Mind-Blowing Blackened Chicken Alfredo

For years I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to eat burnt food. Really. And then one day middle son, Zac, set me straight. It’s a mixture of seasonings that when seared onto the meat, caramelizes in such a way that it looks like it’s burned. But I’m here to tell you, it’s the best way ever to eat chicken or Buttery Blackened Shrimp!  My first try at making this Blackened Chicken Alfredo was a mind-blowing, life-altering success. Trust me on this. 👌Blackened Chicken Alfredo | Culinary Craftiness

Depending on how many pieces of meat you’re browning, you can cut my recipe in half or double it. I’m usually cooking up a lot more food than needed ’cause we LOVE leftovers. Now that the three boys are either out on their own or always on the run, Jimmie and I eat a lot of salads with a little entree. We try to add some fresh roasted veggies, but don’t want to get burned out so we’ll switch things up with a rice or complex carb every now and then. I’m trying to avoid carbohydrates as much as possible, but once or twice a week keeps the cravings at bay.

All it takes is one stick of butter, one pint of heavy whipping cream, and 8 oz. of your favorite shredded parmesan cheese. Melt the butter in a sauce pan. Add the cream and let simmer for 5-6 minutes. Whisk in the parmesan cheese until smooth and melted. Salt and pepper to taste.

I picked up Coburn Farms brand cheese and cream from Save A Lot and found we love it best. All of their real milk dairy products are delicious. Their 1% cottage cheese is Jimmie’s favorite now, closely followed by Aldi’s 4%, then Walmart’s Great Value 4%.Blackened Chicken Alfredo - Blackened is a seasoning, not burnt meat! | Culinary Craftiness

Blackened Seasoning Recipe

There are many recipe sites with blackened seasoning recipes. Experiment with the herbs and spices you like best. I’m not a fan of big pieces of stemmy herbs so I try to make sure I’ve finely ground all in my coffee grinder.
