You can use any shape of pasta, but preferably it is linguine, which is mostly used for alfredo.
- 1 cup Chicken, cubed
- ¼ tbsp Salt
- ½ tbsp Black pepper
- 1 tbsp Paprika powder
- 1 tbsp Tomato ketchup
- 4 cup Water
- ½ tbsp Salt
- 1 ½ tbsp Cooking oil
- 1 ½ cup Pasta
- 3 tbsp Butter
- 1 tbsp Garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp Ginger, minced
- 1 Carrot, julienned
- 1 Yellow onion, sliced
- 3 Cherry tomatoes, chopped
- 3 Sweet peppers, chopped
- 1 cup Heavy cream
- ½ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
- Start by chopping all the vegetables and keep them aside, ready for use.
- Now take a suitable glass bowl and add chicken cubes, ketchup, salt, black pepper, and paprika bowl. Mix the chicken well to coat and let it marinate until all other ingredients are ready.
- Take a suitable-sized cooking pot and fill it with 4 cups of water. Place it over medium heat and add ½ tablespoon salt, 1 ½ tablespoon cooking oil. Allow the water to boil then add pasta. Cook until the pasta is cooked, then drain and rinse under tap water. Avoid overcooking the pasta.
- Place a medium-sized wok over medium heat and add 3 tablespoons butter. Stir in 1 teaspoon garlic and 1 teaspoon ginger. Sauté for 30 seconds, then add marinated chicken and sauté on medium-low heat until golden brown.
- Now add all the veggies to the chicken and stir cook for 1 minute. Pour in heavy cream and let the chicken mixture boil on medium heat. Finally, add the cooked pasta and ½ cup parmesan cheese then mix well.
- Garnish with cheese and basil leaves. Serve warm and fresh.
- The longer you marinate the chicken, the better it will taste. I usually leave it in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours for good marination.
- The white alfredo sauce gets thicker once cooked; it is essential to serve it immediately to preserve its texture as well as taste.
- While reheating alfredo, add 2 tbsp of milk or water to regain the saucy texture of the recipe.
