JALAPENO LIME CHICKEN ALFREDO

serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com


Oh good golly miss molly I have done it again! We absolutely love Jalapeño Lime chicken Alfredo. 
It's a fusion of some of my favorite things, jalapenos, limes and alfredo sauce. This dish is also fabulous with shrimp, let me tell you! Delicious! 



I suggest when making this keep the kids and husband away from the kitchen with tasting equipment or it just might not make it to the table! This is always gobbled up sadly with no leftovers for the hubby to take to work! 

Feel free to adjust the spice dependent on how hot your jalapenos are, this time mine were hot so one would do but sometimes I need 3 just to have a little heat.


Add olive oil and butter to a pan. Heat pan over medium-high heat until butter melts. Add onion, garlic, and desired jalapenos. Cook until onions start to caramelize.


Add chicken, cumin and salt. Cook over medium-high heat until chicken starts to lightly  brown.


Add lime juice and reduce heat to low. Simmer until chicken is cooked through.



Add cream and stir to heat cream.


Add hot cooked and drained al dente pasta.


Add cilantro and parmesan cheese.


Toss to coat pasta well.


For a nice serving presentation use tongs and twist pasta to create a nest shape when plating. Use additional cilantro and lime for a garnish.
