Grilled Chicken Over Creamy Fettucini Alfredo

I love love love this dish!  Some people cut the chicken breast up and mix with the pasta and alfredo sauce but I like to grill my chicken and lay it right on top.  This way you do not lose the grilled taste to the chicken.  I love cream based sauces and alfredo is on the top of my list.  I love to use alfredo with all types of pasta.  If there is someone in your family or someone you know who is allergic to wheat you can use eggs noodles, that’s really yummy also.  This is a quick but filling meal and will surely satisfy the taste buds to infinity and beyond!! HAHA ok, I’ve been listening to my kids way too much this week!!  BUT really it was that good, Hubby and both of the kids  gave it the Super thumbs up!  Enoy, Enjoy and Enjoy!!!  And one more ENJOY!!




4-6 thinly sliced boneless and skinless chicken breast
1/2 pound dried fettuccini pasta
Extra virgin olive oil for chicken and pasta
4 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
Sea salt (to taste)
Ground Pepper (to taste)
Granulated Garlic (to taste)
Thyme (to taste)
Spanish Paprika (to taste) (you can use regular paprika also)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 stick unsalted butter
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
½ cup shredded parmigiano reggiano  cheese
¼ cup reserved pasta water
2-3 tbsp. finely chopped parsley


  1. Clean chicken breast
  2. Heat grill pan on high with extra virgin olive oil
  3. Season chicken breast on both sides with sea salt, ground pepper, granulated garlic, thyme and Spanish paprika
  4. Turn grill pan down to medium and add seasoned chicken breast, cook on both sides about 10-15 minutes or until chicken is
    cooked all the way through
  5. While chicken is cooking add about 3-4 cups of water, 2-3 tbsp. of sea salt and vegetable or canola oil to a large sauce pan and place on stove on high
  6. After water is boiling add dried fettuccini pasta and allow to cook on medium to high for about 10-15 minutes or until
    pasta is al dente (stir occasionally)
  7. Once pasta is al dente, drain water (but set aside 1/4 cup of the pasta water) and add to large bowl and add 4-6 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, sea salt (to taste) and
    granulated garlic (to taste) and toss
  8. Add 1 stick (cut up) of unsalted butter to large frying pan on medium to high heat
  9. Once butter is melted add heavy whipping cream and reserved pasta water and whisk until it comes to a slight boil
  10. Add parmesan and parmigiano reggiano cheeses to whipping cream, water and butter and gently whisk until all cheese is melted, season with sea salt (to taste) and ground pepper (to taste), allow to come to a boil and then take off heat and allow sit for about 2-3 minutes to thicken
  11. After alfredo sauce has thickened, add pasta to alfredo sauce and fold gently toss together until pasta is covered in alfredo sauce
  12. Plate pasta and place chicken breast on top
  13. Add finely chopped fresh parsley to top
  14. Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy and one more Enjoy!!

** TIP:  If you do not eat meat, omit the chicken, this alfredo fettuccini is also delicious without the meat, try adding some spinach or broccoli

** TIP:  Substitute Heavy Whipping Cream with Greek Yogurt for a healthier option!!

    looks delicious….. the chicken does not look like it was just grilled. how did you accomplish it looking like it is breaded. what is that on top of the chicken? i see the parsley, but looks like something else. no grill marks. whatever you did, looks like it will be delicious.


    • Hi Karen … nope the chicken was just grilled no breading here ;O) … the red stuff on top with the parsley is the Spanish paparika – this dish is so delicious! Hope you enjoy and check out some of our other yummy for your tummy recipes … visit often ;o)

    Please never wash your meat. Washing raw meat is a serious food safety contamination concern. It can spread pathogens not only from the meat to your kitchen but also spreads any pathogens around and throughout your meat.
