Recipe by Seasoned Cook
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Great for pasta night! This is one of my family's mainstay dishes and better than you get in the restaurants! We make it as a one-dish meal and just add crusty bread. Easy preparation!

This sauce ... is AMAZING. I don't even bother buying storebought alfredo anymore because this just tastes sooooo much better. I use linguine for my pasta, and I put blackening season on my chicken. I pan sear the chicken for a few minutes on each side, and then I put the breasts in the oven for 10mins. PERFECT chicken for this pasta. Although my recipe ends up being cajun chicken alfredo linguine, the sauce still makes it remarkable. Love it!!
