Fettucini for the soul

I have been asked to share this recipe. First...I have to clarify. I did not create this dish. I googled it years ago like I do most things I don't have a clue how to do and found this on a British website.

I truly did not know that the Brits could cook. Well...that is.

Creamy Chicken Fettucini

1 Package fettucini pasta
4 Chicken Breasts
1/8 c. Butter
1/4 c. + 1 tb Butter, extra
1- 1/3 c. Whipping Cream
1 -1/4 c. Coarsely grated fresh parmesan cheese
1 tsp Cracked black peppercorn
1 Clove garlic, crushed
2 tsp Dried basil leaves.

Cut chicken into thin strips. Heat butter in pan, add chicken in batches, cook, stirring until lightly browned and tender; drain on absorbent paper.

Heat extra butter, add cream, stir until boiling. Add chicken, cheese (slowly), peppercorns, garlic and basil. Stir until heated through.

Serve over pasta.

Serves 4

WARNING! This is a highly addictive dish. Bears repeating often.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. You should have seen our faces when we saw the date. We have this problem with all of his birth pictures too. Kids! They are always messing with things! O well, that is what photoshop is for, right.
Have a great day.

Add the cheese slowly. I have had it clump up as I added it all at once. It is very addictive.

Oh, I also have it as 1 1/4 c. parm. cheese.
