Are you ready to give a chicken fettuccine alfredo from scratch recipe a try? Check out our recipe below:


  1. Cook your fettuccine al dente according to the instructions on the package — do not overcook your pasta. Drain it and set it aside.
  2. Add the cooking oil to a frying pan and turn to medium heat. Cook the chicken until you don’t see any more pink. You can make sure the chicken is cooked by cutting into a piece. Once the chicken is done, set it aside.
  3. Add the butter to the pan you used for the chicken. Once the butter is melted, add the minced garlic. Sauté the garlic over medium heat until it is golden brown. Add the cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Add the chicken back to the pan and stir until the spices are evenly mixed.
  4. Add a quarter cup of the cream and the egg yolk in a separate bowl. Whisk it until combined and set aside.
  5. Add the remaining 3/4 cup of cream to the chicken mixture and increase the heat to medium-high. As the cream starts boiling, whisk quickly and slowly add the egg mixture. Whisk until all the ingredients are blended well.
  6. Add the parsley. Stir until combined. Slowly add the parmesan cheese, stirring as you add it. Mix the ingredients until the sauce is smooth.
  7. Add the fettuccine and toss the pasta with the chicken and sauce.
