Mom’s Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo (VIDEO)

Mom’s creamy Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo has been a family favorite for years. Classic Chicken Alfredo is a feel good comfort food – so creamy but light!

Mom learned how to make this “Pollo Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo” in culinary school. She made it for us when we were kids and we were crazy about it. Now I make the same alfredo recipe for my family. It’s one of my favorite comfort foods. Watch the video tutorial and learn how to make chicken alfredo.

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Chicken Alfredo with mushrooms and fettuccini pasta

Ingredients for Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo:

We usually use chicken breast but chicken tenders would work well if that is what you have on hand.

Fettuccini is the pasta of choice here but we’ve been known to swap with angel hair or vermicelli. You can use a variety of pastas. P.S. sometimes we sneak in the full pound of pasta when feeding a crowd. 

Substitute for Half and Half?

This recipe calls for half and half, but you can substitute with equal parts of milk and heavy whipping cream. The half and half thickens as it simmers and even more as it rests. If you prefer a creamier or thicker sauce, you can use heavy whipping cream instead. 

Ingredients for Chicken alfredo with chicken breast, mushrooms, half and half, fettuccine noodles

How to Make Chicken Alfredo (Video below):

1. Cook fettuccini in a large pot of salted water (4 qts water with 1 Tbsp salt,) according to package instructions then drain and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, thinly slice chicken breast into strips and season all over with salt and pepper. In a large, deep skillet, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium/high heat and saute chicken until light golden and cooked through (5 min). Remove chicken from the pan and cover to keep warm.

3. In the same pan over medium/high, add 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter. Add onion and sauté 3 minutes until soft. Add sliced mushrooms and sauté until soft (5-7 min), stirring frequently. Add garlic and sauté another 30 seconds until fragrant, stirring constantly.

4. Add half-n-half and simmer over medium/high heat 8-10 min, or until just beginning to thicken. Add chicken back to pan, along with 1/4 cup parsley and season sauce to taste (1/2 to 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper).

5. Add cooked pasta and stir to combine. Heat another minute until warmed through then turn off the heat, cover and let pasta rest 10-15 minutes then stir to combine and serve garnished with more parsley.

After the pasta rests, you will have a creamy but light Alfredo sauce that coats the noodles perfectly.

This is definitely a feel good chicken fettuccini alfredo. It’s so creamy and satisfying, but light! Since it isn’t heavy-cream based, it fills you up without the guilt 🙂 I can’t even count how many times my Mom made this growing up. I hope this becomes a go-to pasta recipe for you as well!

    There is no cheese in this recipe so it should not be called Alfredo. Traditional alfredo has cheese in the sauce. It was good but I think you should change the name b/c it’s misleading. Your recipes are wonderful and I love that I can usually trust them! This one is good but not named correctly. Thanks, Natasha!

    This is not an Alfredo, it’s a Tetrazzini.
    Alfredo is: cream, butter, pepper, cheese. That’s it.
    Tetrazzini is: chicken/turkey, mushrooms, garlic, cream, butter, pepper, cheese.

      Hi Vicki, when using a light cream (half and half), it is important to simmer the sauce until it thickens slightly or it will be too loose and won’t coat the noodles easily.

I wanted to add Parmesan Cheese to the sauce but my grandson dislikes it. I was pleased how rich, thick and delicious the sause was and so simple. I scooped out a huge serving for my grandson and then added fresh parmesan to the pot. I got rave reviews and they gave you a thumbs up and a 10 star review.

    Hi Natasha. I like your blog and tried some of your recipes! Your Thanksgiving turkey has been my go-to recipe for years now.
    Lately, your website’s been heavily plastered with ads, a lot of which aren’t even food related. It doesn’t seem that you’re endorsing them either. It’s very frustrating to try and read a recipe with ads popping up from all angles. I understand the costs bloggers incur and try to recoup through advertising, but if the goal is to grow a loyal audience, is that the way to go?

    I do not mix all chicken with noodles, because I like to use that chicken with mashed potatoes the next day. So, I have usually two meals: with noodles today and mashed potatoes or rice or buckwheat tomorrow.I liked the recipe very much. Next time, though, I will add a table spoon of flower before I add half and half. Thanks, Natasha

    Hi Natasha! I’m new to your channel and have quickly become a huge fan..your recipes look sooo yummy 🤤 i wanted to ask if you have a recipe for this Alfredo without the chicken? Not that i don’t want to make it with chicken but I only have a whole chicken right now and I plan to make it using your instant pot whole chicken recipe. I’m afraid it won’t have the full flavor of yours without it. Any ideas? Also how would you reheat the leftovers?

      Hi Carla, To be honest, I haven’t tried freezing it but I think it might work. I’d add a little bit more cream or half and half when re-heating to make sure it isn’t dry.

    Hi Natasha,
    I have used this recipe a few times but always wondered why you don’t use any freshly grated parmesan cheese with it. It is still my family favorite but we always add some parmesan.
    Thank you from Northwestern Ontario, Canada

      Thank you so much for sharing that with me, Terry. Since it is a lighter sauce (half and half), we serve the finished pasta with freshly grated parmesan cheese which melts over the top when served hot.

    Hi Natasha! I tried this recipe yesterday and it was soooo good!! I’m a beginner in cooking so I wasn’t sure how this was gonna turn out, but it totally exceeded my expectations! My family loved it too🥰 the sauce is light and creamy but not too thick which is perfect! Will definitely try this out again😋 looking forward to trying your other recipes❤️

    Would you recommend reserving some pasta water to combine with the sauce and the noodles to finish this? That’s my go to method with tomato based sauces but not sure how it would work with a cream based sauce…

    Hi Natasha,
    I absolutely love watching you cook some awesome meals and I made your Chicken Fettucine Alfredo recipe but was surprised that you don’t add fresh grated parmesan to yours, I told my wife and daughter and they both wanted parmesan cheese added to it… they loved it with garlic toast, just wonder why your recipe doesn’t have it as many do.
    Thanks for recipe just the same.

    Has anyone made this with unsweetened almond milk? We have a lactose intolerance thing going on in our family!

    Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      December 1, 2020

      Hi Karin, I really haven’t tested anything else with this recipe that is dairy-free. One of my readers recently mentioned that they use the cream from canned coconut milk to make my zuppa toscana soup recipe creamy without using milk cream, but I haven’t tested that here so it’s hard to recommend it here. The almond milk would not be thick enough on it’s own but it may work if you add 3 Tbsp of flour after the mushrooms are cooked and sauté the mushrooms with the flour for a couple minutes until golden then slowly add about 2 to 2 1/2 cups almond milk and bring to a simmer, whisking until it thickens. I haven’t tried this method myself but I’ve seen it done online. Sorry I can’t be more helpful – that’s my best guess!

      Hi Neil, that can happen if you boil at too high of heat, or for too long. Also, if adding parmesan, I would turn the heat off after adding it or it can clump in the sauce.

    So dissapointed in myself. I added half a cup of grated parm and a tsp of flour to thicken the sauce, and it ended up clumping, which is fine as long as the flavor was right. However, I found the mushroom to be overpowering, and masking any creamy flavor. I’m also not sure if I liked the onion. Overall, I wasn’t getting the delicious thick creamy comfort of alfredo that I was going for. Thank you for sharing your recipe though.

    My Italian grandmother used to make me and my cousins pastina when we were growing up. It’s made with Acini de Pepe pasta, one egg (whisked and then dropped into the water after the pasta cooks), butter, parmesan, salt, and pepper. It’s really good.

    I followed each step, plus I added a half cup of parmesan cheese, mix into ingredients; thereafter, I added the parsley.
    Allowing the dish to sit for 10-15 minutes is the key. The sauce will thicken.

        I’d suggest not using any salt in the pasta water or adding any to the dish itself, if that’s the case. The butter and half and half already have it and the onions and garlic within the recipe will add a ton of flavor as is, so you really shouldn’t miss out on flavor all that much.
