Chicken Alfredo

One of my favorite dishes at Olive Garden is the chicken alfredo.  This dish is so easy to make at home that I wonder why people pay so much for it in the restaurant.  This site will give you a video cooking demonstration on how to make Olive Garden's chicken alfredo as well as many other restaurant copycat recipes.

NOTE: The video cooking demonstration is not the original recipe and was placed here for learning the technique.

Olive Garden Recipe for Alfredo Sauce


  • 1-1/2 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 6 egg yolks


  1. Heat milk and cream in a heavy sauce pan until it begins to simmer.
  2. Turn heat off.
  3. Slowly whip in the cheese.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Place egg yolks in a separate bowl.
  6. Slowly whip in a portion of the hot milk and cream mixture.
  7. Slowly add egg yolk mixture back into the sauce pan.
  8. Place back on very low heat.
  9. Stir constantly until the sauce thickens.
  10. Season to taste with salt and pepper
(You can cheat and buy a good jar of alfredo sauce and add some garlic and cheese. The secret is to get the restaurant taste without too much hard work).

For the Chicken

  • 1 small boneless skinless chicken breast per serving.
  • Olive Oil
  • Any seasoning you like


  1. Lightly brush chicken breast with olive oil.
  2. Season with salt and pepper or grill seasoning.
  3. Grill chicken breast until done. (I use my George Foreman Grill)
  4. Set aside to cool a bit.
  5. Slice chicken breast into half inch thick slices.

Serve over hot fettuccine pasta. (I like to add steamed broccoli to my chicken alfredo when I make it at home.)
This recipe serves 4 people.

I don't think it is breaded. Just add your favorite seasoning.
