Chicken Pecan Fettuccine

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by jacknalecsmom

A delicious chicken in cream sauce over fettuccine with pecans sprinkled on top. I got this recipe at my grocery store and it is quick (25 minutes start to finish) and luscious. I don't buy chicken cut into tenders because it is more expensive. I just use 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (5 oz size). If you don't like mushrooms feel free to leave them out. Half of my family doesn't like them so I saute them separately for those who like them. This is perfect with broccoli Italiano.

This is very quick to put together. I did add quite a bit more wine after adding the cream since it got very thick. It was quite plain so I added a bit of cajun seasoning. Love the crunch of the pecans. IMO this would not serve 6 sauce wise. I used maybe 3 ounces of linquine and there was just enough sauce with the added wine. Made for PAC Fall 2009
