How To Make Chicken Alfredo With Fettuccine Noodles

Substitute for Half and Half?

Half and half can be substituted for equal parts milk and heavy whipping cream in this recipe. When the half-and-half simmers and rests, it thickens even more. Use heavy whipping cream in place of the other ingredient if you’d like a creamier or thicker sauce.

How to Make Chicken Alfredo (Video below):

1. Cook fettuccini in a large pot of salted water (4 qts water with 1 Tbsp salt,) according to package instructions then drain and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, thinly slice chicken breast into strips and season all over with salt and pepper. In a large, deep skillet, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium/high heat and saute chicken until light golden and cooked through (5 min). Remove chicken from the pan and cover to keep warm.

3. Add 1 tablespoon each of olive oil and butter to the same pan and heat it on medium-high. Add onion and sauté 3 minutes until soft. Add the sliced mushrooms and stir often for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they become soft. Stirring constantly, add the garlic and sauté for an additional 30 seconds until fragrant.

4. Mix in the half-and-half and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes on medium-high heat, or until the mixture starts to thicken. Return the chicken to the pan, add 1/4 cup parsley, and adjust the sauce’s seasoning with 1/2 to 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.

5. Add cooked pasta and stir to combine. Warm the pasta for an additional minute, then remove from the heat, cover it, and let it rest for ten to fifteen minutes. Finally, stir everything together and serve it with extra parsley on top.

The pasta will have a perfectly creamy yet light Alfredo sauce that coats the noodles after it has rested.
