    Zabrina Graves's Note:

    This is a recipe I have been playing with for years and have finally perfected. It's a flavorful spin on your ordinary Alfredo sauce and it only takes about 45 minutes total! I have to make it for my mom every time she is in town.

      Just lovely! The chicken has wonderful flavor - I used about a teaspoon of red pepper, since we like things spicy. I broke my jar of roasted red peppers, so I left them out. I also added a lot more cheese - tasted great! Thanks for sharing!

      This was SO tasty! My house smelled incredible- my dinner guests were impressed! The sauce for the pasta was a little less flavorful than I hoped for but the chicken is absolutely to die for! I will be using the chicken on salads and in tacos that is for sure! It is an added bonus that the chicken cooks from a frozen state so those nights that you don't think ahead you could make the chicken! Wonderful recipe! I will make this one again for sure! Thanks Zabrina~ Made for PAC Spring 08
