Chicken Alfredo with a twist

Spring has sprung, and with it comes the unpredictability of the thermostat. One moment you’re ready to fire up the grill, the next, you’re pulling your sweater back over your head as the temperature and reaching for your thermal socks. But don't worry, I have the perfect dish that delivers some of the flavors of spring while keeping you cozy indoors.

4 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups whole milk
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
12 oz. fettuccine
2 cups Parmesan finely grated (about 2 oz.)
1 cup heavy cream
½ cup panko bread crumbs
1-quart cherry tomatoes, halved
12 oz fresh spinach leaves
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Step 1.  In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and cook until golden brown and thoroughly cooked, about 8 minutes per side. Let them rest on a cutting board before slicing into strips.

Step 2. Using the same skillet, combine the chicken broth, milk, and garlic, seasoning with a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a gentle simmer, then add the fettuccine, cooking until it’s just shy of al dente.
Creamy & Cheesy: Fold in the Parmesan and cream, bringing the mixture back to a simmer. Continue stirring until the sauce thickens and the pasta is perfectly al dente.
Step 3. Once the pasta is ready, introduce the spinach and a handful of cherry tomatoes for a burst of color and freshness.
Step 4. Remove the skillet from the heat and mix in the sliced chicken, ensuring each piece is lovingly coated with the creamy sauce.
Step 5. In a separate pan, melt a tablespoon of butter, then toast the panko breadcrumbs to a light golden brown. Sprinkle over the chicken and pasta, and finish with a sprinkle of parsley for that fresh, herby touch.

There you have it, a Chicken Alfredo that’s as comforting as it is quick to whip up. It’s the perfect meal to bridge the gap between the last chill of winter and the first warm breeze of spring. And remember, just like DeBoer’s Auto helps you navigate life’s unexpected turns, this recipe is here to make sure you’re well-fed and ready for whatever the weather throws your way. Enjoy! 🌷🍝
