This chicken vegetable fettuccine alfredo recipe is so special to me because it was the first homecooked dinner I made for my hubby almost 11 years ago. I remember I spent hours trying to decided on the perfect dinner for movie night at home.
It had to be something light, yet filling. I wasn’t ready to break out the soulful, throw-down type meals. Fresh always looks and tastes best so I knew I wanted something with lots of fresh veggies. This dish just won me over and him too!
All of the colorful vegetables look so nice together and the homemade Alfredo sauce is divine! If it’s warm outside, I really like this with grilled chicken & vegetable but cooking it on the stovetop works well too!
Watch me make this chicken vegetable fettuccine alfredo from start to finish!

Use your favorite vegetables! I love broccoli and fresh tomatoes!
If Alfredo sauce is too thin, let it simmer uncovered or let it stand. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
If Alfredo sauce is too thick, thin it out with a little chicken broth or reserved pasta water.
Jazz up the Alfredo sauce with mushrooms or fresh minced onion!
