Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo

Are you ever craving some Chicken Alfredo but too lazy to go out for some??.. Yup happens all the time with us. So I was inspired to do my own dish and can say it’s not bad!!  You can definitely use the pasta of your choice and it will taste the same. I seriously love the flavor the mushrooms give this Alfredo sauce, then add the grilled chicken and it’s popping with flavor. You must try this chicken right after you grill it. It’s SOO good. Whenever I am busy and don’t have time to mess in the kitchen with a fancy dinner, this chicken is my go to option. It’s so simple, good and takes oh like 5 minutes of work and on the grill or pan it goes. Enjoy!!.

2 chicken breasts

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt

Pepper

Italian seasoning

6 – 8 oz Portabella Mushrooms (or regular mushrooms)

½ cooking onion

2 Tbsp butter

1 tsp olive oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp flour

Salt

Pepper

2 cups heavy whipping cream

3/4 cup parmesan cheese

8 oz Fettuccini

Serves: 6

Directions:

Cut the chicken in half. Cover with plastic wrap and beat with a smooth meat mallet.

With a pastry brush cover each side of the chicken with the extra virgin olive oil. Add salt and pepper and Italian seasoning to taste on both sides of chicken.

seasoning and preparing chicken

Clean the mushrooms and quarter them (or smaller, whatever your preference). Add to a hot skillet and cook until they start to turn a golden color and pan is dry. (If some of your family members don’t like mushrooms, keep them large in size so you can just pick them out when serving. My boys DO NOT like mushrooms and I must do this. Boohoo, they are missing so much;)…)

Chop onions and add to the mushrooms and mix. Add the butter and olive oil; cook until onions are sauteed and mushrooms are a nice golden color (about 6 minutes). Add the garlic, lightly salt and pepper. Mix and cook for about a minute. Add flour and mix well.

saute mushrooms

Pour in the heavy whipping cream and mix. Finally, add the Parmesan cheese. Turn heat down to low and let the Alfredo sauce simmer cook for about 2 minutes. (Taste to see if you need to add salt or pepper.) Remove from heat and cover.

finish Alfredo sauce and cook pasta

Cook fettuccine al dente, drain water and place into a glass pan. Add the Alfredo cream. Mix well.

Grill (or fry) the chicken breasts until chicken is cooked thoroughly, about 4-5 minutes on each side at medium/high heat. I personally LOVE the taste of this chicken grilled. Fantastic.

Slice the chicken and add to the pasta.

grill chicken and finsh

Mix again and place in a preheated oven to 365˚ for 8-10 minutes covered. Just enough to make sure everything is nice and warm.!!! (No need to do this step if food is warm.)

    So I pretty much followed the recipe; added fresh parsley and instead of noodles, I put the sauce of spinach/ricotta ravioli. Not sure how to add the picture but it’s awesome!!! I’m keeping this recipe..AWESOME!!

    Just made this and it was delicious! I added dried oregano, doll, basil and ground fennel to the mushrooms, omitted garlic (for acid reflux purposes) and used regular parm (bc it’s cheaper). Went the farmers market this morning and bought freshly made spinach fettuccini and cream from a local farm. Using fresh ingredients made it all the better. Thank you for such a great recipe! Won’t be needing another fettuccine alfredo recipe!

    • admin 03/23/2017, 1:50 am

      I am absolutely loving your version, Kay. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂 And thank you for visiting our online kitchen.

    • admin 11/02/2016, 9:12 pm

      You’re in for a treat, Lena?.. Or at least I think so.. Enjoy.

  • Lena 11/01/2016, 9:27 pm

    Definitely the best Alfredo pasta dish I tried! and I’ve tried many)) thank you very much for such a simple and yummy recipe! 🙂

    • admin 11/01/2016, 11:07 pm

      Lena,
      What a lovely comment. I am going to blush, take that as a compliment and say THANK YOU! 🙂 So glad you tried it and approve. Have you had a chance to try the Chicken and Mushroom Casserole? It was inspired by this recipe and is very g.o.o.d! 🙂

  • Eddie Robles 09/09/2016, 4:39 am

    I’ve made a lasagna with the same sauce and added spinach, turned out great. Is it possible to make this recipe with duck meat? Or puffin?

    • admin 09/11/2016, 12:41 am

      Hello Eddie.. Honestly, not having tested with neither duck or puffin with these ingredients, I cannot be sure how the results will be. Sorry, that wasn’t very helpful.?

  • Jewels 08/31/2016, 7:27 pm

    I wanted to make chicken Alfredo for the first time so I googled it and came across your recipe. Thank you! It turned out delicious!

    • admin 08/31/2016, 11:53 pm

      Jewels, Thanks for stopping by, I’m so glad you approve. 🙂 I hope you visit again, welcome.

  • VJ 08/31/2016, 3:50 pm

    Also, in the recipe directions, you have 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese. And then in the printable section of the directions, you have 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. So i don’t know which one is it…?

    • admin 08/31/2016, 7:43 pm

      Ooops, I had someone help me do the print version.. 3/4 cups:).. Thanks for catching that..

  • VJ 08/31/2016, 3:48 pm

    Thank you for such an amazing recipe, Valentina! My boys do not like mushrooms either, so can i substitute the mushrooms for spinach or broccoli?

    • admin 08/31/2016, 7:43 pm

      Hi VJ, you most definitely may substitute for broccoli, or completely leave them out, mushrooms do add taste so maybe a little more seasoning will be needed:). If you do like mushrooms though, just half them and pick them out for the kiddos.. :O)..

  • Carolyn MacVicar 03/21/2016, 9:51 am

    Hi there…..can you substitute whole milk for the heavy cream?
    Thanks!

    • admin 03/23/2016, 12:55 pm

      Hi there Carolyn, I have never tried to but you could try. (1/3 cup melted butter whipped with 3/4 cup milk is about the proportion for the substitute). For this recipe I’d say do 5 Tbsp butter (instead of the 2) and 3-4 Tbsp flour (instead of the 1) so it thickens and isn’t watery. If you give it a try, I’d love the feedback. Thank you:)..

  • Erica Sams 04/12/2015, 10:25 am
