Best Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo Ever

Aaron made this for me while we were dating and it sealed the deal. For real. We had it for Father's Day dinner last night with homemade pasta and I remembered WHY it made me decide to marry him. Not exactly waistline friendly but sooo goooood. It's good special occasion food.

For the chicken:
2-3 8oz boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips or cubes
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine oil, garlic, salt and pepper and marinate the chicken for at least half an hour (but longer is better). Drain marinade and grill (or saute) until cooked through. Be careful not to overcook as the chicken will spend a bit of time cooking in the sauce.

For the sauce:
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T olive oil
1/4 cup white cooking wine
3 cups heavy cream
4-6 oz parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Place cooked chicken in a saucepan. Add olive oil, garlic, wine, cream and parmesan. Reduce in pan over medium heat (this takes a while, like 20-30 minutes). Salt and pepper to taste, toss with pasta.

Generously serves 4.

Found this blog through blog-hopping and made this dish tonight. My husband is now obsessed and I will be checking this website for new things to try!
