Blackened Shrimp & Chicken Bake

By Fazoli's September 23, 2019

Our new Blackened Shrimp & Chicken Bake is made with orecchiette (pronounced oh-reck-ee-ET-tay) pasta, our new smoked Gouda cheese sauce, fire-roasted red peppers, and blackened chicken and shrimp. Blackening is a style of Cajun cooking that involves seasoning seafood, chicken, or any other type of meat with a blend of thyme, oregano, cayenne pepper, and paprika. After seasoning, the meat is seared at a high temperature to give it its iconic blackened appearance. It’s smoky and spicy. After we load up the pasta with the blackened chicken and shrimp, we top it with a blend of mozzarella and Gouda cheese and bake it until it’s perfectly golden brown.
