To increase the nutritional content of this creamy and fattening dish (of course that's what makes it wonderful), I added steamed broccoli and used whole wheat noodles. The nuttieness of the whole wheat noodles paired well with sauce, and you're arteries will be happy with your efforts.

"Easy and great I added fried onions and fresh chives to the sauce, also some lemon juice to the chicken that I grilled. Very good and fast."

Quick and easy. My family loved it! (To save money and time I used canned chicken.)

Two sugestions: Coat chicken in seasoned flour first. Add crushed garlic to oil. It was delish!

If you REALLY want to make this a heart healthy meal, in addition to using the whole wheat fetuccini noodes, use fat free half and half and butter buds in place of the cream and butter.
