Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Lets review... for fun; my husband David HATES Alfredo. I know right! But did you catch the name of this dish... that's right. Alfredo 1, David 0. Not only did he eat this, but he loved it. I think the extra amounts of meat (bacon) really helped win him over. The taste was creamy, and the chicken, mushrooms and bacon were delicious.


1 pkg (12 oz) fettuccine
8 bacon strips, cut into 1-inch pieces
boneless, skinless chicken breasts cubed
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 cups half and half (I just used whipping cream)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp coarsely ground pepper

Cook fettuccine according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain, reserving 1-2 Tbsp drippings. Saute chicken in drippings until no longer pink. Add the mushrooms, green onions and garlic; saute until mushrooms are tender.

Stir in cream, cheese, paprika and pepper, reduce heat; simmer uncovered, for 5-10 minutes. Stir in reserved bacon.
