FETTUCCINE ALFREDO WITH CHICKEN – February 7 – National Fettuccine Alfredo Day

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 16 oz package of fettuccine noodles
  • 1 tablespoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon for the sauce
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup half and half
  • ⅓ cup (3 oz) cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot over medium-high heat add the chicken and enough water to cover.  Cook until the chicken is done.  Remove the chicken and dice.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot bring water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt and the fettuccine noodles.  Cook 8-10 minutes, until al dente, drain.
  3. While the chicken and pasta cooks, add the milk, half and half, cream cheese, flour, and 1 teaspoon salt into a blender. Blend until smooth and set aside.
  4. In a non-stick saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter and add the garlic.  Saute the garlic for about 1 minute.  Add the milk mixture to the pan and turn up to medium-high.  Stir constantly until the sauce starts to simmer, about 3-4 minutes.  Turn heat back down to medium and keep stirring until it is much thicker, about 2-3 minutes more.
  5.  When the mixture has thickened remove from heat, add the Parmesan cheese and chicken stir in.  Cover the pan and let sit for 10 minutes.
  6. Add the pasta to a bowl and while tossing the pasta slowly add the sauce until the pasta is thoroughly coated.
