//Creamy Chicken Alfredo Fettuccine

Creamy Chicken Alfredo Fettuccine

I am going to apologise now, this creamy chicken fettuccine is so good you are not going to want to stop eating it #sorry.

As a teenager, I used to love those packets of Alfredo pasta, I would eat them all the time and never think twice about what might have been in them. Now that I look back, I must have been consuming all sorts of hideous things – it was no wonder I felt tired, sluggish and that I was slightly overweight. As I look back now, it’s crazy to think, that in my late teens, when I should have had all the energy in the world, I was doing this to my body. I am so glad that I have made all the switches now so that I can pass this knowledge onto my family, and give them the best life possible.

This recipe reminds me of those packets, but now that I know what I do about additives and preservatives, I can assure you, this is nothing like them. This recipe does not have a harmful chemical insight – it is made with pure, fresh ingredients and on top of all that – it made a massive amount, it is cost effective and is 100% delicious….what’s not to love.

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!

Enjoy! Tracey x

Ingredients

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 40 g cornflour
  • 1 tsp. freshly chopped parsley (could use dried as well)
  • cracked black pepper, a few good grindings
  • 1 tbsp. thermomade veggie stock
  • 450 g milk
  • 400 mL pure cream
  • 60 g tasty cheese, diced roughly
  • 100 g parmesan cheese, diced roughly
  • 40 g butter
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 500 g fettuccine pasta

Instructions

  1. First, you need to cook the chicken - fill your thermie jug with enough water to cover the blades. Roughly chop your chicken and place in the steaming basket. Steam for approx 15 mins/steaming temp/speed 2 (varoma for those with a thermomix)
  2. Check the chicken is cooked (if not cook for a further 5 mins). Tip out water and put chicken into the jug. Shred the chicken apart for 2-3 secs/reverse speed 4. Set this aside to use later. No need to wash the jug
  3. Chop garlic for 3 secs/speed 6. Scrape down sides and add butter. Cook for 2 mins/100C/speed 2
  4. Add cheese and blitz 5 secs/speed 7
  5. Add everything else (except pasta) and cook 12 mins/80C/speed 4
  6. While your sauce is cooking, boil a large pot of water and cook your pasta as per packet instructions (if your sauce finishes cooking, don't worry, just leave it to rest and thicken up)
  7. Once your pasta is cooked, drain and rinse it. Then put it back into your pot, or a very large bowl and add the chicken. Pour the sauce over the top and stir through.
  8. Serve with some freshly cracked pepper and enjoy!

      Ps: I also added some chopped bacon when cooking off the garlic. & had pre blitzed the cheese to add later. Delish!!

      Teenagers love this, another reason we don’t need to eat out of packets anymore. Always a fight for leftovers

      My husband loves creamy pastas and this one did not disappoint! The flavours are really tasty and it is nice and creamy without being too rich. Delicious to enjoy on a cold winters night!

      Great recipe, thank you! Over the last couple of weeks I’ve had a really big wake up call and have decided to (properly!) make the move to additive free and a healthier lifestyle for my family! I made this vegetarian for the kids on our #meatfreemonday… I left out the chicken and added a carrot and zucchini cut into chunks with the cheese. I also used tasty cheese for all of the cheese amount as I had no Parmesan. Only had a 300ml cream so upped the milk to 500g. Will leave it at 450 next time as there was plenty enough liquid/sauce. I cooked for 18 mins so the veggies were cooked through so my little ones wouldn’t detect them. Stirred through the pasta and they absolutely loved it!! The possibilities are endless with this recipe! Thank you again!
