This Homemade Chicken Alfredo is better than any copycat Olive Garden recipe you will find on the internet. Give this recipe a try...you won't regret it.

Over the years I have tried recipe after recipe that claims to be a copycat recipe of Olive Garden’s Alfredo sauce. Each time, I have been disappointed that it just didn’t taste right, was too watery or didn’t turn out at all. It has been a quest of mine to replicate the recipe that I have loved all these years for WAY less than heading to the Olive Garden every time I wanted to enjoy my favorite dish.

After so many unsuccessful attempts at finding the recipe, I decided it was time to bypass the recipe sites and come up with my own variation of this recipe and it paid off!! I was shocked that I had nailed it on my first try alone…this Alfredo sauce is actually better than Olive Garden. Could that be possible!?!?
