Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Dark meat is ideal for slow cooking. Chicken thighs will maintain their flavor and tenderness through long simmering, while chicken breasts often become dry and stringy.
  • If your container of Alfredo sauce is larger than 16 ounces, measure 2 cups for this recipe.
  • Try spaghetti or linguine in place of the fettuccine.
  • Bake Pillsbury ® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls while the fettuccine cooks. A tossed green salad and melon wedges complete the menu.
