EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Dark meat is ideal for slow cooking. Chicken thighs will maintain their flavor and tenderness through long simmering, while chicken breasts often become dry and stringy.

If your container of Alfredo sauce is larger than 16 ounces, measure 2 cups for this recipe.

Try spaghetti or linguine in place of the fettuccine.

Bake Pillsbury ® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls while the fettuccine cooks. A tossed green salad and melon wedges complete the menu.
