Great dish, added a bit more cayenne pepper for a little bit more of a kick...i have made it for 2 groups of people and lots said it was the best Alfredo sauce they have had.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Warm olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Place the chicken pieces in hot oil; cook, turning, until browned on both sides.
  3. Stir in cayenne, white pepper, and garlic. Pour in water, and cook until the chicken is done and the water has evaporated, about 30 minutes.
  4. Stir in butter and saffron threads; cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Add cream cheese, stirring until melted and smooth.
  6. Gradually whisk in cream, smoothing out any lumps. Stir in Parmesan, and cook until the sauce reaches the consistency you like. If it becomes too thick, stir in a small amount of milk.
  7. Serve over bow-tie, rotini, cheese ravioli, or tortellini pasta.
