Progresso™ Recipe Starters creamy Parmesan basil cooking sauce

I picked up a couple different Progresso Recipe Starters last time I went grocery shopping. 

I loosely went by the recipe under the label tonight.

8 oz uncooked fettuccine (used bowties instead)
1 package (1 1/4 lb) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
2 tablespoons butter or margarine (used coconut oil instead)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can (18 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy Parmesan basil cooking sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup whipping cream or half-and-half (used milk instead)
 
Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package.
 
In 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Add butter and garlic; cook until garlic is softened. Stir in cooking sauce, Parmesan cheese and cream. Simmer 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until well blended.

Serve over fettuccine.

I also steamed some broccoli and served it on the side.  But the sauce tasted pretty good so I just mixed it in the leftovers.  I don't think the milk made it any less thick and creamy and would use that again.
