Chicken Tequila Fettuccine

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

Here's a Southwest twist to chicken and fettuccine! This has an intriguing flavor and is a colorful entrée! I like to serve this with a mixed lettuce and fruit salad on the side and garlic bread. Originally from "Pleasures of the Good Earth", a cookbook I got in Sedona, Arizona.

Have loved this recipe since the first time I had it in CPK - and this tastes exactly the same
