The Best Chicken Fettucine EVER!

Do you love Chicken Fettucine Alfredo as much as I do?  I've always liked chicken fettucine alfredo, but when a guy made it for me on one of our first dates, the whole restaurant version, was ruined.  His version had soooo much more flavor.  It was delicious and wonderful and yummy and I decided that night that I must marry this guy, despite the fact that we'd only been dating for two weeks.  And, I did.  This is Hubby's version of Chicken Fettucine Alfredo and I'm giving your fair warning that you will love it and never be able to eat it in a restaurant again.  Just sayin.


Chicken breast tenderloins
Lemon Juice
Course Grind Black Pepper or Lemon Pepper
olive oil
1 stick of butter
small carton of whipping cream
Fresh Grated Parmesan 5 oz. at least (I grate my own)
Fettucine (16 oz. box)

Marinate your chicken in Lemon juice (from 1 to 2 lemons) and pepper or lemon pepper (about 1 1/2 tsp).  Let your chicken marinate for no less than 30 minutes, but no more than 1 1/2 hours.  Drain liquid from chicken.  Heat your olive oil in a skillet and cook chicken until golden brown on both sides.

Remove chicken to paper towels to drain excess oil.  Once the chicken is cool, cut into bite size pieces.  Cook pasta per directions while you make the sauce.  In a saucepan, melt butter on low.  When the butter is melted, add your whipping cream.  Cook on low until warm and then add your parmesan and turn the heat up to medium, stirring constantly.  Cook until parmesan is melted.  Let simmer for a few minutes on low, stirring occasionally.  Drain pasta.  Add pasta and chicken in a large bowl and pour sauce over.  Stir and let cool slightly.  Add additional parmesan on top if desired. 

I have to apologize for lack of a better picture, but I couldn't wait to dive into my bowl and I completely forgot to take a picture.   So sorry, but I think you'll understand if you try it. 

***Warning:  This meal is NOT low-cal so I advise you to totally skip the scale the next day or work out extra hard at the gym.  Don't worry!  It's totally worth the extra calories, just don't eat it every day!  Also, if you're making this for a man to whom you are not married, get ready for the proposal.  If memory serves, Hubby heard those three little words, pretty soon after my first bite!***



  1. Yum!!! I woulda said yes too!

    On our third date, Mr. Sahm made me shrimp risotto with goat cheese, and I was a goner!

  2. Yum! My son, especially, would love this! And how awesome that you got a man that can cook!

  3. If I bring the garlic bread and wine, can I come to dinner?!

  4. Gosh, that looks good. I've never tried full blown alfredo sauce. It looks like I'm missing out!

  5. 3 words? "More pasta please?" ;) Looks delish!!!!!

  6. Getting my giggles out of the way because I KNEW you weren't going to think the picture was good.

    That happens to be my all time favorite "last meal if on death row" dish. I should have named my girls Fettucine and Alfredo. Seriously.

    And yours looks fabulous and sounds similar if not exact to how my favorite chef makes it. *That would be the husband in case you can't tell* I wouldn't know how. He always does it. Now, I can copy yours!


  7. Oh, man. I just had breakfast buy my tummy is dancing just looking at that!

    Thank you so much for the comments on my blog re: the nursery and my son's new room. I would really like to get back into regular blogging and I certainly appreciate you taking the time to comment! I think my "creative" juices left for a bit during this pregnancy and have recenlty resurfaced with all the nesting I feel the need to do! Thanks again!

  8. Ummm. My boys love fettucini Alfredo, and I've never had a good recipe. I assumed it was too much trouble for me to try. Looks like I could do this, though!

    I'm married to a great cook, too! :)
