Italian Breaded Chicken Over Fettucine Alfredo
Italian Breaded Chicken
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of seasoned Italian bread crumbs
1 packed of dry zesty Italian dressing mix
1/2 cup of grated parmesean cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 stick of melted butter
Mix together all ingredients except for butter. Pound down chicken until thin and coat with butter, then bread crumb mix. I sauteed in olive oil, but you can also bake them on a greased sheet at 375 for about 25-30 minutes.
Fettucine Alfredo (Olive Garden)
This recipe was given to me when I got married in a recipe box, and I've also seen it online. It's tastes exactly like Olive Garden's sauce and is so easy to make.
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 pint heavy cream (I used half and half and added a little cornstarch to thicken it up)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 lb fettuccine, prepared as directed
I also threw in a handful of grated romano cheese
In a medium saucepan, melt butter. When butter is melted, add cream cheese. When the cream cheese is softened, add heavy cream. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 15-20 minutes over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan. Serve over hot fettucine noodles.
