Easy Kids Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettucine alfredo with chicken and fresh herbs. This article has the Kids Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe.

Kids Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Yes, really, kids can make this! You see that picture above? My little 10-year-old Gabby made it. She prepped, cooked, plated, and garnished. All I did was supervise, watch and guide.

Gabby has developed a big interest in the kitchen and making yummy food. She took my recipe for my Creamy Garlic Alfredo Sauce and adapted it and added her own flair.

The thought of having my baby (yes, I see her as my baby still) handle sharp knives, my gas stove, boiling water, and frying pans frightened me.

I’m not going to lie.

But, seeing the accomplishment in her eyes and a sense of self-development and pride right before my eyes allowed me to feel more at ease and very proud.

Gabby loves my “Goodness Pasta”, which she calls it. It’s a creamy, garlicky Alfredo sauce with pasta. Since she is a meatatarian, she wanted her protein!

Make It Fresh

While Gabby is just a novice in the kitchen, she is getting better and better. She has a few signature recipes up her sleeve and she’s much more comfortable in the kitchen now.

With everything, practice makes perfect and she’s on her way. Of course, we all know the saying that you need to dress for the job you want right?

Stylin’ In the Kitchen

You will be surprised at what your kids can do if you let them spread their wings a little. With that said, I teach Gabby all I know in the kitchen and when you cook, you definitely need the right equipment.

Gabby and I had the chance to try these out in the kitchen (YES, we totally match), and let me tell you, the boost of confidence this super fabulous apron gives you is out-of-bounds!
