  1. Slightly moisten chicken with water. In a large bag, shake the chicken with the Cajun seasoning until the chicken is evenly coated.
  2. Saute the chicken in 2 tbsp butter.
  3. When the chicken is halfway done, combine the cream 2 tbsp butter, and seasonings in a separate skillet over medium heat. Watch carefully to prevent it from boiling over.
