Fettucine Alfredo

Ingredients

pasta
1-2 chicken breasts, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to boil for cooking the pasta. While you are waiting, dice and cook the chicken. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. Add to the skillet and cook until brown on one side, 3-5 minutes. Then flip and cook until browned on the other side and cooked through, an additional 3-5 minutes. Remove to a plate and let rest for a few minutes. Cover with foil to keep warm while you prepare the sauce.

Once the pasta water is boiling, cook the pasta until al dente.

To make the sauce, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cream, and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Mix in the Parmesan cheese and stir until completely melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve pasta topped with the alfredo sauce and grilled chicken pieces. Garnish with chopped fresh herbs, if desired.
