Perfect, Creamy, Fettuccine Alfredo

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Do you want the most perfect, flavorful, creamiest Alfredo sauce in the *entire* world? This recipe is seriously, the best. I could eat this every day. This is the perfect “for company” recipe when you want to serve a delicious dish that everyone will *love* and will super-impress your guests and have them all *begging* for the recipe. And it has a nice presentation on the plate!

I adapted this recipe from a recipe on the Sunday Baker’s recipe blog. She’s got a lot of really good recipes, check out her site when you get a chance! :)

Here’s how I make mine.. Let’s start with the chicken.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Rinse 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts in cold water.

Layer between 2 sheets of wax paper and pound until even thickness.

I almost always pound my chicken breasts, no matter what method of cooking, because if they’re even, they’ll cook more evenly *and* I think they make a better presentation. Culinary *and* cosmetic benefits! :)

Now for the marinade…

Ingredients:
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk + 1 tbsp lemon juice (mix together and let sit for 10 mins and this becomes a substitute for buttermilk)
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Mix together milk, lemon juice, egg and garlic powder. In a perfect world, you’ll want to pour this in a ziploc bag with the pounded chicken and marinate in the fridge for 2-4 hours. However, I can hardly ever get my act together enough to marinate the chicken 2-4 hours before I eat so…..

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Usually I just go ahead and put the chicken right in and let it hang out in there while I’m making the breading mix.

The Breading Mix…

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tbsp Montreal Steak Seasoning

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Whisk together flour, bread crumbs, salt, baking powder, and steak seasoning in a medium bowl.

Did you know that whisking produces the same texture as sifting? And it’s much easier! :)

Remove chicken from milk mixture, shake off excess, and coat both sides in flour mixture.

Now we’ve got all three of our chicken breasts nice and breaded. Let’s just let them hang out on this plate for a sec while we ready the noodles!

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tbsp of salt.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

When the water has come to a nice, rolling boil, add your favorite pasta. I like to use 1/2 lb of linguine noodles for this recipe. It’s the perfect amount for 2-3 adults. Cook according to package directions.

Now… The Sauce…

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Ingredients:
1 scant cup chicken broth (Scant means “a little less than”. So “a little less than” 1 cup. You may also use white wine instead of chicken broth. I give you permission. ;))
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
2-3 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 basil leaves, chiffonaded
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

In a medium saucepan, heat chicken broth over medium high heat, bringing to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and whisk in heavy cream, cornstarch, and garlic. Bring to a soft boil and whisk for one minute. Reduce heat to low, whisk in parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Let simmer for about 10 mins to melt cheese, let thicken, and incorporate flavors, whisking occasionally.

Meanwhile…

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Add 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

We want to let the butter and oil get nice and hot before we add the chicken, so let it get all sizzley, then it’ll calm back down when the butter starts to brown:

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

When it looks like this, it’s time to add the chicken.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Let the chicken cook 4-5 mins on one side.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Wow! 3 pots at one time! I feel all professional and stuff! ;)

Back to the chicken.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

After 4-5 mins, or when the bottom is nice and golden, flip the chicken to the other side and cook an additional 4-5 mins, or until the other side is nice and golden. :)

While the chicken is cooking, let’s chop our herbs. Now I just ran right over to my lovely neighbor’s beautiful garden and picked some fresh basil and parsley right from the ground! :) But if you don’t have access to your neighbor’s garden, you can buy fresh basil and parsley from the produce section of your grocery store. Usually they are hanging in bags on the wall. They are labeled and everything! Very easy. :) But, if you can’t find them, don’t let that stop you from making this recipe. Go ahead and try it without the herbs, I bet you’ll still love it. :) (Note: I would try to buy the basil on the same day you plan on using it. It tends to wilt quickly. Parsley lasts forever though. Okay, maybe a week or two. I haven’t really tested my theory.)

Oh right! Back to the herb chopping.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Grab 6-8 basil leaves

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Roll them up tightly

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

And slice thinly with a sharp knife (I use a paring knife). Oh btw, I am using a cutting board, I’m not doing this straight on my counter! LOL. The cutting board is just clear, so you can see right through it. hah.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Now! We have some chiffonaded basil. Pretty isn’t it? :) Basil smells soooooo good.

Now let’s chop up some parsley.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

You could just take a knife and chop up these parsley leaves, but…

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

I have this Pampered Chef chopper and it does the job for me, much better than I could ever do. :p

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Keep chopping until you have about 1 tbsp of chopped parsley.

Now! At this time, everything should be coming together!

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

Go ahead and throw your herbs into the Alfredo sauce and stir well with a spoon.

Your chicken should be all nice and golden now.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

So it’s time to put it all together.

perfect creamy fettuccine chicken alfredo pasta

A Parmesan cream sauce with a hint of garlic, served over fettuccine noodles and topped with a lightly breaded, golden fried chicken breast.

And if you feel like it, go ahead and pour some more sauce right over that chicken. It’s *de*licious.

This recipe as is serves 2-3 adults. If you’re serving more than that, you’ll need to double the recipe or adjust it accordingly. :)

Perfect, Creamy, Fettuccine Alfredo

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tbsp steak seasoning
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb linguine noodles
1 tbsp salt
1 scant cup chicken broth
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
2-3 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 basil leaves, chiffonaded
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Layer chicken between wax paper and pound breasts to even thickness. In a small bowl, mix the egg, milk, lemon juice and garlic powder. Pour mixture into ziploc bag with chicken. Seal and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours. After marinating, whisk together flour, bread crumbs, salt, baking powder, and steak seasoning in a medium bowl. Remove chicken from milk mixture, shake off excess, and coat in flour mixture. Add 1 tbsp of salt to a large pot of water and bring to boil. Boil noodles according to package. Then, in a medium saucepan, heat chicken broth over medium high heat, bringing to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in heavy cream, cornstarch, and garlic. Bring to a soft boil and stir for one minute. Reduce heat to low, add parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Let simmer for about 10 mins to melt cheese, let thicken, and incorporate flavors. Meanwhile, heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When butter just starts to turn brown, arrange chicken in skillet. Cook 4-5 mins each side until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through. While chicken is cooking, chop fresh herbs and stir into Alfredo sauce right before serving. Serve sauce over pasta and chicken.


Whoaaa, that seems like a lot of ingredients doesn’t it? But most of the stuff you probably already have on hand. When I want to make this, I usually only have to buy the chicken, chicken broth, and heavy cream.

Have fun and enjoy! :)

What temp. do you use for the chicken? I’d love to try this but whenever I try to fry chicken, it’s golden brown on the outside but still pink inside.. By the time it’s finally pink inside, and there are several cut marks from checking, the meat is overcooked. Help?

I have been trying and searching through various cookbooks and recipes for a proper alfredo flavor off and on for over a year. No matter what, the basis of the sauce is some combination of parmesean/romano with cream. I have always felt that neither any pre-made concoction or recipe was quite perfect. The addition of chicken broth is what brings this one to a higher place than all others I have tried. I am cooking for a girl I haven’t seen in years next weekend and this is one of the dishes she wants. I now am pleased with my alfredo sauce.

My modification was a shot of a dry white wine, and the addition of some very finely chopped shallot, caramelized in the pan with the garlic before addition of the broth, otherwise same recipe.

Spot on, and thanks so much for posting this. This type of thing is what the internet is SUPPOSED to be for.

Oh, and this is very similar to the style sauce of the Olive Garden.

For those who like “heat” of the Outback style sauce, just add a pinch of ground Cayenne pepper.

Hi Amanda, thanks for this recipe. I made it tonight and it was the best Chicken Alfredo I’ve ever tasted. I used chicken strips instead of full chicken breasts and they cooked very fast – so no problem with undercooking or burning. I’ve made several of your recipes and I love to use fresh herbs from my garden – so I always look for recipes that call for herbs. Thanks for the great recipes and photos. I’ve told several friends to check out your site. :)

I won’t be pulling pork until about 4 or 5AM in the morning LOL. I can’t wait to try it.
I’ve been reading ALL the Great comments you get & I’m ready to run back out to the store to get all the ingredients I need for THIS recipe & try this. I’ve posted to my friends on FB “This is the most amazing recipe web site I have ever seen on the Internet in all my years of web surfing. WOW LOL”

Amanda,
Great recipe, I LOVE alfredo sauce! Listen, you mentioned how basil wilts quickly and I’ve fought that good fight too many times to count. If you put your extra fresh basil in a glass of water and set it in your kitchen window (DO NOT PUT BASIL IN REFRIDGERATOR!!) it lasts FOREVER. Seriously, I have had it sprout roots and begin to flower right there in the water. No soil, no love, I just keep adding water to the cup as it evaporates. Hope this helps some of you who are tired of throwing out expensive herbs that go bad before you use it!

Amanda,

Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe! My very picky family just loved it and has asked me to make this more often. Seriously, the sauce is about as good as the sauce at 13 coins on “The Believer” (and it didn’t even cost me $25 bucks a plate). That is one hard act to follow. I can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!

Thanks again

Hey Amanda,
Just wanted to rave about your recipe just like everyone else. Everyone really loved it and my favorite part personally is the sauce! I’ve made chicken alfredo many many times before because I love olive gardens but this even tops theirs! I usually fry the chicken with some seasoning but this breading was yummy. Only wish I had made my favorite stuffed mushroom recipe with it, maybe next time! I use Kraft’s Ultimate Stuffed Mushroom recipe and it never fails to deliver. Definitely will be making this again and again.
Thanks, Tiff

I was wondering, can you make this sauce ahead of time, store it and reheat it when ready to use, or will it separate? I’m eager to try this due to the rave reviews, but I may need to plan ahead. Thanks!

I made this tonight and it was sooooooo good!!! I used buttermilk since I had it and I cut my chicken breasts into bite-size pieces instead of leaving them whole. I didn’t have fresh basil or parsley so I use 1/4 tsp dried. I may cut the salt back a bit next time but I will use this recipe from now on! Thanks so much =)

Oh my goodness. I made this for Mother’s Day today for my grandma, great grandma, mom, cousins, uncle and sister. Every single person LOVED it!! It turned out abosolutely amazing! I used six chicken breasts, cut in half long ways, and tripled the breadcrumb amount, which ended up to be too much. I doubled the sauce amount, because I didn’t have enough cream, but I could have tripled it, everybody loved it so much. This was a perfect recipe. I have a hard time cooking chicken, but it turned out perfectly. I served it with fresh fruit salad and roasted brussels sprouts. My mom and grandmas were very pleased. Thank you for this recipe!

The sauce was delicious, but the chicken came out wayyyy too salty, and I even under-salted it. Next time I may leave out the Montreal rub and salt and just use my own blend of seasoned breadcrumbs. Great sauce, though, even with dried herbs instead of fresh! (Waiting for my basil plant to fluff up a bit more before I attack it.)

Just made this tonight and it got rave reviews. As usual I doubled the recipe to be sure there’s enough sauce (I think there would have been) but also because I like having leftovers. I didn’t have fresh basil (it can be hard to find at stores because it goes bad fairly quickly and my basil plants are struggling here in TX). Instead I used a basil paste (comes in a tube and has the basil chopped up in the paste so it’s visible in the sauce) and stirred it in after the parmesan cheese. I think the paste really brings out more of the basil flavor and will use paste and fresh basil the next time I make it. Thanks for sharing it!

Made this last night for my daughters volleyball team. I don’t eat pasta so I didn’t taste. BUT, it must have been delish because 14 high school girls actually put their phones down and were quiet for 15 min. When they spoke again, everything was gone. Yippee!! Will be adding to my list of recipes that quiet teenagers! Thanks!

This was amazing! Best chicken fettuccine recipe I have ever used. My family loved it as well. The chicken was crispy, sauce was rich and creamy. Nothing bland about this one!
