Jerked Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Jerked Chicken Alfredo

Description

Grilled jerk chicken and fettuccini pasta are served over a jerk-seasoned alfredo sauce complete with pineapple and bell peppers, making this a dinner to remember.

Ingredients

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, or more to taste
  • 5 tablespoons hot Jamaican jerk seasoning, divided
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ medium yellow onion, sliced
  • ½ medium yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, sliced
  • ½ medium orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar Alfredo sauce
  • 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks with juice, divided
  • 1 (16 ounce) package dry fettuccine pasta
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed in a garlic press

Instructions


  1. Rub chicken breasts with about 3 tablespoons of jerk seasoning and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and peppers and saute until nearly tender, about 3 minutes. Combine Alfredo sauce with remaining 2 tablespoons jerk seasoning and 1 ounce pineapple juice. Stir mixture into the skillet, reduce heat to low, and let simmer.
  3. In the meantime, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Add fettuccine to the pot of boiling water and cook until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Add garlic and pineapple chunks to the sauce. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Return heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend as desired.
  6. Drain pasta and keep warm. Grill the chicken until the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Slice into strips.
  7. Plate the pasta and chicken and cover with the sauce.
