Why I Love This Recipe

I like chicken Alfredo


Ingredients You'll Need

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

12 ounces fettuccine

Olive oil, for tossing

12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 2)

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter

2 cups heavy cream

2 pinches freshly grated nutmeg

1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano


Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and salt generously. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente (tender but still slightly firm). Drain and toss with a splash of oil.


Meanwhile, slice the chicken into 1/4-inch-thick strips, and lay them on a plate or a sheet of waxed paper. Season with salt and pepper.


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter. When the butter melts, raise the heat to medium-high and add the chicken in 1 layer. Cook, without moving the pieces, until the underside has browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the pieces, and cook until browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a medium bowl.
