Recipe: Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo using my super easy white sauce mix

My kids beg for me to make this dinner.  I’m not sure why I don’t make it more often since it is super easy, cheap and constructed from basic pantry staples.  My white sauce mix makes whipping this dish up at the end of a long day super easy.  We eat large amounts of pasta at our house, so feel free to half the recipe if yours doesn’t eat a full pound of pasta at a single meal.

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

1 large chicken breast
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Italian Seasoning
1 pound Fettuccine (or Spaghetti)

1 c. White Sauce Mix
2 c. Milk
dash Onion Powder
dash Garlic Powder
1/2 c. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Heat oil in small frying pan.  Generously season breast with salt, onion, garlic and italian seasonings.  Fry 5-10 minutes per side till golden brown and cooked through.  Remove from heat and let rest while you prepare the pasta and sauce.  Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile in a medium saucepan combine white sauce mix, milk, onion and garlic.  Bring to a boil stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and add cheese, mixing until melted.  Combine pasta with sauce tossing to coat evenly.  Slice Chicken and place on the top.

I purposely left off measurements for the seasonings, so if you like lots of onion and flavor use more.  We are not onion lovers, so I only use a dash.  The cheese is also optional.  When I have some on hand I add it in.  Any cheese adds a rich flavor and thickness to the sauce.
