Ashley's notes for this recipe:
From - I know this sounds crazy, but Applebee's has one of the best blackened chicken bowls I've ever had. Which inspired me to make my own version, and a better version at that. I made my own blackened rub, and it turned out great. Slightly spicy with all the flavor you'd expect from a blackened chicken breast. The searing seals the juices inside the chicken, and makes for a delicious dinner. A great compliment to the fettuccine Alfredo, since the Alfredo has a rich Parmesan taste

Pat the chicken breast dry with a paper towel.
Mix all the seasonings together, and pat onto the dry chicken breast on both sides.
Heat butter in a skillet, once hot add the chicken one by one and cook for 3 min each side.
After the chicken is seared, bake for an additional 30 min at 375 F.
Melt the butter over medium heat, and add minced garlic cook for 3-4 min until garlic is slightly brown.
Slowly pour the heavy cream into the butter garlic mixture.
Add the black pepper, salt, and Parmesan cheese, cook for 5-8 min or until thick. If it still looks runny after 8 min, turn the burner off and let it cool slightly on the burner. It will thicken up.
Cook pasta according to directions, and toss with Alfredo sauce.
Optional ** Add cooked broccoli and chopped tomatoes when you toss with the Alfredo sauce.
