I started out melting butter and olive oil.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I did not try this before using it. I figured, What the hey, I'll probably love it. This may have been a big mistake.
Then added a cup of cream and a tablespoon of the seasoning and salt. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER. I should not have added salt. What am I doing copying Emeril? He should not be emulated; clearly he likes things a bit spicier than I do.
I added the chicken and pasta and tossed to coat. I was getting really excited and I was starving; it was nearly 9:30 before I sat down to eat.
I sat down and twirled pasta with my fork and took a big first bite. It was SO SALTY. Like, I cringed. I'm not sure where I went wrong, but next time I'll be much more conservative with seasoning; I think a little bit of the Cajun seasoning goes a long way.
I was just so disappointed because it was the first time I've made this kind of mistake. I suffered through about half of the pasta, cringing and gulping water in between bites, but I wasn't able to finish it. It was just way too hard. Disasters!
