Homemade Chicken Alfredo

The key to a good chicken alfredo recipe is the alfredo sauce. Without it, you would simply have chicken and noodles. So, what makes a good chicken alfredo sauce? Well it’s all about using freshly grated parmesan cheese! Parmigiano Reggiano is known as the King of Cheese, and with good reason. Their wedges of parmesan cheese are absolutely perfect for making the best chicken alfredo.

Ingredients:Homemade Chicken Alfredo - www.momwithcookies.com #chickenalfredo #homemadechickenalfredo #alfredosaucce #chickenalfredosauce #easychickenalfredo #ParmesanAmbassador #ParmigianoReggiano #cheese

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1 pckg fettucine noodles

for the chicken alfredo sauce:

8oz cream cheese

1/4 cup salted butter

3/4 cup milk

1 tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp minced garlic

3/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano parmesan cheese

Directions:

Chicken:

When we buy chicken it is usually boneless, skinless and is frozen. This is truly a preference, but I like the fact that it lasts a lot longer and in my opinion is a lot less messy. You will want to take roughly 2 pounds of frozen chicken breast and thaw it (overnight or in the microwave).

Then, sprinkle the chicken breasts with garlic salt and minced garlic, and place them on a rimmed cookie sheet with parchement paper. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. (It’s always best to check the thickest piece of chicken.)

After the chicken is done, let it rest on a cutting board for about 5 minutes before cutting into pieces.

Alfredo Sauce:

While the chicken is baking, you can then work on the sauce for the chicken alfredo. It is best to have your Parmigiano Reggiano parmesan cheese already grated and measured out so you don’t need to waste time. When you have all of your ingredients measured out and ready, turn your stove on low.

Then, in a medium sauce pan, add the milk butter and cream cheese, stirring frequently. When the butter and cream cheese have mostly melted, you can then add in the garlic salt and minced garlic. Give it a quick stir before adding in your Parmigiano Reggiano parmesan cheese.

Once you have added in all of the grated cheese, you can turn your heat up to medium, but make sure to start stirring constantly to prevent any burning of the sauce. Once all the chunks of cheese have melted and become smooth, you can remove the sauce pan from the heat.

Then, in a quart pan, boil the fettucine noodles. When the noodles have become tender, you can drain them with a strainer. The next step to this homemade chicken alfredo recipe is to assemble! Start off by adding the cooked fettucine noodles to a large mixing bowl. Next, you will then add the chicken.

  1. My kids both love alfredo with chicken. I’ve not tried it with cream cheese in the sauce before. I bet that helps the sauce to “hold together” better.

  2. Perfect. Now Iโ€™m craving this! So this is whatโ€™s for dinner tomorrow. Thanks so much Joanna for the awesome inspiration. Iโ€™m excited to try your recipe! โค๏ธ

  3. My husband calls Fettucine Alfredo โ€œadult Mac n cheeseโ€ lol. This looks very good. I usually add broccoli to mine too so I feel a bit healthier. Or at least pretend to hehe
