Chicken Fettucine Alfredo

Serves 4  (very well)

What you need:

3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into cubes
3 tablespoons butter, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced, divided
1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 pound fettuccini pasta
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 (8 ounce) package sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1-1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 pound shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
1-1/2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup sour cream

What you do:

Grab a large skillet. Turn up your heat to medium. Throw in half your butter,  half the garlic and italian seasoning. Cook thoroughly making sure the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.  When chicken is cooked take of heat and set it aside.

Throw on a large pot of water and cook the pasta according to package directions.

While your pasta is cooking throw in the rest of the butter and garlic and the onions and mushrooms. Cook until the onions are clear.  Stir in the flour, salt and pepper.  Cook it for two minutes. Pour in your milk and half and half slowly. Making sure to stir it until it becomes creamy.  Stir in the Parm and Colby/Jack.  Keep stirring until it melts into the mixture.  Once your cheese it melted toss in your chicken, tomatoes, and sour cream.

Blend gently and serve over cooked fettucine.

Make it a meal:

Even though this has veggies in it, something this rich brings out the guilt in me, and that can only be alleviated by a large fresh garden salad. ;) I also add a nice loaf of crunchy bread with this. Kind if defeats the purpose of the salad, but you have to have something to sop up the sauce.

What did we think?

Fantastic. We love Olive Garden and this rivaled any food I have eaten there. The hubby and the little one thought it was great and we all enjoyed this chicken fettucine alfredo. I have tried others that just weren’t that great, but this one is delic.  It also makes a LOT, so even though the recipe says it serves 4 we still had more than enough leftovers for another lunch.  I also think I would add peas and carrots next time.  This turns it into a primavera, but good none the less.
