Quick and Easy: Chicken Alfredo with Egg Noodles

Legend has it that the original Alfredo recipe was created in Rome in 1914 by a chef named Alfredo di Lelio. It was one of the most popular dishes at his restaurant Alfredo’s, an establishment frequented by famous silent film stars Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford.

The recipe has changed over the years and is easy to customize to serve your particular tastes. One easy iteration of Alfredo is our delicious Chicken Alfredo with Egg Noodles recipe. To make it an even easier quick mid-week meal, you can buy a jar of ready-made Alfredo sauce and fresh egg noodles.

We recommend serving our chicken with noodles recipe alongside warm garlic bread and green veggies like broccoli or green beans.
