Fettuccine Ingredients

  • 16 oz Fettuccine Noodles Dried
  • 16 oz Alfredo Sauce Prepared or Homemade
  • 1 tsp Salt

Chicken Ingredients

  • 3, 6 oz Chicken Breast Boneless, Skinless
  • 4 tbsp Butter Divided
  • 8 oz Cremini Mushrooms Diced, or Thinly Sliced
  • 12 slices Black Forest Ham Thinly Sliced
  • 6 slices Provolone Cheese Thinly Sliced
  • 18-24 leaves Fresh Basil
  • 1 tsp Salt Plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp Pepper Plus more to taste


Fettuccine Preparation

  • In a large pot, bring 4 – 6 quarts of water to a boil. Add salt to taste (about 1 tsp). Add pasta to pot, and stir gently. Return to a boil, and cook pasta until al dente (about 9-11 minutes).
  • While the pasta is cooking, prepare Homemade Alfredo Sauce, or warm store-bought sauce on the stove over medium-heat.

Chicken Preparation

  • In a large saute pan, add 2 tbsp butter and melt over medium-high heat.
  • Add mushrooms and saute until golden brown, flipping occasionally (about 8 minutes). Transfer mushrooms to a plate, and set aside.
  • Cut chicken breasts in half, horizontally, and pound into an even thickness (about 1/4" thick). Season each side of the chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  • Add additional 2 tbsp butter to saute pan, and add chicken cutlets to the pan. Saute chicken on each side until golden brown and cooked through (about 3 minutes).
  • Transfer chicken to a foil-lined baking sheet. Evenly distribute mushrooms on top of each chicken cutlet. Next, add about 3-4 basil leaves on top of the mushrooms to evenly cover the mushrooms. Then, add 2 slices of ham on top of the basil. Finally, top each chicken cutlet with Provolone cheese.
  • Broil chicken for about 3-5 minutes until the cheese melts and starts to brown and bubble.
  • Serve chicken on top of the Fettuccine Alfredo.
