For the Chicken

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter

For the Sauce

  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 lbs fettuccine noodles


  • Make the noodles: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fettuccine and cook until al dente according to package directions, usually 10 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water, then drain well. Set aside.
  • Warm the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet.
  • Add the chicken and leave it undisturbed for 5-7 minutes, until the bottom is golden-brown.
  • Flip over and add in 1 tablespoon of butter between them
  • Continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes (or an internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.)
  • Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 3 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Tent with foil while you prepare the sauce.
  • In a medium saucepan add butter, heavy whipping cream, and cream cheese. Cook over medium heat and whisk until melted.
  • Add the minced garlic, garlic powder, italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • Continue to whisk until smooth. Add the grated parmesan cheese.
  • Bring to a simmer and continue to cook for about 3-5 minutes or until it starts to thicken.
  • Take sauce off the heat and immediately toss with the cooked fettuccine noodles.
  • Divide the pasta among serving bowls and top with a few slices of chicken. Garnish with parsley, more Parmesan, and black pepper if desired.
