My Aunt Cathy's Alfredo Sauced Chicken

My dad's family lives in British Columbia and some of my favourite childhood memories are from times that we would travel there to visit them.  On one trip, my dad's sister (my Aunt Cathy) made us this dish for dinner.  I absolutely loved it, and being that I was the a very picky child back then, it surely was a huge compliment when I asked for seconds. The combination of peas, wine, and honey make for a unique flavour that really brings the dish together.  You will not be disappointed if you decide to make this.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 6 small boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 lb fettuccine
  • 4 qts boiling water
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil

  • 1/2 cup butter or hard margarine
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Directions

Heat cooking oil in frying pan.  Add chicken.  Saute for about 5 minutes until no pink remains.

Cook fettuccine in boiling water, cooking oil and salt in large uncovered pot for 5 to 7 minutes until tender but firm.  Drain.  Return noodles to pot.
