From Ashleyscooking.com - 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. The pasta is coated with just the right amount of creamy Alfredo sauce. The seasoning on the chicken breast is where this recipe gets crazy. 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.

Note: 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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
