I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Mitch Brasga
...in your mind.

Or put a different way...’Have a little chicken with your cheese’. When Firefighter/Paramedic Brasga makes this at Station 40 in San Diego, the result is a delicious and very rich alfredo that the crew goes for in a very big way. Notice I chose not to make a joke about the potentially artery-clogging richness of the alfredo and Mitch being a paramedic - I’m above stuff like that. I cut Mitch’s original recipe that he says will feed 10 hungry firefighters in half - but it still makes a lot. Serve over your favorite pasta.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds chicken, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 - 8 ounce packages cream cheese, quartered
  • 1 - 8 ounce container shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 - 8 ounce container shredded Romano cheese
  • 1/4 cup half & half

Directions

  1. Saute garlic and onion with basil, pepper and oregano in olive oil until softened
  2. Add chicken and saute until browned and cooked through - you may need a little more oil
  3. Add cream cheese and allow to melt
  4. Add parmesan, Romano and half & half
  5. Taste it - and if you want to add more cheese, you need counseling.
