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
Blue Ribbon Recipe
The flavors of creamy Italian Fettuccine Alfredo meet blackened Cajun-spiced chicken in this recipe. It's a wonderful marriage of flavors.

It's full of spice and flavor and forms a nice crust on the chicken. A tasty dish to prepare for any occasion from a casual Tuesday night to a special anniversary.

Test Kitchen Tips
This recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne. That is a lot if you do not like spicy. We suggest cutting it down according to how spicy you like things.
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. 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.
