Three Alarm Blackened Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by sbera007

(Warning: you may want to open a window and shut off the smoke detector when preparing this dish). I received this recipe from a coworker, but I tripled the recipe to kick it up. I serve this with Alfredo and bow tie pasta. This is great dish for company and I guarantee if they love spice they will ask for it again.

This was super spicy. I had to cut back on the spice. It did set off the smoke alarm. LOL Made for Fall PAC 2009. Thanks.
