I absolutely LOVE Olive Garden! My favorite meal is the grilled chicken alfredo. I was thrilled when I found this recipe. I can't wait to try it. Enjoy this classic dish from the Olive Garden with this "copy cat" recipe.
•2 chicken breasts
•salt and pepper
•2 teaspoon olive oil
•8 ounces dry pasta
•2 cups heavy cream
•1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
•1/2 to 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
•1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Brush with oil and then season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Grill 5 to 7 minutes on the first side and then flip the chicken over and grill for another 3 to 4 minutes, or until cooked through.
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Prepare the Alfredo sauce by combining the cream and butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Do not let the mixture come to a boil, but heat until small bubbles begin to form. Add the Parmesan cheese and whisk quickly. Add the garlic powder and continue to whisk. The sauce will thicken after a minute or two.
Cut the chicken breasts into strips. Serve by placing half the pasta on each plate, then topping it with sauce and a sliced chicken breast.
