You will love this Blackened Chicken Alfredo. It is full of flavor, quick, and easy to prepare. Magic happens in a skillet when you add pasta, heavy cream, butter, garlic, blackened, and cheese?
Blackened Chicken Alfredo Recipe – This recipe is my version of Guy Fieri’s Cajun Chicken Alfredo recipe.
This pasta dish is very creamy, and the blackened chicken kicks it up a bit with flavor. It not only feeds a crowd or starving kids until they are full, but it is also quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive. To make this recipe even quicker, I often sauté my chicken breast, seasoned with Blackening, ahead of time, and keep it on hand in the refrigerator. You can season the chicken and then bake it in the oven too. If I do not have any chicken already cooked, and I am in a hurry, I chop the chicken into bite-size pieces when it is raw, add the blackening seasoning and then sauté it. The chicken will cook extremely fast this week. You can also use this blackened chicken for many other recipes, including a fast and easy quesadilla.
