Why I Love This Recipe

This is an amazing recipe to make, it tastes great and anyone, even if you have little experience in the kitchen can make it.


Ingredients You'll Need

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

12 ounces fettuccine

Olive oil, for tossing

12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 2)

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter

2 cups heavy cream

2 pinches freshly grated nutmeg

1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano


Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and salt generously. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente (tender but still slightly firm). Drain and toss with a splash of oil.


Meanwhile, slice the chicken into 1/4-inch-thick strips, and lay them on a plate or a sheet of waxed paper. Season with salt and pepper.


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter. When the butter melts, raise the heat to medium-high and add the chicken in 1 layer. Cook, without moving the pieces, until the underside has browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the pieces, and cook until browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a medium bowl.
