Ingredients
  • Cajun Chicken Alfredo
  • 4 (5-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup blackening spice (recommended: Paul Prudhomme's Chicken)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup roughly chopped marinated sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound cooked fettuccine
  • ½ cup sliced scallions
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Dredge the chicken breasts in the blackening spice and place in a cast iron skillet over very high heat. Blacken both sides of the chicken and place in the oven for 10 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Slice in strips on the bias and set aside.
  3. In a saute pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. Add garlic and lightly caramelize. Then add the sun-dried tomatoes and the chicken slices. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add the heavy cream, increase the heat to a simmer, and reduce the cream sauce by half.
  4. When the cream sauce is to desired consistency, stir in ½ cup Parmesan, salt, pepper, and pasta.
  5. Nest the pasta on large rimmed plates, pour sauce over pasta, and garnish with scallions and the remaining ¼ cup Parmesan.
