Chicken Alfredo

Chicken with a creamy alfredo sauce over pasta is seriously quick and delicious. Its and easy dish to change to your own tastes by adding sage, mushrooms or bacon, some left over gammon or even a little chili. (good for 4 servings)

What you need

1 kg chicken breast or thighs
100g butter
1/2 cup grated parmesan
200ml cream
salt and pepper
1 packet of your favorite pasta (penne or fettuccine are great)
Oil for frying

The process

Slice the chicken breast across the grain into thin strips and then halve them and season with salt and pepper.

Put the pasta on the boil while you make the sauce.

Quick fry the chicken pieces in a little oil in a hot pan, tossing constantly and set aside. You dont want them too stew so make the pan hot and move the chicken around constantly.

In a pot over a medium heat melt the butter, add the cream and parmesan and stir quickly until the cheese has melted. Remove from the heat before it boils and add the chicken pices. Stir to combine.

Drain the pasta, put it back into the pot, add the sauce and mix.

Serve immediately.
