BEST CHICKEN ALFREDO RECIPE

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, roughly chopped
6 TBS butter, divided
4 garlic cloves, minced, divided in half
1 TBS Italian seasoning
1 pound fettuccine pasta
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 lb fettuccine pasta
1/3 cup flour
1 TBS salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 cups milk
1 cup half-and-half
3/4 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
6 oz Colby-Jack cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

In a skillet over medium heat add the 2 tablespoons of butter, two minced garlic cloves and the Italian seasoning. When hot add the chicken and cook until it is no longer pink in the center. Remove, drain and set aside.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to directions.

Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a skillet and add the onion; sautéing until tender. Add the flour, salt and pepper; cooking for two minutes. Slowly pour in the milk and half-and-half and whisk until smooth and creamy.

Now add the Parmesan and Colby-Jack cheeses; whisking until melted. Now add the cooked chicken mixture and sour cream; mix well. When heated through, serve over the cooked pasta. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top.

NOTE: You may add chopped broccoli or mushrooms.






Best Garlic Bread

Now that you know how to make chicken alfredo, you must serve this bread with it.  This is my favorite flavored butter recipe because this butter goes with so many things it would be impossible to list them all.

I usually triple the recipe, divide into equal portions and roll into logs - then freeze them. That way you always have this on hand at a moments notice to put on fish, slip under the skin of chicken, or melt over a New York strip steak.

Just slice a loaf of homemade French bread horizontally (lengthwise)** and spread on this magical garlic butter (you may add shredded mozzarella on top - a must in Wisconsin). Bake it in the oven until golden brown. Out of this world.

1 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 TBS garlic, minced
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
kosher salt to taste
1/4 tsp paprika

In a bowl, combine the butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Season with the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.

**You may also slice on the diagonal.
