I cut up the chicken and sausage into small pieces, I use mild Italien sausage but you could use whatever you like as long as they get along with the spices, that is the sausage.
In a cooking pot I add olive oil and then I throw in the chicken first cooking it for about 10 mins, stirring, then I add the sausage and cook it for another 10 minutes, making sure the chicken is lightly brown, I add pepper a dash while it is all cooking, then I add 2 cloves of garlic, but I mince it up first, I continue to cook and making sure chicken looks cooked. In the meantime, I put on a pot with water and bring to boil so it will be ready to cook my pasta in. Next, I add to the pot with chicken 2 cups of chicken broth, a cup and 1/4 of cream and 2 tablespoons of cajun spice. While this is cooking I add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, about 10 mins. While pasta is cooking I add the broccoli pieces to the pot with chicken and I shredded up parmesan cheese about 3 cups and I get parsley leafs and stocks minced up but not too fine, a handful. Once pasta is ready, I drain the pasta but keeping pasta water around in case you need it. Add pasta to the sauce, throw in cheese, mixing well until all mixed in. If it seems to dry then add some of the pasta water to the pot continue to stir. There should be a bit of liquid but not to running though. When ready to serve, throw the parsley into the mix, stirring well and then serve. I usually serve this with a salad and bread.
