Chicken Tequila Fettuccini Recipe
Red, yellow and green bell peppers reflect the vibrancy of this creamy chicken fettucini with jalapenos, garlic and cilantro. Tequila and lime give a unique finish.
This recipe was lovely!! However, I have a few suggestions that might take it from great, to FANTASTIC!! 1) Boiling chicken often gives it a dry, less succulent, texture and flavor. I would suggest grilling the chicken in a pan, cutting it into cubes, and tossing it into the sauce once it has thickened. If time allows, you might like to marinade it in some lime juice, and maybe even a bit of tequila (along with the soy sauce). I found that I needed to add a little extra lime juice to the sauce... so definitely taste test before serving. If you like your food spicy, don't rely on the number of jalapenos given in the recipe to satisfy your craving for kick. Add more. If you're truly courageous... add some habanero... but that's only for the truly brave and daring!! Otherwise I loved the recipe, I just thought the chicken could be a little more moist and flavorful. Fantastic dish. My italian father is very picky about "creative pasta" dishes... and he loved it!!
This is a great recipe. I made it for dinner guest recently and one actually said she would give it 5 stars because it was so good! I told her that it really did get 5 stars!! It has a lot of flavor, but isn’t too spicy. It’s just right!
These 5-star recipes call for a generous splash of tequila, which adds flavor of its own to the dishes while also drawing out flavors from other ingredients -- that's one of the secrets of cooking with alcohol! It coaxes out the best from other ingredients.
This is so rich and filling that one serving goes a long way. Crusty bread and a salad is all this creamy dish needs to make a complete and hearty meal.

If you're looking for a quick and easy dinner for 2 ready in 30 minutes, try this easy chicken fettuccine with a creamy sun-dried tomato sauce.
This spicy, marinated broiled chicken dish is the same as that of a well-known restaurant chain's Tequila Lime Chicken. Enjoy! Serve with rice and pico de gallo salsa, if desired.
Seasoned chicken breasts are grilled, sliced, and served over fettuccine pasta with a cooked corn and tomato salsa. There's a bit of Cajun heat in this recipe.
