I initially sought out this recipe to use up a jar of alfredo that I got from the damaged rack for $.90. I thought it would be a "throwaway" recipe since I usually don't buy anything like that. Wrong! Everyone loved this and absolutely devoured it (except my son, who is overly picky and doesn't count). I brined the chicken first. Although I would like to have used wine, I used chicken broth because I had no white wine in the house. And I did not finish with the fresh basil. Since I didn't serve pasta with it, I poured the sauce over our broccoli also, which worked out well. I will definitely make this again (although I will probably seek out an alfredo recipe on here rather than buying another jar).

I quite enjoyed this recipe and thought it tasted great!!! My DH, on the other hand, is a more of a "tomato and beef" type of guy when it comes to pasta, so it was just OK for him. I used Marilyn's Quick Alfredo Sauce for the sauce and this worked out really well. I initially though that with the alfredo sauce that this recipe was going to be heavy tasting in sauce and it wasn't. I used Margaret's Perfect Pasta With No Watching and No Sweating, then added some of the sauce to the noodles and mixed well. I placed the chicken over top and added a bit of the sauce, so that it was not swimming in sauce. I though the basil was an excellent finish as it really brought out a nice clean taste! I had all the ingredients ready to cook while the pasta was cooking, so this sauce was brought together quite easily! I would do this one again! Thanks for sharing!
