This recipe is really delicious. I have to say this is relatively simple. I'm 18 and I don't exactly know how to cook. However my parents are away at the moment so I cooked this for 5 of my siblings. They love it too! I gave this a 4 star because I seriously think that it contain WAAY TOO MUCH BUTTER! I think 1 cup of butter is all you need for cooking the fettuccini and the chicken. I'm finding ways to make the chicken have more flavour though. Read More

This turned out kind of gritty in my opinion and a little too cheesy if you ask me but cheese lovers like my boyfriend thought it was delicious. I probably would've added some more chicken too to help balance the noodles out. Read More

I cooked the chicken with some minced garlic and substituted fat free ricotta and reduced fat parmesan chese. There was a slightly grainy texture but it wasn't a big deal. There was plenty of sauce and I was told it heated up well the next day. Overall it was a wonderfully rich dinner though if I was making it for someone who didn't love cheese as much as my boyfriend and I I would likely reduce the amount of ricotta. I will be making it again! Read More

I fed this to my husband and 2 other Marines and they LOVED it. It tasted JUST like the Crab Alfredo from Red Lobster only with chicken. Maybe next time I'll try it with crab meat. The only bad part is it is REALLY fattening but good for an occasional treat. Read More

This recipe is so good and so easy I now use the sauce as my base to many many recipes. I sauté veggies and make primavera or I add broccoli to make a one pot meal. This is a versatile versatile recipe and my guests always love it no matter what I do. It is so fast I can make it without missing too much of the party! Read More
