Ingredients

  • 2 (8 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste, if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup freshly shaved parmesan, asiago, romano cheese blend
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste I used 1/4 teaspoon each
  • Half and half to thin, if necessary

Instructions

  • Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  • Heat oil in a LARGE straight edged sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add chicken and cook on one side for 4 minutes - don’t touch it.
  • Flip the chicken, then cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Cover the pan with a tight fitting lid and reduce the heat to low.
  • Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Remove chicken and set aside.
  • Drain the pan.
  • Place uncooked fettuccine noodles, broth, milk, butter, and garlic in the drained pan.
  • Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a simmer (this will take a few minutes), stirring constantly and separating the noodles with tongs as they start to soften.
  • Once simmering, simmer for about 9 minutes or until pasta is cooked to your preferred texture. Stir regularly to keep the noodles from sticking. You may need to adjust your heat to keep it at a simmer.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cheese and Italian seasoning.
 Taste and season with salt and pepper. 

  • Let stand for 5 minutes to thicken. Meanwhile, slice your chicken.
  • Thin the pasta with half and half, if necessary.
  • Serve with sliced chicken and enjoy!
