What Vegetables Go with Chicken Fettuccine?
Broccoli is always a favorite of mine (whether it’s for chicken fettuccine alfredo or this thai chicken fettuccine recipe), however, in this recipe, I use red bell peppers and matchstick carrots since that’s what I had on hand. Next time I’ll add broccoli and possibly some spinach to add more fiber and greens to this Thai noodle recipe.
