Blackened Chicken Alfredo

This Blackened Chicken Alfredo is deliciously spicy and creamy using my Air Fryer Blackened Chicken. 

The spicy chicken and creamy sauce is a perfect flavor combination. You guessed it, it’s quick and easy too.

Even better … add volume and veggies to your meal with some zoodles. Use any of the serving sizes noted on the recipe plus add in some zoodles and you’ve got yourself a huge serving with low fat and high protein! You can also add in Healthy Noodles from Costco. I love both of these options to add volume with very little effect to your macros.

Enjoy and let me know if you try it!

    The holy grail of alfredo! Added a little crushed red pepper to give a kick….literal perfection!

  • Nat

    Since I have to be dairy free do you think we can alter the recipe and still be within the macros? This looks amazing!

  • Stephanie

    Can you create a video on how to enter this recipe into my fitness pal? I weighed all my raw ingredients & entered them & then changed the serving size to grams after it was cooked but it is not coming out right

    • Stephanie

      I figured it out, for some reason it didn’t like when I weighed my milk in grams

  • Shea

    This was really good! I’m not sure why the 3 star ratings when asking a question, maybe because that’s the default?

    I blended the milk, laughing cow and cream cheese in my smoothie blender and it blended nicely, poured into the pan then added the Parmesan. Wasn’t too spicy. Added a pinch of red pepper flakes. Yum!!!

  • Jennifer Womack

    Made this the past 2 Mondays and it was a huge hit – my 3 picky (10, 12 and 15 yr old) eaters loved it!!!

  • Suz

    This was great, and easy to make.

  • Nicole

    Is there a brand of blackened chicken you’d recommend?

    • daniellelima

      I recommend making mine but you can also use Tyson frozen strips.

  • Kacie

    My husband took one bite of this and said, “I’d eat this again” so I’d call that a win! Swapped blackened chicken for regular chicken since I can’t handle spicy foods. This one is definitely going into our weekly rotation. You wouldn’t even know it’s macro friendly based on the taste!

  • Shellene Hunt

    What brand of of grated parm & cream cheese were used? Low fat? Etc.. slight variations in these will change the Macros. Can you please provide those?

  • melissa

    Hi! Question, is it 8oz dry fettuccine or 8oz cooked?
