  • Summary

    Spicy Cajun seasoned chicken is nicely tempered atop a bed of rich and creamy fettuccine Alfredo.

    Ingredients

    • 4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lbs.)
    • 1 1/2 Tbs. Cajun blackening spice (like Paul Prudhomme’s brand)

    • 1/4 C. dry white wine (or chicken broth)
    • 1 1/2 C. heavy cream (or half-and-half)
    • 1 1/2 C. good quality, freshly grated Italian cheeses (I like a blend of Asiago, Parmesan, and Fontina.)
    • 3 oz. herbed goat cheese, crumbled
    • 1 tsp. kosher salt (or more, to taste)
    • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper (or more, to taste)
