Blackened Chicken Alfredo

Blackened Chicken Alfredo - pan seared blackened chicken served over garlic alfredo sauce and pasta - homemade blackened seasoning - I wanted to lick my plate!

My favorite restaurant is Hamilton's in Auburn.  I love their blackened chicken with roasted garlic alfredo.  Hamilton's closed and then reopened with all the favorites back on the menu, but I haven't had a chance to check it out.  I searched for a good replacement for the chicken alfredo and this is my favorite recipe.  I let the chicken marinate overnight and pan sear the chicken.  I usually just use a jar of ready-made alfredo sauce for a quick weeknight meal.  I might like this better than the original!

  1. Wow Stephanie, this looks really good. I've never had blackened chicken alfredo. I'm going to have to give this a try. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. My husband will love this. Can't wait to try it, it looks delish!

  3. I've done lots of grilled chicken alfredo but not blackened. I'll have to give it a shot in the cast iron skillet. It looks terrific.

  4. Chris - I love to make this in my iron skillet

  5. This looks absolutely delicious! I had never heard of this approach to alfredo, but I will definitely give this a try.

  7. Would this recipe be better cooked in a cast iron skillet vs a regular frying pan? I have a cast iron skillet and it seems to just make everything taste better

  8. Blake - I prefer a cast iron skillet, but it will work in either.

  9. I finally got to making this & it was soo yummy! I wish I would of marinated it a bit longer but 1 hour worked just fine & I can't wait to make it again! Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Thanks for this recipe! We had this last night and it was so incredibly good.

  11. I made this last night and knew it was a hit when hubby went back for 2nds...��������!! I used Ragu's Classic Alfredo sauce and boneless chicken thighs b/c they're juicier to me. I also added boiled broccoli for my veggie! I paired it all with the red lobster biscuits that come in the box! Truly a delish meal....will definitely be going in my recipe box!!! Thanks Steph!
