Green Chile Chicken Alfredo

"This is a perfect meal for the weeknights when you need something fast but elegant. This recipe uses a prepared Alfredo sauce; however, if you have more time you could make your own. The recipe was printed in Sabrosa a southwest dining guide."

  1. This was very yummy. I ended up adding some chopped tomatoes, green onions and mushrooms in with the green chiles and it came out wonderful, with just enough spice. We didn't have spinach noodles, but I will try to get some for next time. Thanks for posting!
  2. Very yummy! Everyone loved this even my picky 10 year old. Will double it next time so there are leftovers!!
  3. Good recipe that I will make again. I added a jar of marinated artichoke hearts (drained and chopped). Also I served over whole wheat spaghetti. The next time I make this I will double the green chilis and will use a homemade alfredo. This was the first time I had tried jarred alfredo and won't repeat that.
  4. We really loved this recipe. I used Bertoli Mushroom Alfredo sauce and a 4 ounce can of chopped green chilis (I didn't have fresh ones at my grocery store). My store did not carry the spinach fettuccine, so I used regular fettuccine noodles. I also used 4 garlic cloves and 1/2 tablesoon of freshly ground black pepper in the recipe. I served the meal with a tossed spinach salad. This meal was easy to make and delicious. We will make this part of our regular menu!
  5. Good and easy. Just the way we like it!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
