Cajun Stuffed Chicken with Crawfish

I love love stuffed recipes. They’re just way more fun in my eyes. My original plan for this one was to stuff the chicken with boudin (a pork & dirty rice stuffed sausage). I couldn’t find any here in Vegas, so I improvised by using a garlic chicken sausage. It still turned out so flavorful & tender! I’m still on a hunt for boudin to hopefully make this recipe again soon. You can make it with any sausage you like or the boudin. Recipe below!

Ingredients:

4 large chicken breasts

2 sausage links (or 2 boudin sausages)

3 tbsp dairy free cream cheese (or regular)

1 cup of shredded cheddar

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp old bay seasoning

1 package of thawed crawfish tails
