makes 4 servings

8-oz fettuccine pasta
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2-inch strips
3/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
8 Tbsp butter, divided
3 garlic cloves, pressed
2 Tbsp white wine
1 pint heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup packed spinach & kale leaves
Garnish: Parmesan cheese

Fill a stock pot or Dutch oven with the water & stir in the salt. Bring the water to a rolling boil over High heat. Add the fettuccine noodles. Use a pair of tongs to completely submerge the pasta into the water as they soften. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 12 minutes for al dente noodles. Drain the pasta in a large colander. Set aside.

Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium skillet over Medium heat. Cook the chicken 4 minutes per side or until it registers 165 degrees using a thermometer. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Add the garlic to the hot skillet & stir vigorously 15 seconds. Deglaze the pan with the wine. Turn off the heat.

Meanwhile, reduce the cream & the remaining 6 tablespoons butter in a large sauté pan over Medium heat. Whisk the mixture occasionally until reduced by 1/3, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the Parmesan cheese until melted. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt, the nutmeg & a smattering of freshly ground pepper. Add the garlic mixture & stir well. Turn off the heat & add the spinach & kale coating well with tongs until it begins to wilt. Add the cooked fettuccini noodles & the chicken. Turn the heat back on to gently warm the mixture if necessary. Combine with the sauce until well coated. Portion between pasta bowls. Garnish, if desired.

How To  Select & Use Garlic In Recipe Applications

It’s always best to choose loose garlic bulbs from bins rather than purchasing them in preportioned packaging. Look for firm bulbs that are heavy in the hand. The skin encasing the cloves should be dry but unbroken. Do not store it in the refrigerator but rather in a cool, dark spot in your kitchen.

The Technique

 Garlic should be prepared for use just before it is needed in recipes. Remove the number of cloves necessary for the specific dish. Use the back of a chef knife or the palm of your hand to smash each one on a wooden board. Once it breaks open, peel away the outer skin. The cloves may then be minced finely with a knife or placed in a garlic press & extracted.
