Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with Broccoli and Cauliflower


Here's a recipe using homemade Alfredo sauce that is simply delicious. I hope you will enjoy it!

4 boneless chicken breasts, cut in 1/2-inch slices
3 tablespoons canola oil
8 oz - Fettuccine
3 cups frozen broccoli and cauliflower

Alfredo Sauce:
1/3 cup salted butter
1 cup onion
2 tablespoons minced garlic
6 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In large skillet, heat oil and sear chicken pieces until brown on both sides. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Prepare fettuccine in boiling water for 9-11 minutes, as directed on package. Cook frozen broccoli and cauliflower in microwave for 6-8 minutes until heated through, stirring halfway.

Meanwhile, melt butter in large skillet. Saute onion and garlic until tender, about 2 minutes. Add cream cheese and stir with whisk until smooth. Add half and half in three parts, stirring well each time. Add grated Parmesan and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Continue stirring until sauce reaches desired thickness. Add steamed broccoli and cauliflower to sauce.

To prepare each serving, spoon a layer of fettuccine on a plate. Top with Alfredo sauce and then chicken. May sprinkle with grated Parmesan if desired. Serves 4. Enjoy!
