Chicken Fettuccine

Shelley Young


I swiped this recipe from the back of a package of noodles a few years ago. The combination of flavors was sure to be a hit and it has been. I have shared the recipe with friends, my Church's cookbook, and made it for a new Mom. You can make it healthier by using uncured bacon, organic pasta, chicken and veggies.

How to Make Chicken Fettuccine


  1. Set a large pot to boil with lots of kosher salt or sea salt for the fettuccine. Cook according to package directions. Drain when done.
  2. In a skillet, fry bacon pieces until fat is rendered and they begin to crisp. Do NOT poor off the fat!
  3. Salt and pepper the chicken chunks and add to the bacon and fat and cook until no longer pink.
  4. Add garlic and sun dried tomatoes (if using) and saute 2 minutes. Be careful not to brown the garlic.
  5. Add chicken broth at this point and allow mixture to come to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat and add tomato halves, stir. Add spinach and cover to allow the steam to wilt the spinach.
  7. Once wilted (it only takes a minute or 2) stir the sauce and pour over the fettuccine. Toss and serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of parmesan.
