Ingredients:

Chicken:

  • 2 large chicken breasts, pounded evenly
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

Fettuccine Alfredo:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups heavy cream, warmed to room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 16 ounces uncooked fettuccine noodles, fresh or dried

Instructions:

  1. Drizzle and rub 1 tablespoon of olive oil on the chicken breasts. Sprinkle with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Remove from the skillet, place it on a cutting board, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let it rest.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet or saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Whisk in the cream, salt, freshly ground black pepper, and Italian seasoning. Simmer until slightly thickened, avoiding boiling. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting and stir in the Parmesan Cheese until melted.
  4. In the meantime, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the fettuccini noodles and cook al dente according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water and drain well.
  5. Add the fettuccine noodles to the Alfredo sauce. Cut the chicken into thin slices and add it to the pasta. Season with more salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Optionally, sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
