recipe: chicken bowtie alfredo

chicken bowtie alfredo recipe

If you're a frequent reader, you know that I suck in the kitchen and that my husband is a badass and cook pretty much anything. For real. Since being married, I actually prefer to eat at home because his meals are better than eating out. That says a lot coming from me - lover of dining out.
So anyway, since discovering his major talents in the kitchen (even he didn't know that he was that good), we like to search for recipes that challenge him.
That being said, I could eat pasta everyday for lunch and dinner. And sometimes breakfast. Seriously. I love it so much. So usually when I'm the one searching for recipes, I look for something that has pasta in it. This one was a challenge because he had never made a white sauce from scratch before. And alfredo from a jar is so gross to me.
So he tried it.. and like always, he killed it. It's now one of my favorite dishes!
Here are a few pictures from various steps of the cooking process. The recipe follows. Enjoy!



+ 12 ounces bowtie pasta
+ 4 tablespoons butter
+ 2 chicken breasts (boneless and skinless)
+ salt and pepper to taste
+ your choice of seasoning for chicken (we use a garlic and herb mix)
+ 2 cloves of garlic, minced
+ 3/4 cups dry white wine
+ 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
+ 3/4 cups parmeson shavings (or grated)
+ 2 tablespoons of minced fresh parsley


Cook pasta according to package. Drain and set aside.
Season chicken both sides of chicken breasts with your choice of seasoning.
Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in large skillet over medium/high heat.
Add chicken breasts to skillet. Cook until browned on both sides and cooked through center.
Remove chicken from skillet, slice into small strips, and set aside.
Add additional butter and minced garlic to skillet.
Cook for about 1 minute. Stir to avoid burning garlic.
Add wine. Cook for about 2 minutes.
Add half and half, cream, salt, and pepper. Stir until combined and cook until it thickens a bit.
Once sauce is thickened to your liking, reduce heat. Add parmesan and hot, cooked pasta. Toss. Add chicken. Toss again until all combined.
Taste and adjust with additional salt/pepper if needed.
Top with parmesan and parsley. Serve while hot!

I hope you love it!
