Chicken Tequila Fettuccine Recipe

Hey Lauren,

I’m so happy that I got to cook my favorite meal all time ever for you. This is Ben’s favorite recipe and he’s keeps asking me when am I going to add it to our blog. He invites me over for dinner at his place and when I get there, his counter is full of grocery bags with the ingredients for this recipe so I can cook it for him, hahah. I double up on the sauce because it’s drinkable! I ingredients are such a weird mix, yet genius – the pasta, garlic, and cream are very Italian; the tequila, lime, and jalapeno are oh so Mexican; and the soy sauce gives it an Asian flare. Thanks so much for taking all of the amazing pics.

xoxo,
Jennifer
