Ingredients

    4- 5 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
    Cajun spice
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Minced Garlic
    1/4 cup White Wine
    Heavy Whipping Cream
    Salt
    Black pepper
    1 pound Fettucine Noodles
    3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Sprinkle the chicken breasts in the cajun spice and place in a cast iron skillet over very high heat. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken and place in the oven for 10 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Slice in strips on the bias and set aside.

In a saute pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. Add garlic and lightly caramelize. Then add the chicken slices. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add the heavy cream, increase the heat to a simmer, and reduce the cream sauce by half.

When the cream sauce is to desired consistency, stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan, salt, pepper, and pasta.

Nest the pasta on large rimmed plates, pour sauce over pasta, and garnish with Parmesan.
