I love Cajun blackened chicken in recipes and I love chicken Alfredo…
its just a “win-win” situation when these two amazing worlds collide!
Dredge each chicken breast in the blackening spice mixture…
being sure to fully cover each chicken breast…
Heat your iron skillet until it is smoking hot…
sear each side of each breast 2-3 minutes per side…
Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet or baking pan and place in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes…
Remove from oven and slice each breast like this…
You will have a platter of deliciousness when all is said and done…but wait…there’s more to the story…this beautiful story…
To a large skillet add olive oil and the minced garlic…
lightly brown for 2-3 minutes…
stir in the wine and heavy cream…
bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce is reduced by half…
Then add the Parmesan and stir until smooth and melted…
Add the tomatoes, mushrooms and pasta…
Toss it until all combined…
Place the chicken on top and thoroughly enjoy…
