The classic combination of mushrooms and chicken adds a twist to fettuccine Alfredo.

ingredients

  • 6 ounces fettuccine, uncooked
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 12 ounces fresh white mushrooms, sliced (about 4 1/2 cups)
  • 1 jar (about 17 ounces) Alfredo sauce
  • 1 cup peas (optional)

directions

Cook fettuccine according to package directions; drain.

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir until golden on all sides, about 5 minutes; remove to a plate. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet. Add mushrooms; saute until lightly browned and liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; return chicken to skillet; stir in Alfredo sauce and 1 cup peas, if desired; cover and simmer until sauce is hot, about 3 minutes; stirring occasionally. Serve over fettuccine, sprinkled with parsley, if desired.
