Chicken Alfredo

 

Looking to amaze your family with an incredible meal?  Here is one of my favorite recipes!  Every time I make this recipe I feel like we are enjoying something that was made at the most amazing Italian restaurant.  After making this dish a few times, you won’t be able to find a better Chicken Alfredo anywhere.  A friend in college (who worked at a local Italian restaurant) gave me this recipe. He knew the recipe by heart since he had to make it fresh every time he had to go to work.  This is a convenient meal to make since it does not require many ingredients.  My family and I love this recipe and I know you and your family will too.

Start by cooking your chicken.  I bake my chicken breasts in the oven.  Once they are cooked, I cut them into strips and I set them aside.  Next melt your butter in a pan.melting butterNow add a 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese to the butter to make a paste. You may want to pull the pan off the burner for a second while you make the paste so it does not get too hot.

You can also stir in the 1 teaspoon of garlic salt.  Keep stirring over medium heat until the sauce starts to simmer.
