This easy Chicken Alfredo is creamy homemade fettuccine alfredo with chicken, just like the menu at Olive Garden™ and other restaurants. It’s delicious comfort food and a quick weeknight dinner you can make in just 20 minutes.
FULL RECIPE ➜
12 oz fettuccine pasta
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
2 chicken breasts boneless + skinless, sliced into 1/4″ strips
3 cloves garlic minced
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped – optional
Cook pasta in a large pot of water according to package directions until al dente. Drain and toss with a small amount of olive oil to prevent sticking.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butter followed by sliced chicken breasts.
Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink and starting to turn golden brown.
Add the minced garlic, salt and pepper and sauté for 30 seconds more until fragrant.
Add cream to the pan and reduce heat to medium-low.
Cook several minutes until the sauce is bubbling and thickening, stirring from time to time.
Once thickened, add 1/2 cup parmesan to the pan and stir until combined. Remove from heat.
Add cooked pasta to the chicken mixture, tossing several times to combine.
Place pasta on serving plates. Sprinkle remaining parmesan on top and garnish with optional parsley. Enjoy!
