Chicken Alfredo

chicken_alfredo

I like to call this the food of angels. Probably because my pasta of choice is “angel hair” but also because the sauce is heavenly. So heavenly. And when you mix the two and top it off with grilled chicken, you’ll find yourself wanting to eat this dish every day for the rest of your life. The warm, smooth, creamy sauce is life-altering stuff! The trick to getting the sauce so smooth: stir it often with a whisk.

 

Fettuccini, angel hair, or any kind of pasta

1 cube butter/margarine

1 ½ cups heavy cream

2 T cream cheese

1 t garlic powder

½ cup grated parmesan

1 ½ cups grated mozzarella cheese

grilled chicken

 

Combine butter, cream, and cream cheese in saucepan. Using whisk, stir over medium/low heat until smooth. Add garlic powder and parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Simmer on low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often. Salt and pepper to taste. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Serve with grilled chicken, sliced on the diagonal. (I marinade chicken strips in Lawry’s Teriyaki marinade overnight before grilling.) You can serve the pasta, sauce, and chicken separately or mix it all together.
