Thick creamy Alfredo sauce is extremely comforting and always a favorite in the kitchen! So delicious & easy, ideal for an evening meal!
I like fettuccine Alfredo because the creamy sauce has a velvety texture and is very comforting. When it’s cold in winter, it smells of garlic and chicken that makes the whole house warm and relaxing.

Griddle Butter Chicken
Griddle butter chicken is the BEST!! And it’s so easy to make. Use chicken breast, chicken tenders, or chicken breast pieces.
Season with your favorite seasonings and place on a hot lightly greased griddle. Cook chicken for several minutes and then flip over.
Top with a dollop of garlic butter and let cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. For the full recipe go to Griddle Butter Chicken.
Let the chicken rest for several minutes. Sliced chicken is the perfect topper when you make chicken fettuccine Alfredo recipe.
How to Make Fettuccine Noodles
This griddle grilled chicken Alfredo recipe calls for fettuccine noodles, but you can use any noodle of your choice such as angel hair pasta. I am making a one-pound box of regular fettuccine noodles.
In a large pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a rolling boil. If desired, salt to taste. Once the water is boiling, add pasta and return back to a boil making sure to stir right away and then stir occasionally. Do not cover the pot while boiling.
Cook the fettuccine noodle for 11 to 12 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached. When the noodles are fully cooked, remove from the heat and drain into a colander.
If serving right away, rinse the cooked pasta with hot water but if you are making the noodles ahead of time rinse them in cold water. Drain all the water off and store until ready to use.
Some people like to drizzle some olive oil on your pasta to prevent sticking. I don’t like to add extra fat because if you have rinsed the noodles properly, you won’t need to add anything.
Fresh fettuccine noodles are best, but this step can be done a day or two ahead of time.
How Long Does It Take to Cook Fettuccine Noodles?
Dried fettuccine noodles cooking time varies according to the brand however generally they are cooked between 8-12 minutes until al dente. Some people like the reserved pasta water to add to the Alfredo sauce but I don’t use any pasta water in the chicken Alfredo recipe.
How to Make Alfredo Sauce on a Blackstone Griddle
Once you learn how to make Blackstone Griddle Alfredo sauce, you will want to make it again and again!! Gather all the ingredients to make the chicken fettuccine Alfredo sauce.
Preheat the Blackstone Griddle to medium heat. Cook the fettuccine noodles and the butter chicken pieces before starting the sauce. This can be done up to a couple of days before making the sauce.
Cook at least two minutes while continuously whisking to prevent burning on the bottom. Start adding milk (in stages) as you continue whisking.
Do not add too much milk because it will make it harder to get the flour lumps out. Continue adding milk until you have added a couple of cups.
Blackstone Griddle Alfredo Sauce
Add the Kraft bottled grated parmesan cheese and whisk to combine as you continue cooking the Alfredo sauce. Next, add in the freshly grated parmesan cheese and whisk to combine.
I like to add both the Kraft grated parmesan cheese and also the freshly grated parmesan cheese. The sauce will thicken from the cheese so you will want to add more milk too thin out if desired.
Add more cheese, salt, pepper, or milk if needed to reach the desired sauce consistency. Remove from the griddle heat and serve warm with your noodles and griddle chicken pieces.
You will want the Blackstone Griddle grilled chicken Alfredo recipe to be a little on the thinner side because the creamy sauce will thicken as it cools.
What Can I Add to Alfredo Sauce?
Parmesan cheese is an important component of an amazing chicken fettucine Alfredo sauce flavor! But the garlic is scrumptious! Consider one of the following to add to the sauce.
- Steamed Broccoli – A family favorite!!
- Add in Heavy Cream – For a richer flavor, combine with the milk.
- Lemon Zest or Lemon Juice – Just a splash or a little bit of zest will do.
- Spice Up the Seasonings – Nutmeg, Garlic Powder, Cayenne Pepper, Smoked Paprika, or Kosher Salt.
- Diced Fresh Herbs – Chopped Parsley, Basil, Mint, etc.
- Cream Cheese – Add a couple of ounces as you are adding the other cheeses.
- Substitute Cooked Shrimp for the Griddle Chicken
- Switch up the Pasta – You don’t have to use fettuccine noodles, use bowtie pasta, spiral pasta, etc.
- Cooked Asparagus Pieces
- Add Diced Ham Pieces
- Sautéed Sliced Fresh Mushrooms
- Sun Dried Tomatoes
- A perfect side dish is a slice of garlic bread!
How to Store Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe with Chicken
Store leftover fettuccine Alfredo in an airtight container for up to 6 days. Can be stored all in one container or store in separate containers.
Reheat in the microwave using one-minute intervals, making sure to stir in-between. Use a small saucepan on the stove over low heat making sure to stir often to prevent burning.
You can also reheat in a metal bowl on the Blackstone Griddle using low heat. Sauce may be thick while cold. Use a splash of milk until desired thickness is achieved.
How to Freeze Alfredo Sauce
Combine all ingredients and freeze in small freezable container for up to one month. Reheat in the microwave, in a saucepan on the stove, or a metal bowl on the Blackstone Griddle.
Don’t Have a Blackstone Griddle
If you don’t have a Blackstone Griddle, then you can still make this Alfredo sauce. Just use a medium saucepan on the stove over medium heat to make the Alfredo recipe as described above.
Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe with Chicken – FAQ
If you like creamier and thicker sauces, you may use thick heavy whipping cream instead of milk or a mixture of half milk and half cream.
If desired, sauté finely chopped white onion in a little bit of butter until the onion is soft. Add the cooked onions to the sauce as you are pouring in the milk.
My family favorite is steamed broccoli. Sautéed shrimp is another way to elevate your dish. Fresh garlic and grated parm is also great choices to add.
This Alfredo white sauce starts out with a roux and then the milk and cheese are added. When you are cooking Alfredo sauce, it tends to be thin and runny when it’s cooking and very hot. But this white sauce will thicken as it cools and as it absorbs into pasta.
