The creamy and satisfyingly delicious quality of chicken pasta alfredo is legendary. It can also be quite filling with our delicious fettuccine pasta mixed with chicken chunks. Another noteworthy feature of this recipe? It’s quite simple to create!
It is a short and simple cooking method compared to many other pasta dishes because we will primarily be boiling and combining our components together. This Filipino version, on the other hand, streamlines how we cook the dish with fewer ingredients but just as much thrill and taste!
What does Filipino Chicken Pasta Alfredo taste like?
Because of the rich sauce, our meal has a lovely buttery aspect to it. You’ll notice the garlic and parmesan cheese effortlessly melting into the richness. But what I enjoy about this Filipino version is the taste boost provided by our chicken flakes in oil. These are ideal for complementing the somewhat salty flavor of the chicken.
And because this isn’t a particularly tasty dish, you can anticipate it to be well-received by the majority of diners! We can joyfully bring chicken pasta alfredo to family gatherings because it is already so popular. Just wait till everyone gets a taste of this delectable Filipino rendition!
How to Make Filipino Chicken Pasta Alfredo
1. Cooking the pasta
Making our fettuccine pasta – 1 pound of this is required. Simply follow the package instructions for optimal pasta cooking. Set this aside so we can go to work on our sauce!
2. Creating the pasta sauce
Cooking with our butter, onion, and garlic – To begin, take 2 tablespoons of butter and place it in a cooking pot. Apply some heat to allow it to dissolve. After the butter has melted, add 3 minced garlic cloves and 1 diced onion. Sauté these ingredients together until the chopped onions are tender.
In order to include the chicken and cream, first heat 300 grams of CDO Chicken Flakes in oil for 2 minutes before combining everything. After that, add in your 500 mL of all-purpose cream. Wait for it to come to a boil before turning the heat down low.
Adding parmesan cheese – We’ll simmer the sauce for a little longer, stirring every now and then. Simply repeat this process until the sauce reaches the desired thickness. Then stir in 34 cup of parmesan cheese. Continue to whisk this into the mixture.
3. Putting it all together!
Placing the pasta in the pot – Simply take the previously cooked fettuccine pasta and place it in the cooking pot with the sauce.
Toss the pasta and sauce together – Then toss this into the pot so the sauce is uniformly distributed for the pasta. Then, for some more spice, sprinkle on some chopped parsley. You may now simply take the entire dish and place it in your preferred container. I like to do this in a pasta bowl.
And there you have it! You can offer your delectable serving of Filipino Chicken Pasta Alfredo to the entire family! Want to see other meals that would complement this filling dish?
