Everyone should learn how to make chicken Alfredo. Why? It's a classic Italian recipe, its creamy richness is irresistible, and even the picky eaters in your family (you know, the ones who are in the phase of only eating "white" food?) will love it. In fact, that's sort of how Alfredo sauce was invented: Italian chef Alfredo di Lelio created the sauce to appeal to his pregnant wife who had lost her appetite for most foods. It soon became a top seller at his restaurant, Alfredo alla Scrofa. The restaurant, located in Rome, is still doing business today, and still serves their signature Alfredo sauce over chicken and pasta.
