Step 1

Cook fettuccine to al dente, drain, and set aside.

In large size saucepan, heat the oil. Add garlic, and sauté for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add onions and sauté until translucent, about 1 minute, then add peppers and continue to sauté for another minute.

Deglaze with chicken stock, bring to a simmer, and reduce by half. Add V-8 juice and cayenne pepper and bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Mix cornstarch with cold water to make a slurry. Add slurry to sauce, stirring constantly until it reaches saucy consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the fettuccine to the sauce and gently mix until it is heated.

Arrange the fettuccine on serving dish and top with chicken breast. Sprinkle with parmesan and parsley. Drizzle with olive oil if desired.
