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

  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!
