Sometimes chicken alfredo can be a little one note. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with that. We mean, cheese? Cream? Butter? If that’s “one note,” call us “Flat Note Freddie Full of Delicious Flavors!” 

But sometimes you want just a little extra “oomph,” to go with all of those rich flavors. And that’s when we reach for sweet paprika, savory oregano, super fruity and peppery white pepper, earthy thyme, spicy cayenne – and the world’s sexiest ingredient – hot smoked paprika! 

All of those ingredients with a little butter and olive oil create a fond on the bottom of the pan that’s ready to become the base of a ridiculously succulent sauce to stir into wide fettuccine noodles, crispy broccoli, and the aforementioned insanely delicious chicken. 

Bonus, this recipe finds it easier to sing and dance because it’s a little lighter and doesn’t have heavy cream for a base. 

Win, win, win! 

So, round up your ingredients, get that cutting board ready, grab your F.N. Sharp Utility Knife and get to chopping! 

You’re going to have a fabulous dinner in no time at all!
