- 8 oz fettuccine pasta
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste

- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the fettuccine according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
- Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips. Season with salt and pepper.
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
- Add the chicken strips to the skillet and cook until they are no longer pink in the center, about 4-5 minutes per side.
- Reduce the heat to low and pour in the heavy cream. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens, about 3-4 minutes.
- Toss the cooked fettuccine in the Alfredo sauce until well coated. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to heat through.
