  • Chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • a serving of dried fettuccine

Step 1

Boil up some water and a good pinch of salt to it. Toss in your pasta. That's going to take about 10-12 minutes to cook, and you want the chicken and pasta to be done at the same time, so you've got a few minutes to kill.


Step 2

Cover the chicken breast with a piece of waxed paper and beat it with the flat side of your mallet / hammer until it is an even 1/2" thick.


Step 3

Heat up a frying pan over medium heat (6 of 10, if you've got that). Add a little olive oil. When the pan is ready, the oil will smoke. Put the chicken breast in, smooth side down and let it sit. Wash your cutting board now.


Step 4

You've got a few more minutes here too. About 3-4 to be precise. If you're not wearing pants, you really should put some on. Spattering oil can really sting. Flip the chicken once is is browned on that side. 3-4 minutes left while the chicken finishes up.


Step 5

When the chicken is done, the pasta should be about done. Drain the pasta and pull the chicken off. Turn the heat on the pan to low and dump the pasta in.


Step 6

Add the butter and cream, and shake it all about. If the the cream goes crazy boiling, take the pan off the heat because you can burn it.


Step 7

Add the cheese.


Step 8

That just needs to cook a bit until the cheese melts, just keep an eye on it while you cut the chicken into strips. You did wash that cutting board before you put cooked chicken on it right?


Step 9

When the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked, plate the pasta and put the chicken on top. If you've got some flat leaf parsley, that's a great way to add some color to the dish.
