About the Book:
You don't have to settle for feeding your family commercially packaged meals full of sodium and preservatives or fat-laced fast food. Serve them quick and healthy meals from your very own kitchen with this easy-to-use cookbook.
I've been featuring this book this week and have done posts on Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, Swedish Blender Pancakes and Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies. I told you I'd publish one recipe today, based on reader request. I chose the Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, since it was the one my family liked best and there was no clear reader favorite.
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
20 oz fettuccine (I think you'd do fine with 2 12oz packages, there seemed to be enough sauce)
1/2 cup butter
2 cups heavy cream (I wonder if you could substitute fat free half and half--I just used the good stuff)
1 1/3 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese (my husband bought the usual stuff in the can, so I just used it)
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
Grill chicken breasts over medium-high heat until done. Slice across grain (1/2 inch slices)
While chicken is grilling, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Drop in pasta and cook according to directions. Drain.
For alfredo sauce, melt butter in a large saucepan or skillet. Add creme and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring, then add Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Turn off heat; leave pan on warm burner.
Pour alfredo sauce over cooked pasta. Top with sliced chicken breasts and sprinkle with extra cheese. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings. 502 calories per serving. 21.6 g fat--but it tastes GOOD!
If I didn't pick your favorite, you can always buy the book, or search to see if another blogger made it.
