Chicken Alfredo

I made this just the other night and it tasted fantastic. Not a light recipe by any means, but delish. I think next time I will add sauteed mushrooms and chopped artichoke hearts. I used penne noodles instead of the traditional linguine noodles. I think they help out with the richness of the sauce. Serve it up with a green salad,steamed broccoli or asparagus.

1 cup butter no substitutes
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups shredded fresh Parmesan
pepper to taste
16 oz pasta

slowly over low heat melt butter with cream, when incorporated add cheese and stir until melted and thickened. Add 2 cups diced chicken. I grill my chicken for this dish, it really adds a lot of flavor. I just sprinkle the chicken with garlic powder and salt and pepper and grill until done. You can do this ahead of time. If your going to all the trouble of heating the grill through on some extra chicken and freeze for another yummy recipe. Toss everything together and serve. This recipe makes a lot, so half it if you don't have company. I made the whole recipe, and my family of 5 was eating it for 2 nights with a little left for lunch.
