Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo Recipe

Awhile back a friend did a recipe challenge. We were all supposed to post a family favorite recipe on our blog. Here is a family favorite of ours! WARNING: Do not make this recipe if you are in any way counting calories, I'm sure because of the ingredients, it is not the healthiest meal to eat. But oh my, it is so yummy!!!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup grated parmasean
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup milk
16 oz. fetuccini pasta
1 lb. chicken or (shrimp, if you prefer)

In a double broiler pan, melt butter and cream cheese. Add heavy whipping cream and pepper. Allow mixture to get hot. Once hot, use wire wisk and slowly add grated parmasean (mixture will be very thick). Then, use wire wisk and slowly add milk to thin out the alfredo sauce. Allow sauce to get hot once again. (When sauce gets hot, it will thicken up a little bit, to the perfect consistency.)

Dice up and brown chicken in a skillet, turn burner to low so the chicken stays warm.

Cook pasta as directed.

*Spoon pasta on plate, top with chicken, then drizzle sauce over pasta and chicken! Top it off with fresh grated parmasean cheese!
