Chicken Lime Fettuccine

1 lb fettuccine pasta, cooked
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus some for garnish
2 Tbs minced garlic
2-4 Tbs minced jalapeno peppers (I used 4-5 Tbs canned green chili peppers)
3 Tbs butter
1/2 cup chicken broth
2-4 Tbs fresh lime juice
3 Tbs soy sauce
1 1/4 lb chicken breast-cubed
1/4 red onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced (I used 1 1/2 green total because thats what I had)
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

In medium saucepan, saute cliantro, garlic and jalapeno peppers in 2 Tbs butter over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and most of the lime juice. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until reduced to a paste-like consistency. Set aside. Marinate chicken in soy sauce and remaining lime juice for 5-10 minutes. Cook and set aside. In medium sized saucepan, saute onion and bell peppers with remaining Tbs butter for a few minutes. Add the lemon paste and cream. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened. Stir in chicken and pasta. Garnish with cilantro. Delicious!

This really is one of my favorite pasta dishes! I use half cream, half milk to make it healthier, and it still turns out great.
