Chicken Alfredo

This Chicken Alfredo comes together in minutes and is a crowd pleaser. Tender noodles are tossed in a lusciously, creamy sauce, then served with pan-fried golden brown, moist pieces of chicken. This sauce has a blend of seasoning that makes it stand out compared to others. It’s truly delicious and perfect for a weeknight meal.

The details

Boil the pasta

The first step to make this Chicken Alfredo, is to boil the pasta. It’s good to have the pasta done and ready to toss in the warm sauce when it’s ready. So, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, then cook the fettucine according to package directions. If you choose to make homemade fettucine, you can prep this the day before and store in the refrigerator until ready to toss in the sauce.

pan fry the chicken

The chicken is simple, but seriously yields delicious flavor. The chicken is seasoned with salt and pepper, then pan fried until golden brown. Once the chicken reaches 165F, remove from the skillet.

make the sauce

In the same skillet that you cooked the chicken in, you’ll make the sauce. Add the butter and cook over medium heat until melted. Add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. This makes the garlic flavors enhanced. Whisk in the cream, then bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 minutes, whisking constantly, to slightly thicken the sauce.

Whisk in the parmesan cheese and dried herbs, until smooth, then remove from the heat.

serve the pasta

Add the pasta to the sauce, then toss to combine. Cut the chicken into 1/2 inch thick strips, then serve on top of the pasta. I like to serve Chicken Alfredo with fresh parsley and freshly grated parmesan cheese on top.
