The Best Creamy Cajun Smothered chicken wings

Creamy Cajun smothered chicken wings are a flavorful and indulgent dish that combines the heat of Cajun spices with a rich and creamy sauce. Here's a recipe for the best creamy Cajun smothered chicken wings:


  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. This will help the chicken wings cook evenly and become crispy.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with Cajun seasoning and olive oil until they are evenly coated.
  3. Arrange the chicken wings on the wire rack and bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  4. In a large skillet or sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  5. Pour in the heavy cream and chicken broth, stirring well to combine with the butter and garlic. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  6. Add the paprika, dried thyme, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper to the creamy sauce. Stir well to incorporate the spices.
  7. Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for 10-15 minutes, allowing it to thicken slightly. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  8. Once the chicken wings are cooked, transfer them to the skillet with the creamy Cajun sauce. Toss the wings in the sauce until they are well coated.
  9. Continue cooking the chicken wings in the sauce for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  10. Remove from heat and transfer the smothered chicken wings to a serving platter. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

Serve the creamy Cajun smothered chicken wings as a delicious appetizer or main dish. They pair well with rice, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad. The combination of the crispy chicken wings and the rich and creamy Cajun sauce is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Enjoy!
