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
