  • 1 16 oz pckg fettucine noodles


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic

Alfredo Sauce

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • ¾ cup Parmigiano Reggiano parmesan cheese



  1. Sprinkle minced garlic and garlic salt onto chicken breasts and place on a rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes or until a meat thermometer measures the chicken at 165 degrees.

  2. When chicken is finished cooking, place the chicken breasts onto a cutting board to rest for about 5 minutes before cutting into pieces.

  3. 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.

  4. Then, in a medium saucepan, 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.
  5. 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 saucepan from the heat.
  6. Finally, boil the noodles in a large quart pan until tender. Afterwards, you will assemble the chicken alfredo. Place the noodles in a large bowl or serving platter, followed by the chicken. Then, pour the alfredo sauce on top. You can eat it like it is or mix before serving.
