Kelly's Chicken Fettuccini Fernando

I LOVED this dished that a local Mexican restaurant called the "Hacienda" used to serve, until they changed chefs, and it was AWFUL! So, I went home and came up with my own, (better!), version! At least in MHO!! It's like a Mexican-Style Fettucini Alfredo. REALLY good!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly season the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder. And very lightly with cumin.
  2. Then very lightly brown chicken in butter and oil on all sides, reduce heat, add onion, green pepper, and ¼ cup water.
  3. Cover and simmer til chicken and vegetables are done, about 12-15 minutes.
  4. Add mushrooms during last 5 minutes.
  5. Drain, then add rest of ingredients, (except fettuccini), adding just 1 cup of the cheese.
  6. Simmer this on LOW just til heated through, *do not boil or it might separate.
  7. Serve over, (*or mix in), fresh (cooked) fettucini noodles. Top/garnish with last of cheese, and chopped parsley if desired.
  8. Cover and let set 5 minutes til cheese has melted, or pop into the oven for a few minutes.
  9. Serves 4-6.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was very tastey. I only used 2 chicken breast and it was plenty. There is definately 2 meals there for the 4 of us. It took a while to heat all the after the adding the pasta so next time i might make ahead and heat in the oven. Other then that great recipe. Thanks for the post.
