Blackened Chicken with Penne Pasta

Total Time

I had this dish at a local restaurant. The waitress quickly told me the ingredients and I experimented with the amounts. It tastes very close to the original dish (good thing, the restaurant is no longer open). I like spicy dishes and this is good. Enjoy!

WOW!!! This recipe was WONDERFUL!!! I cut the cajun seasoning in half because of the kids but everything else was the same. I was a little concerned about it being too runny with that much cream but it wasn't. It got rave reviews from each member of my family! Only my niece thought it was too spicy. Next time I may leave out the pine nuts because my kids hate nuts but I don't think it will take away from this dish at all. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!
