Food Wishes Recipes: Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe – How to Make Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo – Since it was Loose, You Must Reduce

I usually don’t film things I’m trying for the first time. There is so much set up involved, and time invested when I do one of these video recipes, that it’s just too painful to have something not work and end up with nothing to show for all the effort.

I thought this chicken fettuccine Alfredo recipe was going to fit that description. I’m putting this recipe in the cookbook, and I wanted to try one that uses chicken broth, the same one used to poach the breasts, in place of some of the heavy cream.

I was so sure I had the right proportions that I decided to film it without a test. I was wrong, or as the kids say these days…Fail (which by the way, is getting really annoying, so cut it out).

The dish tasted great; the fortified chicken broth worked perfectly as a partial cream substitute, and I also managed to not use any butter or olive oil – another goal of this recipe. The problem, as you’ll see, is I simply had twice as much chicken broth as I needed.

So, in case I’m not clear in the video. You poach the breasts in 2 cups of broth, but before you continue with the recipe, boil that poaching liquid down to 1 cup and you will be in slightly-less-caloric chicken fettuccine Alfredo heaven.

Also, be sure to undercook the pasta by at least a minute, so you can allow it to absorb the sauce at the end, as it rests covered. The last piece of advice you’ve heard before… DO NOT attempt this recipe unless you have a nice hunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. It’s like the main ingredient, so that green can is not going to cut it. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 4 large servings:
2 large chicken breasts
2 cups low sodium organic chicken broth
1 pound fettuccine
2 cups heavy cream
4 cloves garlic, very finely minced
2 large egg yolks
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley (in summer toss some nice fresh basil in for a little different version)
2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Foodwishes Cooking Shrimp on Pink Salt – Cooking on Himalayan Pink Salt – Shrimp Recipe


Learn how to Cook Shrimp on Pink Salt! Visit http://foodwishes.blogspot.com/2011/0… for the ingredients! Plus, more info and over 500 additional original video recipes. I hope you enjoy this Cooking Shrimp on Pink Salt Recipe.

The actual recipe to this video:

Shrimp Cooked on Himalayan Pink Salt – I Sherpa Hope You Like It!

I’ve always wanted to cook something on Himalayan pink salt, but I just can’t for the life of me tell you why. I knew that flavor-wise there couldn’t be any real difference between cooking on pink salt, and simply seasoning with it, but that didn’t seem to matter. 

Just the idea of cooking on what’s basically a slab of crystal, appealed to some indefinable internal force inside of me. Having said that, I still reserve the right to continue to mock those people that wear crystals for their healing properties, because that’s just nuts.

Anyway, back to these shrimp. As I summarize in the video: it was fun, I’m glad I did it, but I don’t think I would do it again, unless it was for some showy, interactive first course.

There’s no doubt letting your guests cook their own shrimp on hot, pink salt would definitely be a neat way to start off a dinner party.

Above and beyond the Himalayan pink salt experiment, the ultra-simple shrimp preparation seen here can be easily adapted to your trusty non-crystal saute pan.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised how good seared shrimp are with nothing more than a pinch of cumin and cayenne. Just don’t forget the salt! Enjoy.

Note: After you cook on it, the salt block can be scraped clean, rinsed off (even though they said not to), and wiped dry. It’s a completely antiseptic surface and can be reused as many times as possible.

Ingredients:
1 pound large shrimp
1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
salt to taste if using conventional cooking methods
