  • 2 chicken breasts boneless and skinless cut into cubes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 8 ounce fettuccine
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 sprig basil
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese grated


  • Season chicken generously with salt and pepper. Add oil to a Dutch Oven or a medium size pot and heat it over medium high heat. Add chicken and brown it on all sides, but not cooked through.
  • Add garlic and sauté for a minute until fragrant. Add chicken broth, heavy cream, pasta and basil sprig. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  • Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally. When pasta is cooked to your liking add frozen peas and cook for 1 more minute. Stir in Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper if needed.


  1. Leftovers: Transfer the fettuccine Alfredo into an airtight storage container and let it cool completely before freezing or refrigerating. You can refrigerate up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Something to note, you may find a skin texture form over your sauce that resembles a paste-like consistency; this is normal!
  2. Reheating leftovers: I recommend reheating your leftovers in a pan over low heat. Microwaving may leave your noodles with a too-soft texture and sauce may be greasy rather than creamy.
  3. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
