Fettuccine Make-Over

Sometimes being a mom to five is a balancing act. If you are hurried to the point of harried like me, anything to alleviate the time-crunch helps. This is a recipe my kids can't get enough of. I love that it costs under $15 and takes about 15 minutes to prepare. I call it my fettuccine make-over.

You will need:
2 Knorr fettuccine pasta sides
1 stick real butter
2 cloves garlic
Approximately 1 teaspoon Garlic salt
Fresh broccoli, freshly trimmed
4 Fresh chicken breasts or Frozen chicken breasts, thawed
Seasoned salt

Begin by peeling and cutting the garlic into thin slivers.
In a large pan (I use a wok) sauté butter, broccoli, garlic, and garlic salt. Cook until broccoli is still firm, but cooked enough so that a fork can cut through it easily. Set aside. 

Slice chicken breasts into slivers (think fajita-sized). Season the meat to your liking with the seasoned salt (a girl's best friend) and pepper.
Add to the broccoli and sauté at medium heat until chicken is tender, turns white and almost cooked through. Set aside.

In a separate pan, prepare the fettuccine sides according to the package instructions. When complete, add to your wok and sauté until chicken is thoroughly cooked. All done!! You may choose to add a small amount of milk, depending on how thick you like your sauce. This is a fast and easy recipe (reminds me of the fettuccine at of one of our fave spots, Fazoli's, yum) that your family will be sure to enjoy.
