How to Make CHICKEN PECAN FETTUCCINE

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet
    Add chicken pieces and sauté until lightly browned
    then remove chicken from skillet and set aside
  2. To the pan drippings in the skillet add the mushrooms,1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and sauté till tender
  3. Add chicken back to the skillet with the mushrooms and simmer about 20 minutes till chicken is done
  4. Cook fettuccini according to the package directions on the box then drain the pasta and set aside for a minute
  5. In the pasta pan combine the 1/2 cup of butter and next six ingredients and heat until hot, not boiling, on stove
