Cajun "chicken" Alfredo
Amazing! Serve with Heirloom Tomato Salad, or a nice green salad with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing, and some good, crusty bread.
"This was great! One suggestion, spray the cutlets with a little cooking spray just before dredging in blackening seasoning. It will help the seasoning adhere to the "chicken.""- Ccplady

Cajun "chicken" Alfredo Preparation
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
LIghtly oil a baking sheet, and place frozen cutlets in the oven for about 10 minutes.
Dredge the cutlets in the blackening spice and place in a cast iron skillet over very high heat (this can create a bit of smoke). Blacken both sides of the cutlets and place in the oven for 10 minutes. Slice in strips on the bias and set aside.
In a saute pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil (or oil from oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes). Add garlic and lightly caramelize. Then add the sun-dried tomatoes and the cutlet slices. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add the heavy cream, increase the heat to a simmer, and reduce the cream sauce by half.
When the cream sauce is to desired consistency, stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan, salt, pepper, and pasta (add the pasta a bit at a time, being careful not to add more pasta than you have sauce for).
Garnish with scallions and the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan.

I'm not familiar with blackening spice, so I just used cajun seasoning - perhaps they are the same thing? In any case, the flavor is fantastic!
