Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
I am a visual person and I believe having a video recipe is extremely useful so I will attempt to make as many as I can. All things considered, I made 3 different videos, and I must say that it was a disaster.
It was not going how I would have preferred it. I had a flour drop to the floor, like the whole bagful, pasta sauce everywhere throughout the tiles and walls that we painted a week before. BECAUSE as I was recording my measuring cup magically just slipped like I didn’t have hands at all.
Just when I am verging on finished one of the recordings I poured myself one tall glass of squeezed orange juice, which I knocked off the ledge and do I have to say more?
That is to say, those two days I want to be resting as opposed to shooting a video.
Here and there, things don’t genuinely go the way we want them to go. However, we lift ourselves up and go on.
For what is worth regardless of my crazy clumsy weekend, this fettuccine was stunning and very delicious.
It brightened my day, that’s for sure! I had the whole pack of “store bought” grilled chicken that I usually put on my mixed greens, however, I didn’t know what to make for a supper that each of the 5 of us could appreciate together.
In this way, after a tad bit of conceptualizing, the idea was to make something that you would most likely request in the Italian eatery and pay around $15.
I think this entire family size dinner cost me that much… $15. With that being said, you can purchase Alfredo sauce, or make my simple one.
I included a recipe beneath. It is completely up to you. Furthermore, obviously, if you would prefer not to purchase grilled chicken please pan-fry or saute, or barbecue it yourself.
When you have cooked chicken, sauce and pasta this recipe is done in 5 minutes. You can prepare ahead, place in the fridge and just mix it up together when you are ready.
Please, let me know if you make it, share your pictures using hashtag #sandraseasycooking, and wait for that video for my easy step-by-step instructions.
Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
Delicious, an easy and simple recipe for Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
- 1 1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce
- 1 pound Grilled Chicken Strips store bought/ pan sauteed or grilled works fine
- 1 cup frozen peas slightly defrosted (you can use canned peas)
- 1 box 1 pound Fettuccine pasta,
- Pinch of Ground black pepper
- Dry Parsley
- Shredded Parmesan cheese
- Garnish with fresh herbs
- 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 4 cloves garlic peeled and crushed
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
- Salt to taste
- In a medium saucepan, add one and a half cup of Heavy Cream, and to the cream add 4 peeled and crushed garlic cloves. Turn the heat on medium-low until the cream starts to bubble, not boil, but a bubble. Turn the heat to LOW and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. The cream will be infused with the garlic flavor and aroma. After 10 minutes take the garlic cloves out, season it with ground black pepper and salt to taste. Let it simmer for 5 more minutes and then add grated Parmesan cheese. Heavy cream is already silky smooth so no additional oils would be necessary, however, you can add 1 tablespoon of butter if you desire.
- In a large pot, add water with a tablespoon of salt. Let the water boil and add pasta. Cook according to the pasta box, usually 8-10 minutes. Drain the pasta and set aside.
- In a skillet or deeper frying pan, add Alfredo sauce, defrosted peas, and chicken strips if they are cooked, if not season the chicken with a few pinches of salt and pepper, slice into equal size strips and cook for a couple of minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink, or you can grill it yourself, just slice before adding.
- To the Alfredo Sauce, peas and chicken, add cooked pasta, stir and add black pepper, shredded Parm cheese and a sprinkle of dry parsley.
- Stir and garnish with fresh herbs. I had beautiful fresh Thyme, so that’s what I’ve used.
You can buy grilled chicken from the store OR make your own. All you need 1 lbs of chicken, which is usually one full chicken breast. Grill, saute, roast; just a season, cook and slice the way you want. You can add mushrooms if you like, broccoli or any other veggies that you prefer. Peas go perfectly with this dish, though. Also, you may use canned peas if you have that on hand. YOU DO NOT have to add peas at all. You can use Alfredo sauce from the store OR try my homemade that is so easy you will never buy again. This serves 6 if you are going to the serving size, however, depending on the appetite and the person, 4 people could be pretty full. I used grated Parm cheese because it melts better than grated, but again it’s up to you.
