Fresh Fettuccine With Pulled Rotisserie Chicken, Pesto, and Roas

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Chef Christine

What better to cook than something so fast and packed with flavor? I got this recipe from Sara Moulton's show. Instead of pulled rotisserie I just fried chicken breast with adobo. I also omitted the olives since they're not my taste. I almost went into a panic when I thought I lost the recipe. That's how much I love it!

Great recipe!! I used jarred pesto, rotisserie chicken and jarred roasted peppers all from Costco. Easy to make and my kids loved the meal also. tip: if using jarred roasted peppers, make sure they are well drained and then pat dry with paper towels. It saves time for those busy families on the go!
