How to Make Chicken Pasta Alfredo
why you will love this recipe
I wanted to post this Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo recipe just in time for Mother’s Day because it makes dinner easy, make ahead, and most importantly, everyone loves it. Every swirl of creamy and silky pasta melts in your mouth, accompanied by succulent, crispy and juicy chicken. While there are plenty of chicken fettuccine recipes out there, this one is great for a few reasons:
Golden, buttery, and crispy panko chicken takes this dish to the next level! This chicken is taken entirely from my Chicken Parmesan recipe. It’s a celebration of juicy chicken on the inside, and a crazy, crunchy golden crust made with panko and nutty Parmesan cheese.
Chicken can be fried, grilled or air fried. Choose your own crispy journey!
Alfredo sauce will blow your mind. It’s silky smooth, rich with Parmesan cheese, garlic, and Italian seasoning, made from scratch with just a handful of ingredients. The optional cream cheese makes it extra luxurious and keeps it from separating.
Playful! Most recipes barely have enough Alfredo sauce to coat the fettuccine (it’s the worst!), but not this chicken fettuccine! It dips each noodle in a silky sauce that makes you want to lick your plate because with such a good Alfredo.
Saucier doesn’t mean heavier. Don’t worry, more sauce doesn’t mean more cream. This recipe combines heavy cream with chicken stock and cornstarch to create more of a sauce that’s more flavorful and creamy. If you want something lighter, you can replace the heavy cream with evaporated milk.
It’s the epitome of an easy decadent dinner. While the Alfredo Spaghetti Chicken is silky smooth, garlicky and creamy is a surprising, restaurant-worthy dish that can easily be made for a casual weeknight dinner in just 45 minutes!
You can totally do it yourself! Swap the chicken for grilled chicken, shrimp, sausage, or vegetables. Make it thinner, creamier, spicier, etc.
