Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Chicken Alfredo is a classic Italian-American pasta dish that has been a favorite of many for years. This recipe combines tender chicken breast, creamy sauce, and pasta to create a delicious meal that is perfect for any occasion.

Growing up, Chicken Alfredo was always a special treat in my family. My mom would make it for us on special occasions or when we had guests over. It was always a hit and I have continued to make it for my own family and friends.


  • 1 pound fettuccine pasta
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Cook the fettuccine pasta according to the package directions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from the pan and let cool. Once cooled, slice the chicken into thin strips.
  3. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Add the Parmesan cheese and stir until melted and combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add the cooked fettuccine and sliced chicken to the skillet with the sauce. Toss until the pasta and chicken are coated in the sauce.
  6. Serve hot with chopped fresh parsley on top, if desired.

Serving Suggestions

Chicken Alfredo is a great dish to serve for a special occasion or for a comforting weeknight dinner. Serve with a side salad and garlic bread for a complete meal. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop with a little extra cream or milk to loosen up the sauce. Enjoy!
