Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo  Recipe

Classic Fettuccine Alfredo is always a family favorite. This Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo is a perfect copycat of the Olive Garden’s Chicken Mushroom Alfredo. It's so perfect, I cannot tell the difference.

This recipe uses my 5-Minute Alfredo Sauce. It’s such a simple recipe to make, and turns out cheesy, creamy, and full of spice and flavor. In fact, Alfredo sauce is so perfect that we serve it as a dipping sauce.

Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo

When I’m looking for a meal that everyone in my family will love, this classic chicken Alfredo is always a hit. Everyone always fills their plates and enjoys every creamy bite.

The mushrooms are optional. If someone in your family doesn’t like mushrooms, leave them out. I think they add an earthiness and delicious flavors. Try it and see what you think.

What is Fettuccine?

Fettuccine describes the long, flat noodles. They resemble spaghetti noodles, except they are flat instead of round.

Can you prepare the Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo ahead of time?

Yes, you can make the entire dish ahead of time and store it in the freezer or the refrigerator. Here are some tips:

  • To Freeze Chicken Alfredo: Prepare the entire meal according to the instructions. Put everything in a casserole dish, then seal it airtight and label it before putting it in a freezer. It should last for about 3 months.
  • To Thaw Chicken Alfredo: Put the casserole dish in the oven and bake it for about an hour at 350F.
  • Refrigerate Chicken Alfredo: This meal will last for about a week in the refrigerator. When you need to reheat it, be aware that since it has real parmesan cheese, the solid will form a solid in the refrigerator. Don’t worry, just reheat it in a skillet on the stove and it will become the cheesy creamy sauce you love so much.

Can I use the leftover chicken?

Yes, you can use the leftover chicken. In fact, this is a wonderful meal for the rotisserie chicken from the store. If you are going to use the leftover chicken, just make sure it's still good. Cooked chicken lasts about 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
