Amazing! Serve with Heirloom Tomato Salad, or a nice green salad with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing, and some good, crusty bread.
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!
glalanclos 4y agoExcellent dish the whole family loved
Ccplady 5y agoThis 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."
