Easy Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe {Red Lobster Copycat}

I’m always on a quest to discover new and delicious options for quick weeknight dinners. We are so busy these days that I don’t have time for extensive and time consuming prep work. I need fast and I need yummy or these little creatures won’t eat.

One of my absolute favorite things to eat is the Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo from Red Lobster. When I was pregnant with Zoey I consumed it by the pound. Seriously. The hostess at the front desk knew me by name. That was embarrassing.

I’ve never found a recipe that was as good as Red Lobster, affordable to make at home, and easy enough to do on a weeknight.

After experimenting and trying different ingredients I have finally done it. I have made a Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo that is delicious and rivals Red Lobster. 

No seriously, I mean it. I served it at a large family function and was reprimanded by my mother-in-law for spending too much money on take out from Red Lobster. I took great delight in telling her it was home made. It’s the little things, y’all.

Of course it helped that I found the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix at Wal*Mart. Those biscuits….they were sooooo good! They tasted just like the real ones from the restaurant. I will never serve this pasta dish without the biscuits ever again.

Course Dinner
Cuisine Italian
Servings 6 Pax


  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts, cooked & diced*
  • 1 lb Fettuccine noodles
  • 2 jars Prego Homestyle Alfredo sauce
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved


  • Cook noodles as directed on package.
  • Meanwhile, combine diced chicken and Zatarains blackened seasoning in pot.
  • The Zatarains blackened seasoning has some serious kick to it so start out with a little bit and increase it as you go.
  • Heat chicken over low to medium heat until blackened seasoning coats heated chicken, about 4-5 minutes stirring frequently.
  • Once chicken is heated through, add halved grape tomatoes and stir frequently until they soften, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add both jars of Alfredo sauce to chicken and tomatoes and continue to heat over low to medium heat.
  • Serve sauce mixture over hot fettuccine noodles with Cheddar Bay Biscuits.


Zatarains Blackened Seasoning, to taste*
*I chose to use 2 packs of the refrigerated Tyson’s Southwestern Style Chicken strips instead to save time.
*I found the Zatarains Blackened Seasoning at Wal*Mart.

Doesn’t that look amazing? The taste is even more amazing, especially for a dish that used no time intensive, home made ingredients.

From prep to table, this dinner took me 15 minutes- and that includes making the biscuits!
