Spicy Chicken and Spinach Fettucini

Back in the day Boston Pizza used to have a spicy chicken and spinach fettucini that they ended up taking off the menu.. I was so disappointed because that was my favorite thing to order there!

So I naturally just tried to make it at home myself. :)

This is a super easy recipe and is really quick to make, you use a jar of pre-made alfredo sauce, but you can make your own from scratch if you like. I prefer to use the jar of sauce because it's a lot lower in points than making it myself. I personally use Classico garlic alfredo sauce (only 2 WW points for 1/4 cup!!).

You can amp up the spice if you like by adding more, or if you don't like it as spicy you don't have to add as much. I like it to have just a little bit of kick to it!

This makes about 4 servings.

2 chicken breasts (cooked and diced)
1 jar of Classico garlic alfredo sauce (or whatever brand you prefer)
1/2 box of fettucini
2 tbsp buttter
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 of a small sweet onion (diced)
1 big handful of baby spinach
1/4 cup hot sauce (I use Franks red hot & thick sauce)
Parmesan cheese for sprinkling

Start by cooking your chicken (however you like) I always bake mine in the oven.

When your chicken is about 15 mins away from being done, begin making your sauce and boiling your noodles.

Pour the jar of alfredo sauce into a medium sized saucepan and set over low heat.

Melt your butter in a medium sized pan over medium-low heat. Add your onion and saute for a few minutes until it starts to get soft, add your spinach and grate the cloves of garlic finely overtop of the spinach and onions. Saute until the spinach is wilted. Add them to your sauce and stir in well. Add your hot sauce (a bit at a time, testing for desired taste). Stir the sauce every couple of minutes while you wait for your chicken and noodles to finish cooking.

Once the chicken is cooked cut it into bite sized chunks and toss into the sauce. Mix in, coating the chicken completely.

Pour the sauce over your cooked noodles, top with a bit of parmesan cheese and enjoy!!
