Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup asiago cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley

Instructions

  • Prepare pasta according to package instructions to al dente (just a little crunch in the center)
  • While the pasta is cooking, season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • In a 12 inch skillet over medium high heat add olive oil. Place seasoned chicken in the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side. Continue cooking until and thermometer reads 165ºF in the largest part of the chicken breast. Remove from the pan when cooked through to a clean plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  • Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel, or get a new skillet.
  • Over medium heat, melt the butter and add the minced garlic. Stir and cook for 30-45 seconds until fragrant. Pour in the cream and bring to a boil.
  • Continue to boil the cream at a slow boil, stirring frequently until it thickens. This will take about 7-10 minutes.
  • Once the cream has thickened. Turn off the heat and add in the asiago cheese, parsley and salt and pepper (to taste). Stir until the cheese is melted and incorporated.
  • Add the cooked fettuccine to the cheese sauce and stir to coat all of the pasta. Slice the chicken into 1 inch pieces and place on top. Serve hot!

Notes

This recipe is best served warm, just when it has been made. If you need to reheat, do so in a pan over medium low heat, stirring frequently to prevent separation.
