Easy Homemade Chicken Alfredo

I am totally addicted to this Chicken Fajita Alfredo! It only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish! We ate this last weekend, and I am adding it to the menu for this week too. It is seriously that good.

This Chicken Fajita Alfredo has all the flavors of fajitas. It tasted just like the fajitas I order at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I LOVED the addition of pasta and a ridiculously simple alfredo sauce. Pasta + Fajitas = YUM! The whole recipe only has 7 ingredients – chicken, onion, bell pepper, fajita seasoning, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and pasta. NO jarred sauce! Can’t beat that!

How to Make Chicken Alfredo from Scratch

This chicken Alfredo is super easy to make. Start with cooking the pasta. While the pasta cooks, season the chicken, onion, and peppers with fajita seasoning. Sauté the chicken and vegetables in a skillet. Add heavy cream and cook until it thickens. Add the cooked pasta and parmesan cheese. Stir and serve.

Tips for Making Chicken Fajita Alfredo

  • Can use any cut of chicken you prefer – tenderloins, breasts, or thighs.
  • You can substitute shrimp or steak for chicken.
  • Can use more or less bell pepper and onion.
  • Feel free to add mushrooms, tomatoes, or broccoli.
  • Can use gluten-free pasta.
  • It is important to bring the heavy cream to a boil before reducing the heat and simmering for about 5 minutes. Boiling the heavy cream helps it thicken. It should take about 5 minutes total for the cream to start to thicken.
  • Feel free to top the pasta with your favorite taco toppings – cheese, sour cream, avocado, guacamole, tomatoes, salsa.
