I might even say this recipe is so good you won’t need to order it in a restaurant anymore. This alfredo sauce is quick and easy so you can serve it any night during the week with a salad and some breadsticks.  Your family will enjoy mouthful after mouthful. It is perfect for gluten-free folks, too.

Mushrooms are an option, and I suggest you slice them nice and thin. Thin mushrooms will supplement the alfredo sauce, not make it a mushroom alfredo sauce.  Of course, if you love them thick…go for it!

The chicken alfredo sauce recipe is already gluten-free, but dairy-sensitive folks beware!
