DIRECTIONS

  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Roll in flour and shake off the excess. In a heavy skillet, heat butter and brown lightly the breasts on both sides. Add the chicken stock, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • While chicken is simmering, prepare the Cilantro Sauce. In a food processor fitted with the steel blade add 2 cups of cilantro, the pine nuts (or almonds or the mix of both), Parmesan cheese and garlic and blend into a paste. Add softened butter and then slowly pour olive oil through the feed tube until mixture is the consistency of heavy cream. Set aside.
  • Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Drain and place on a large platter. Toss with butter. Toss in the Cilantro Sauce, reserving some to use as a spread for the chicken.
  • Place the chicken on a separate platter and sprinkle the remaining fresh cilantro on top.
  • Serve the remaining Cilantro Sauce on the side. Pass grated Parmesan at the table.
