Ingredients

  • – 1 pound cooked chicken breast, cut into slices

  • – 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • – ⅔ cup heavy cream

  • – ⅔ cup milk

  • – 1 cup shredded mozzarella

  • – ¼ cup grated Parmesan

  • – 4 cups cooked fettuccine

  • – 2 cups steamed broccoli florets

  • – 6 strips cooked bacon, crumbled

  • – Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

In a large skillet over medium heat, add the minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute, then add in the cream and milk. Bring the garlic mixture to a boil, then add in the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses and stir until melted. Turn off the heat and mix in the cooked pasta. Arrange the chicken slices, broccoli and bacon over the noodles. Fold everything together and serve. Tips If you’re starting with uncooked chicken breasts, sauté them in 1 tablespoon of olive oil before slicing into thin strips. You can then continue into step 1 of this recipe by sautéing the garlic in the same pan using the leftover olive oil. Four cups of cooked fettuccine is roughly equivalent to 8 ounces of uncooked fettuccine, cooked according to package directions.
