When our kids were small, we craved time with other adults. Luckily, a few of our Sunday School classmates did, too! We started a supper club – a meal together, just the adults, once a month.
At one of these favorite dinners, our hostess prepared Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. Such deliciousness! My first thought was, “This tastes like fancy restaurant food.” (Remember, y’all, we didn’t get out much.) Our hostess shared the recipe, and since that time I’ve made it often for our family (and sometimes guests).
Tonight we’re having guests over for dinner, and guess what I’m cooking? (Guests always deserve fancy restaurant food, y’all.) Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo is one of my favorites, not only because it’s tasty, but it’s also quick – less than 30 minutes to make. I prepare the salad ahead and stick it in the fridge so I can focus on the main course in the final minutes.
Guests for dinner are always special. We still enjoy adult companionship, and fellowship around the table is a blessed time. This recipe makes for easy preparation and an enjoyable evening. Here’s how, y’all.
Print the recipe for Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo.
While Fettuccine is boiling, place a tablespoon each of butter and olive oil in a large skillet, add 1/4 cup chopped green onions and 2 minced garlic cloves, and sauté for one minute.
Add 3 cups cooked chicken. (A step I do ahead of time – cook and cube chicken to keep in the freezer for future meals.) You can easily use cubed raw chicken. Just takes a few extra minutes to cook it through.
After your chicken is hot (and fully cooked – no pink), stir in:
- 1 cup whole cream
- 1 package Pasta Prima Alfredo sauce mix (like McCormick)
- 12 oz. sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 can drained diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper.
Bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer 3-5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.
Stir in 1/4 cup Parsley and 2 Tbsp. Basil; remove from heat. Pour sauce over prepared Fettuccine and fold together.
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan. Add salad…
Oh, and don’t forget the bread. I forgot to include it in my picture, y’all, but bread is always present at our meals. HH finally taught me! He says no meal is complete without it. Yesterday, a sharing friend made a fresh loaf of sourdough bread for our dinner. We’ll talk about that later, y’all, ’cause it’s gooooood! 😉
