This one is also pretty cheap to make so it’s perfect for a special dinner when you’re watching the grocery bill and trying to eat out less!
- 10 oz fettuccini
- 1 lb of chicken breast
- 1/2 tsp Salt and Pepper
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder and Italian Seasoning
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter
- 2 TBSP of minced garlic
- 1 1/4 cups of heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- Dried parsley
Prepping the Homemade Chicken Alfredo
This one doesn’t require a whole lot of prep work and that’s one of the reasons I love it so much! Just grab two chicken breasts and butterfly them open cutting them in half to make them thinner. Then those are going to get seasoned on both sides with 1/2 tsp salt and pepper and 1 tsp of Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
Once the chicken has been seasoned go ahead and gather the rest of the ingredients above for the Alfredo. I like to use freshly shredded Parmesan cheese and this is the point where I go ahead and get that shredded.
Cooking the Chicken
Place a large pot of water over high heat so it can heat to a boil while you cook the chicken. Next, grab a large pan and place it over medium heat dropping in a couple tablespoons of butter.
Cook your seasoned chicken breasts in the butter for 4-5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and they’ve come to a temperature of 165 degrees.
Next, you are going to add 10 ounces of pasta to the boiling water following the directions on the box.
