Delicious! I cooked the chicken in the bacon grease. The rest was exactly the same. This is soooo good. Much better than what I get at the "chain restaurant" where I get a dish very similar to this.
Tried this recipe last night with hubby, and I felt like it fell short of its potential. I used a whole wheat pasta, which changes the flavor, but this is normal for us so I didn't expect it to make that big of a difference. I feel like where this recipe fell flat was using the bottled alfredo sauce. I sampled the dish after step 2 and it was very good, and then after step 3 it was only mediocre. My gut tells me that if you make a yummier, homemade alfredo sauce it would step up the recipe by at least 1, if not 2 stars. Will try it again sometime.
This was really good! I did tweak it a bit for our taste, but overall great! I did as others and cooked the chicken in some of the bacon fat, skipped the butter. Used FF 1/2 and 1/2, added some extra and instead of reducing it down thickened it up with a little flour and milk. Also added a can of peas. Yum!! It's a keeper!
Excellent made as written!! Restaraunt quality I agree. This went together quickly since I had done all my slicing and dicing before I started and was just dropping things in to the pan. I don't know about anyone else, but I am dreaming of how good shrimp would be in this and I also think I will add 3-4 freshly sliced mushrooms next time. Thanks HungryJohn!!
This recipe is fairly involved, at least when I did it. My kids love eating penne pasta, because they can stick their forks in the hole... so I used penne instead. And when I went to the store, I forgot to buy parmesan! Luckily I had some mozarella, which ended up working nicely. I would definitely make this dish again.
Very good! I did find the recommended porportions of pasta and alfredo sauce to be quite off but it was an easy fix. Serving just the two of us, I halved the pasta and doubled the alfredo. I also used fresh garlic and sauted it with the onion in the butter, then proceeded as stated.
Really good. Not very saucy though, which is what I prefer. I think next time I will add a little extra cream, tomato, and alfrdo sauce. I will definitely be making this one again.
this was very good. used parmesan in place of asiago, which worked fine. it was a very nice meal, will make again.
