Chicken Fettuccine in Bourbon Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

A good quality bourbon is needed to insure that an otherwise interesting way to use leftover chicken can become an impressive meal for two. Serve with a green vegetable or a salad

What a beautiful pasta dish for 2. Such an quick recipe too. Made this for just me this time, left-overs in the fridge for tomorrows lunch. Had the recipe on my kitchen laptop for ages, wish I had made it ages ago. I will make up for lost time now I have tried it. Well worth 5 stars. Bill thanks for posting.
