Yum! I love blackened chicken and love to have it with pasta. This was great because I got both in one dish! I used linguine and it was delish. Thanks for sharing. Made for Zaar Alphabet Chef Tag.

This is one w-i-c-k-e-d dish! Raves upon raves came from my family. Easy to prepare and restaurant quality. Oh, I used spaghetti and it was still as delicious. I promised not to tell, but the secret ingredient is the parmesan!
