Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook 1/3 cup cilantro, garlic and jalapeno in 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Add stock, tequila and 3 tablespoons lime juice. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until reduced to a paste like consistency; add cream and reduce by ½ cup. Set aside.
  • Prepare rapidly boiling, salted water to cook pasta; cook until al dente,8 to 10 minutes for dry pasta, approximately 3 minutes for fresh. Pasta may be cooked slightly ahead of time, rinsed and oiled and then "flashed" (reheated) in boiling water or cooked to coincide with the finishing of the sauce/topping.
  • Melt remaining butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat
  • Add soy sauce, remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice and chicken. Sauté until chicken is partially cooked, about two minutes
  • Add onion and peppers, stirring occasionally until the vegetables begin to wilt
  • Add tequila/lime cream and bring the sauce to a boil; boil gently until chicken is cooked through and sauce is thick (about 5 minutes). At this point, the sauce should be a deep brown, and quite aromatic
  • Add the fettuccine noodles and coat well
  • Transfer to serving dish and garnish with fresh cilantro
  • Serve family style or transfer to serving dishes, evenly distributing chicken.

    I have never used this website for recipes and I must admit that I am skeptical. There are only 3 reviews and all 3 give 5 stars. Yet, the very first step instructs, "In a medium size sauté pan, over high heat, add olive oil and garlic." Uh, well, cooking 101 teaches us that olive oil is to NEVER be used on high heat as it will burn. The hilarity continues with, "Remove scallops and let rest on towel." This, after giving ZERO indicator of how long the scallops are to sear and how they are to be seasoned. Then they are to "rest on towel"??!! Can't say I've ever rested ANY cooked item on a "towel". I am guessing that this website is not the most reputable source for good recipes.

    Ray your professional cooking background is demonstrated by your technique in both preparation and execution of this fantastic recipe. The vivid colors from the assortment of peppers makes for an attractive dish, and and lime and flamed gold tequila add depth to this Fettuccine Recipe.
