Easy Chicken Alfredo is a simple dinner recipe for any occasion. I love this creamy indulgent sauce. This pasta is the ultimate Italian comfort food.


Ingredients

Scale

Chicken

  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Alfredo Sauce

  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 lb fettuccine noodles, cooked according to package

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Rub the olive oil, salt, and pepper all over the chicken breasts. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the juices of the chicken run clear.
  2. While the chicken is baking, prepare the noodles according to the package.
  3. In a large skillet melt 4 Tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Toss in the shallot, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir constantly so the garlic does not burn. Pour in a pint of heavy cream. Turn the heat up to medium-high and bring everything to a simmer. Turn the heat back down to low and add in the Parmesan cheese. Once the cheese has melted toss the fettuccine noodles all in the cheese sauce.
  4. Top the fettuccine with the baked chicken and serve with more Parmesan cheese.
