How do you make Homemade Creamy Chicken Alfredo with Cream Cheese


Note: Don't forget the golden rule of seasoning: salt and pepper make everything better! Be sure to sprinkle a pinch of salt and a crack of pepper over every part of this dish, from the sauce to the chicken. It's the little touch that elevates the flavors and brings out the best in every bite.

Instructions:


  1. Prepare the Chicken:

  • Season both sides of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs and cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

  1. Cook the Pasta:

  • Cook the fettuccine pasta according to package instructions in a pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain and set aside, reserving about 1/2 cup of pasta water.

  1. Make the Sauce:

  • In the same skillet used for the chicken, add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the softened cream cheese to the skillet. Stir until the cream cheese is melted and smooth.

  • Add dried basil and dried oregano to the skillet, stirring to incorporate the herbs into the sauce.

  • Gradually pour in the canned evaporated milk, stirring constantly until the sauce is smooth and heated through.

  • Stir in the shredded Parmesan cheese until melted and well combined with the sauce.

  1. Combine Chicken, Sauce, and Pasta:

  • Slice the cooked chicken thighs into strips and return them to the skillet with the sauce. Stir well to coat the chicken with the creamy sauce.

  • If the sauce is too thick, gradually add some of the reserved pasta water until desired consistency is reached.

  • Add the cooked fettuccine pasta to the skillet with the chicken and sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is evenly coated.

  1. Serve:

  • Serve the creamy chicken Alfredo topped with chopped fresh parsley.

  1. Enjoy!

  • Serve hot and enjoy your delicious homemade creamy chicken Alfredo with cream cheese, basil, oregano, and Parmesan cheese!
