BBQ Chicken Fettucine

Here's a real quick and simple meal for ya. Not to mention deeelicious. It's a fun twist on traditional alfredo with bold flavor and a little spice. It's not often I repeat recipes, but this is one i've made a couple times now, so that's telling you somethin.

BBQ Chicken Fettucine
adapted from Patio Dadio BBQ

1/2 lb Fettucine
3 Grilled boneless/skinless chicken breasts, sliced in 1/4" slices
1 can (14.5 oz) Diced tomatoes with onion and green pepper
1 jar (15 oz) Classico Four Cheese Alfredo
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup Water
2 tsp Hot sauce
1 tsp Smoked paprika
1/2 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
1 9. oz bag fresh spinach

Cook the pasta according to the package directions while you prepare the sauce.
Heat a large pan over medium-high heat and add the can of tomato/onion/pepper. Saute until about half of the liquid has reduced, then add the chicken. Continue sauteing until almost all of the liquid has evaporated.
Reduce the heat to medium and add all of the remaining ingredients, except the pasta. Cook this for about five minutes, stirring occasionally. Be careful to not let the sauce scorch. If that starts to happen, reduce the heat.
Add the drained pasta to the pan and toss well for several minutes. You want the sauce to nicely coat the pasta without becoming too dry. If it starts to get too dry, just add a splash or two of milk. Follow TawnyAlexander on Twitter


  1. I love that you made a Patio Daddio recipe. He has some pretty amazing stuff, and I'm now dying to try this! (His Grilled Malibu Chicken is still one of my favorite things.)

    And... I didn't know you had a Twitter account until now. I clicked over to follow you and I wonder if you're account has been hacked? The last several tweets don't really sound like things you'd say.

  2. I tried the malibu chicken too when I saw you post it. It was really really good.

    I made that twitter acct. a really long time ago and haven't logged on since. I got an email a while back from Twitter that said they changed my pw because the account got hacked or something but I haven't done anything with it.

  3. Thanks for trying the recipes, and for your kind words.

  4. This really looks delicious with lots of twists. I'm definitely craving for a plate of that right now. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a must do recipe this weekend since I got my Food Safety Certification.
