Creamy Cajun Sauce is a quick and easy sauce that takes your regular meals from bland to fantastic!
Creamy Cajun Sauce is a favorite at my house. We love it with breaded chicken, over fish like tilapia or cod, and especially with Cajun Meatballs.
It only takes about 15 minutes to make creamy Cajun sauce, which makes it one of my go-to recipes on busy nights. I can cook up a pot of pasta and heat some green beans while the sauce is cooking, and have a flavorful meal on the table in 15 minutes.
I love how versatile this sauce is. We haven’t disliked it on anything we’ve tried so far. In fact, my kids love the taste of it so much that I keep thinking I need to turn it into a soup recipe! (If I do, I’ll be sure to share it here!)
To make Creamy Cajun Sauce, you’ll need Cajun seasoning. I always make my own, so here’s the Cajun Seasoning recipe. It is a very simple recipe. No need to buy Cajun seasoning, since you can whip up this recipe with pantry staples in less than 5 minutes.
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 3 Tbsp. flour
- 2-3 tsp. Cajun seasoning**
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- In a large skillet (I use my Lodge cast iron skillet), melt butter. Sauté onion and bell pepper in melted butter for about 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
- Add flour and Cajun seasoning, and stir until bubbly. If mixture is extremely thick, just stir and cook about 1 minute.
- While whisking, slowly add broth.
- Bring to a boil and boil one minute.
- Remove from heat.
- Add heavy cream and stir until combined.
**3 tsp. of Cajun seasoning will give you a spicy sauce. For a milder sauce, reduce the amount.
