Chicken & Italian Herb Fettuccine – #15MinuteSuppers

Disclosure: This is sponsored recipe for Gourmet Garden through 15 Minute Suppers. Recipe & opinions are my own.

You know what I hate? I hate when the family asks, “What’s for dinner??” You know…. Because you’ve totally been planning it and working on it all day right? Not at work, or running errands, or picking up and dropping off and picking up again and…. Why shouldn’t you have dinner ready, right? It’s ok super-moms, with our #15MinuteSuppers club, you’ll always have an answer ready to go, trust me. Life changing, :)

Chicken and Italian Herb Fettuccine Recipe - #15MinuteSuppers

Chicken & Italian Herb Fettuccine

I’m a big fan of pasta. More often than not I do a pasta-bake. But there are plenty of nights that I need to get dinner on the table in a hurry, and a baked dish would take WAAAAY too long. So, since pasta is my specialty, and I recently came up with an awesome new recipe using Gourmet Gardens products, I thought I’d share my 15 minute supper recipe so you guys could do dinner in a flash too. Because I totally love you guys. :)

How to Make 15 Minute Chicken & Italian Herb Fettuccine

The ingredients for this are super simple – mostly things you have on hand. Unless maybe you’re the type who haven’t yet heard about the amazingness of Gourmet Gardens. They make it so easy to have fresh herbs/spices on hand even when you can’t grow them yourself, or can’t get ‘em fresh locally. And speaking of local – I try to buy locally made foods as often as I can. We bought half a cow from a farmer here, I love these breadsticks from Seattle International Baking Company, and I am the BIGGEST fan of Tillamook, which is made over in Oregon. {Also, if you can’t buy meat locally, do NOT miss the sales from Zaycon Foods. Best quality and price you’ll find. Awesomesauce, seriously.}

Gourmet Gardens Fresh Herbs make amazing pasta recipes! #15MinuteSuppers

Fresh Made Easy – Gourmet Gardens

Just to give you a little info on these Gourmet Gardens ingredients: They are fresh as all heck, and stay good in your fridge for months, versus actual herbs that will die quickly, which = waste of money. They’re gluten-free {At least all of the ones I’ve tried are – there may be some that aren’t, be sure to check labels if this is important to you.} They’re all made from fully organic ingredients. And they taste amazing. As close to fresh as you can get without picking ‘em in the garden. Also – see in this pic that the pasta doesn’t have chicken on it? That’s because I make up a big batch of the pasta, then have toppings in separate bowls. I love it with chicken, obviously. But if you could eat it as is, or add veggies like steamed broccoli, peppers, peas, asparagus, or whatever you have on hand. Top it with different types of cheese. Serve it with breadsticks or garlic bread, or maybe a salad? Mix it up and enjoy it however you want – it’s a great base to add anything to!

The Chicken & Italian Herb Fettuccine Recipe

This recipe takes just 15 minutes from start to finish – maybe slightly longer when you have kids running around, a UPS guy at the door, little ones who want to “help,” or other distractions. But the actual meal prep is just 15 minutes. And it is gooooood. It’s got a little zing to it – in a good way. Wakes up the taste buds. I think it’s because the fact that the Gourmet Gardens Italian Herb paste is just so darn fresh – almost unexpectedly so. Love it.

Chicken & Italian Herb Fettuccine – #15MinuteSuppers

Ingredients

  • 1 box fettuccine noodles
  • 1/2 cup sour cream - {I seriously recommend Tillamook!}
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese - I used an Italian blend
  • 2 Tbs Gourmet Gardens Italian Herbs
  • 1 Tbs Gourmet Gardens Garlic
  • 1 package pre-cooked grilled chicken, or veggies of choice, or any other leftovers as desired for toppings

Instructions

  1. First, start your noodles cooking in boiling water - cook for about 12 minutes.
  2. Hint: At this point you can also put breadsticks or garlic bread in the oven, or toss together a quick salad.
  3. While you wait, mix up your sauce - add sour cream, olive oil, cheese, and Gourmet Garden seasonings to a bowl. Stir until well mixed. It won't look like a lot - but it is more than enough, trust me :)
  4. Yes, I just put a smiley face in my recipe.
  5. Your noodles are now ready - drain, and mix the sauce into the noodles. Mix well.
  6. Now you can top with the pre-cooked grilled chicken strips, or veggies.
  7. Be sure to sprinkle with more cheese - Italian blend, Parmesan, or Mozzarella are all good choices.
  8. Eat it up and enjoy!

  1. Yep, I hate those “what’s for dinner?” cries, too. If I haven’t planned ahead, then dinner time is such a stress, but I have loved finding SO many amazing quick meals. Way more than I ever thought!

  2. Looks so yummy- love the idea of letting everyone top it how they want. I always seem to have “helpers” making simple things take longer, too!

  3. My little ones have just recently agreed to have “green things” on their pasta- so this should be a hit with the whole fam!

  4. Love the post and love these products!!! I would so love to win! Thanks for the post and giveaway!!!

  5. christina moore says:

  6. This looks heavenly! I might even throw some broccoli in there! Yummy!

  7. I love to cook for my family,this is easy ,tasty and fresh ! Not time consuming !! Thanks !!!

  8. Sandra Beeman says:

    15 minutes to a wholesome meal would be a delight. It normally takes me 45-60 minutes conservatively. I would try at first for the Chicken & Italian Herb Fettuccine. I know we all like chicken very much and it tends to be less expensive than most meats .

  9. Crystal says:

    I hate it when my family asks what’s for dinner. It gets annoying. Great meal. I’m all about quick and easy!!

  10. Love the pictures and I am going to have to try this recipe. Off to pin it now.

  11. Fettuccine Alfredo has always been something I enjoy, but it can take so long to make and sit so heavily. I love this faster, lighter recipe using fettuccine noodles! Love that you can let the whole family customize it, too, since I have a finicky preschooler who is also quite independent and likes to do it “by myself!”

  12. My family would love this! Bonus points for how easy it is….I’m so crazy about those Gourmet Garden spice and I’m a Tillamook fan too.
