Absolutely delicious. I am not a fan of Cajun food and I’m not crazy about any dish that is too spicy. But this is not at all like that. This is restaurant quality dish with tender bites of chicken in a creamy incredible thick sauce with just a touch of seasoning to give it the right blend. You will love this recipe!
Blackened Chicken Alfredo
1 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon Zatarain’s blackened seasoning
2 cups heavy whipping cream
4 cups penne pasta, cooked and drained well
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
¼ cup fresh parsley
Lay out chicken breasts on a plate and brush with melted butter. Then season to taste with salt, pepper, and blackened seasoning.
Melt butter and olive
oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add seasoned chicken
to skillet and fry 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet and transfer
to a plate. Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes and set aside. You can also grill chicken if desired.
In the same skillet,
add garlic and cook, stirring constantly until it just starts to brown. Watch
it as garlic burns easily. Add the cream, and stir
until it begins to thicken.
Add the cooked pasta, stirring until evenly mixed. Add in the cubed chicken and Parmesan cheese stirring until cheese melts and pasta is coated with the sauce. Pour entire mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese all over the top and bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Sprinkle on parsley and serve.
