4- 5 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup White Wine
Heavy Whipping Cream
1 pound Fettucine Noodles
3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
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.
Number of Servings: 4
