Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cook the fettuccine pasta according to package instructions in a pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain and set aside, reserving about 1/4 cup of pasta water.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, season the diced chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken pieces and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Be careful not to burn it.
  5. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the butter to the skillet. Once melted, pour in the heavy cream and stir to combine.
  6. Gradually sprinkle in the grated Parmesan cheese, stirring constantly until the sauce is smooth and thickened.
  7. Add the cooked chicken back to the skillet along with the cooked fettuccine pasta. Toss everything together until the pasta is coated evenly with the sauce. If the sauce is too thick, you can add a splash of reserved pasta water to thin it out.
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed. Serve the Chicken Alfredo Pasta hot, garnished with fresh parsley if desired.

Note

  • This recipe can be easily customized with additional ingredients like mushrooms or spinach. Adjust seasoning according to personal preference.
