Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Creamy chicken alfredo is simply a classic. This has long been a favorite of mine since childhood. It’s one of those dishes I always got (still get) at restaurants. Turns out it’s really not all that difficult to make yourself.

With a few simple ingredients including heavy cream and parmesan cheese this sauce is smooth and satisfying. If you’ve never made it before I urge you to give it a try. I promise it will become an instant favorite.

This recipe is also super flexible! You don’t have to use chicken; try it plain or with shrimp. Throw in some veggies or you can smother them on the plate. With any kind of noodle or none at all, there are so many drool-worthy options!
