Chicken Alfredo

Nuvita Biscuits


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast (cut up into 2″ pieces)
  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil (divided in half)
  • 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 cup Onion (chopped and divided)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (chopped and divided)
  • 1 tsp Oregano (dried)
  • 1 cup White Wine
  • 1/2 cup Whipping Cream (or Half and Half)
  • 1/2 cup +1 tsp Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 1 lb Fettuccine or Linguine
  • 1 tsp Pepper (ground)
  • 2 tsp Parsley flakes (dried)


Place 6 quarts of water in a large pot and bring to a boil.  Add salt and pasta and cook until done.

While water is coming to a boil, heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add 2 tsp olive oil, 1/4 cup onion, 1/2 garlic and red pepper flakes.
Add chicken pieces to skillet  and saute until done (about 4 minutes)  Remove chicken.

Add remaining oil, onion and garlic to skillet and saute about 1 minute.  Add white wine (take skillet off stove while adding the wine to prevent fire) and continue to cook over medium heat until reduced in half (about 5 minutes).

 Lower heat to simmer and add cream(milk) and parmesan cheese.  Stir until thickened (about 2 minutes) Add parsley flakes and stir.

Drain pasta and reserve 1 cup of pasta water in case you need it.  Add pasta to sauce and mix. (If pasta is too thick at this point add the reserved pasta water) Place all but a few pieces of chicken in the pasta.

Pour pasta into a serving bowl, place remaining chicken on top.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese and some parsley.

    I don’t have a bunch of stuff on hand and I have about an hour to make chicken alfredo. I was wondering if I could just make pre-packaged alfredo and add my own chicken?

    i bought a few packages of the meatball lasagne and chicken alfredo and its all pre-cooked, then frozen. I would like to try to do the same. In these packages, there is quarter or loonie sized frozen pieces of sauce. Does any1 have any suggestions on how to do this???? I figure it would take longer for it to unthaw when cooking if its was a huge ball or piece of sauce. Thanks in Advance.
    i forgot to add that these quarter-sized pieces were also as thin as a quarter.

    A year ago I found a recipe on the internet for Chicken Alfredo and the chicken was rolled around cheese, sauted and then added to the alfredo sauce. It was wonderful but I can’t find the recipe and I would like to make it again.

    Chicken is one of the only meats I will eat, but my mom doesn’t know many recipes for it. She breads it sometimes or makes chicken alfredo, but that’s about it.
