Chicken Alfredo Baguette

One of my new year’s resolution was to become better at cooking Italian. I decided I would practice at least three dishes until I perfected them. Of course, this spilled over into my sandwich making.

I’ve spent the past week chasing the perfect fettucine alfredo recipe. The best alfredo recipe is actually the original, and it is very simple.The problem is, you can’t really make it without pasta. So I had to use a modified alfredo sauce recipe for this sandwich. Thankfully, it was still fantastic (the secret is lots of butter. LOTS of butter.)

This is the longest sandwich I have ever made. I measured it before eating and it was 22 inches long. The flavor was great, I ate too much.

It was hard to capture the full length of the sandwich in a photo

  • about a cup of home made alfredo sauce (butter, heavy cream, parmigiano reggiano, salt and pepper)
  • three boneless skinless chicken breasts, seasoned and sauteed in olive oil
  • three strips of prosciutto (did you know this is uncooked pork? holy crap!)
  • four ounces of marinated braided mozzarella
  • chopped parsley

    This looks tempting. Was there anything else you were tempted to add to it? If you did it again, would you do it with the prosciutto or something else?

    Thanks Thatguy. I almost did bacon instead of the prosciutto, I’m sure it would be good that way too.

    If you did bacon, I imagine it would be like the more traditional “Chicken Carbonara” sandwich. I’m no fan of mushrooms, though, I’m an odd picky eater. If I did make something like this, I’d probably have to try it both ways. And maybe a third way, without any meat other than chicken. Just because.

    You’re a total genius. I want to make this awesome looking sandwich, eat it, and then not eat again for 5 days. It looks totally worth it.
