Ingredients
  

  • 32 ounces alfredo sauce, try our homemade Olive Garden alfredo sauce!
  • 2 cups chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 8 ounces fettuccine noodles, uncooked
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, optional
  • 8 ounces pre-cooked or rotisserie chicken
  • grated parmesan cheese and parsley, for garnish
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
 

  • Place alfredo sauce, chicken broth, and pasta in a 12-inch skillet.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Continue simmering until pasta is cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • For an extra creamy pasta, stir in cream cheese until melted and combined.
  • Top with chicken, grated parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Want to make your own Alfredo sauce? It’s easier than you think! Here’s our copycat Olive Garden alfredo sauce recipe!
  • Al dente is the ideal consistency for pasta. The pasta will be tender and will still have a slightly firm texture when you bite into it.
  • If you would like to thin out the sauce a bit, add hot water to the pan and stir until the sauce is smooth.
