Then grab a bowl and fill it with water and a drizzle of salt, when the water starts to boil add the fettuccine. while that’s cooking heat another tablespoon of olive oil, and cook the chicken that is seasoned with salt and pepper. Cook about 5-7 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked thru, turning the chicken several times. Transfer the cooked chicken to the same bowl as the broccoli. When the pasta is done cooking, add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the cooked chicken and broccoli, and slowly add the Ragu chicken Alfredo sauce to the mix.
