Blackened Chicken Alfredo w/ Broccoli

This is one of my go-to dinners lately. It is SO simple, I feel weird even posting it right now as a ‘recipe’. But I just had to share it with all of you guys. Work has been so busy lately that I’ve been trying to come up with quick and easy recipes that don’t require using 30 different dishes that you have to wash later.

I LOVE blackened chicken, it makes the chicken nice and spicy and goes perfectly with some creamy alfredo and parmesan. I added the broccoli to make it a little healthy. The blackened chicken is so versatile, you can make extra for the week and use it for salads, quesadillas, etc. fullsizerender4

    Yay! I’m going to make this on Saturday Emily. Can’t wait! I totally blew the kitchen up last weekend making mac and cheese, cornbread and ribs. Pots and pans, measuring cups and bowls were everywhere. Cooking is so messy!
