Creamy cajun chicken

A creamy one pan chicken dish with spice, smoke and creamy flavors paired with a cooling coleslaw

This Louisiana inspired dish is a great chicken and vegetable meal. You can use any cut of chicken but for this dish I used drumsticks. Simply cook the marinated chicken then start to build the creamy sauce in that same pan. Pair with a cooling coleslaw and enjoy this healthy easy recipe grain free!
