Creamy Chicken Fettuccine
We wanted to refresh this classic pasta dish and make it a worthwhile addition to every weeknight-dinner repertoire.
Why This Recipe Works
Adding chicken transformed this traditional side dish recipe into a quick, complete meal. Though either fresh or dried pasta worked for our Creamy Chicken Fettuccine, fresh pasta is more porous than dried and better absorbed the sauce. When boiling the pasta, undercook it slightly (even shy of al dente) because the pasta cooks an additional minute or two in the sauce. Adding a little reserved pasta water toward the end of cooking helps keep the sauce stable from start to finish.
