Ingredients:

  • For the Chicken:
    • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
  • For the Pasta:
    • 12 oz fettuccine pasta
  • For the Sauce:
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1 cup chicken broth
    • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped.

Let’s Get Cooking

1. Preparing the Chicken:
Start by seasoning and slicing your chicken breasts. Dredge them in breadcrumbs, then melt butter and olive oil in a skillet and cook them until they’re golden brown and perfectly juicy. Once cooked, let them rest before slicing into strips.

2. Cooking the Pasta:
While your chicken is cooking, boil the fettuccine until it’s al dente. Remember to salt your pasta water generously for the best flavor.

3. Making the Sauce:
In the same skillet, melt butter and sauté garlic until fragrant. Add heavy cream and chicken broth, bringing the mixture to a simmer. Stir in Parmesan cheese, parsley, and Italian seasoning, letting the sauce thicken to creamy perfection. If desired, add spinach and sun-dried tomatoes for extra flavor and nutrition.

4. Bringing It All Together:
Toss the cooked fettuccine and sliced chicken in the creamy sauce until everything is well coated. Serve immediately, garnished with extra Parmesan cheese for an added touch of indulgence.
