Serves: 4 servings (about 1 2/3 cups each)
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

 

 
1/2 of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 can (12.5 ounces) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/2 of a 1-pound package fettuccine, cooked and drained




Heat the cream cheese and milk in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat to a boil, stirring constantly.  Stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 5 minutes or until the cream cheese is melted, stirring often.

Add the chicken, peas and fettuccine to the skillet and toss to coat.  Cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.  Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
Flavor Variation: For a more traditional Alfredo sauce, substitute 2 tablespoons butter and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream for the cream cheese and milk.  Proceed as directed above.
Easy Substitution: You can substitute 3 cans (4.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water for the 12.5-ounce can.
