Directions

  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour 3/4 cup chicken broth over garlic mixture; stir in red peppers. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until broth is slightly reduced, about 10 minutes.

  • Pour cream into broth mixture; bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook chicken in the hot oil, occasionally pressing with the back of a slotted spatula, until no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a work surface and cover with a piece of aluminum foil; discard fat from skillet.

  • Pour remaining 1/4 cup chicken broth into the same large skillet and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Pour broth mixture into cream sauce; stir in basil.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccine, bring back to a boil, and cook pasta over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to a bowl and toss with 3 to 4 tablespoons cream sauce.

  • Cut each chicken breast into 2 to 3 diagonal slices. Transfer pasta to serving plates; top with chicken and cream sauce.

Cook's Note:

Add a mix of cornstarch and water to thicken the sauce.

I made it in my Instant Pot using frozen thighs. I added the other ingredients and pressure cooked for 15 minutes; then manually released; added cream. Very tasty sauce and tender and moist chicken. Read More

The dish was quite bland. I should have followed other recommendations and added more garlic and spices. The sauce was boring and I tried to salvage the dish with Parmesan cheese which helped a tad. I don t think I will make this again. Read More

This sauce was sooo delicious! Restaurant quality! Served with asparagus instead of fettuccine (the sauce even tastes great over the asparagus). The only change I made was that I used 4 cloves of garlic instead of 2. I recommend starting the sauce well before the chicken it takes a long time to thicken. I will definitely make this again!:) Read More

Excellent recipe! I added about 6 cloves of garlic and served with bow tie pasta and a side of asparagus. This would be good over rice or just with fresh string beans or asparagus. As the other reviewer said I might add some more spice too. I wish I used the whole 12 oz jar of peppers. Next time. Enjoy! And thanks!! Read More
