Fettucine Chicken Alfredo

My family has fallen in love with Chicken Alfredo. Since eating it the last time that Kayla and I went to Olive Garden, I decided to try my hand at home.

If you don't have time to make the sauce homemade, you can just use the jarred stuff. It tastes awesome!

Here is the recipe that I have been using. It is from the Kraft website. Enjoy!

What You Need

1/2 lb. Fettuccine, uncooked
1 lb.  Boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1-1/4 cups Fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
4 tsp.  Flour
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz.) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, cubed
3 Tbsp.  KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1/4 tsp. Garlic powder
1/4 tsp.  Pepper

Make It

COOK pasta as directed on package.
MEANWHILE, heat large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 to 7 min. or until chicken is done, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet. Mix broth and flour in same skillet. Stir in Neufchatel, 2 Tbsp. Parmesan, garlic powder and pepper; cook 2 min. or until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly with whisk. Stir in chicken.
DRAIN pasta; place in large bowl. Add chicken mixture; toss to coat. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.

I've always been afraid to make alfredo since the sauce is so deadly but this looks pretty good! Thanks for the recipe.

I love that you suggest using the jar sauce! :) That's what I've done - and even the light version tastes pretty good!
