      Creamy Chicken Pasta

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   4 to 6
Preptime   40

Kosher salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 shallot, chopped
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced, plus chopped leaves for topping
2 carrots, shredded
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
Freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup dry sherry or white wine
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
12 ounces fresh fettuccine
1 cup sugar snap or snow peas, strings removed and thinly sliced

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook until slightly softened, about 1 minute. Add the celery, carrots, thyme, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper and cook until the vegetables soften, about 2 minutes. Add the sherry and cook until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and nutmeg and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.
Add the chicken to the sauce; increase the heat to medium and simmer until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add the gruyere and parmesan and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until the cheese melts and the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes (do not boil). Add the parsley; season with salt and pepper. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook as the label directs. Drain, then add to the sauce and toss. Sprinkle in the peas; serve topped with celery leaves.
