Chicken Alfredo

Hubby says this tastes like Olive Garden's Chicken Alfredo...I've never eaten either because of food allergies, but I must say making this for him is much cheaper than going to Olive Garden!

Chicken Alfredo
(Printable Version)
1 pkg fettuccine pasta

olive oil
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin 1 inch strips
garlic powder
salt & pepper

1 pkg cream cheese
1 stick butter
1 1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and sprinkle with garlic powder, parsley, salt & pepper, as much or as little as you like; saute 5-10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Cover skillet to keep chicken warm while preparing sauce.

In another skillet, melt cream cheese and butter over medium heat. The mixture will look kind of gross (just warning you!) and cream cheese will be chunky. Once the mixture begins to bubble, turn heat to low and slowly whisk in milk, parmesan and pepper. Warm over low heat until sauce is hot.
Assemble pasta, chicken, and sauce on plates and serve immediately. Enjoy!

I've always been skeptical of these alfredo recipes that call for cream cheese. I don't know why, but I'm just never quite sure how that works! Sounds like I definitely need to give it a shot though-- my hubby LOVES the alfredo at Olive Garden. ;) Thanks for sharing!
