 4-5 additional minutes depending on the thickness of the cut.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, add the fettucini to a pot and boil according to package directions. Drain and reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water for the sauce.

  6. Once the chicken has cooked, remove and place on a cutting board. Slice the chicken.

  9. Next, add the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and 1 Tbs Cajun seasoning.
