Chicken Alfredo Recipe
This is one of my favorite pasta. It is quite different from tomato based pasta recipe. This one is cream based, it has its own amazing flavour and creaminess. Totally yummy. I added chicken in this, but you can make it completely veg.
Add any vegetables like mushroom, zuchinni, peppers, broccoli in this and make it veg alfredo..You can check out my pasta recipes here, I have quite a collection of it. I have an indian style pasta recipe coming on its way so keep looking for it.
About Chicken Alfredo Recipe
Fettuccine Alfredo, also known as fettuccine al burro, is an Italian pasta dish that consists of fresh fettuccine tossed in butter and Parmesan cheese. As the cheese melts, it emulsifies the liquids, resulting in a smooth, rich cheese sauce that coats the pasta.

Ingredients for Chicken Alfredo Recipe
Since fresh pasta frequently contains eggs, the flavours of dried and fresh pastas are likely to differ. Similarly, the flavours of egg noodles, soba noodles, and rice noodles will differ due to the different ingredients.
Chicken breasts are prone to drying out when overcooked, so they should be cooked quickly over high heat. Cooking chicken breasts in a skillet, stir-frying, roasting/baking, or grilling are the best options.
Parmesan cheese has a hard, gritty texture and a fruity, nutty flavour. It is typically eaten grated over pastas or in soups and risottos, but it can also be eaten on its own as a snack.
Cream or Milk
A dairy product like cream or milk is added for richness and creaminess. but I like the first version better because it is guilt free.
