Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Alfredo with Chicken
A super easy alfredo sauce loaded with sun dried tomatoes, spinach and chicken.
Servings: 6 people
- 6 tbsp butter unsalted
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb chicken breast cubed
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped
- 1 cup parmesan grated
- 4 cups spinach
- 10 oz fettuccine
Heat a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add butter, heavy cream and cream cheese. Simmer and whisk occasionally until butter and cream cheese are melted.
While the cream mixture is simmering, heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Season the diced chicken with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Cook the chicken in the skillet for approximately 5 minutes or until it is no longer pink. Add the minced garlic and chopped tomatoes and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat.
Once the butter and cream cheese are melted, add the grated parmesan to the sauce and whisk together until combined. Add the chicken mixture from the skillet to the sauce, and combine. Add the spinach to the sauce 1 cup at a time, stirring between each cup. Reduce the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer.
While the sauce is simmering, cook the fettuccine according to the package instructions. Once the fettuccine is done, drain it and then toss it with the sauce. Enjoy!
