Olive Garden Angry Alfredo with Chicken

The Olive Garden Angry Alfredo dipping sauce is a new appetizer you can get from the Olive Garden. The version served at my local restaurant was served with grilled chicken.

I have a confession to make to you. Hands down the Olive Garden is my favorite restaurant. I know, we all have our guilty pleasures, and for me, the Olive Garden and their irresistible Alfredo sauce is my kryptonite. Honestly, it is how my journey in copycat recipes began. I lived in the country in East Texas, and when we went into Houston for a meal out, I tasted Alfredo sauce for the first time, and I had to recreate this recipe.

So when their appetizer menu featured a new recipe for the Angry Alfredo sauce, well I had to give it a try. Needless to say, I was hooked. What made this recipe really good was the sauce was creamy and filled with all sorts of grilled chicken. For my low carb and keto friends, this is the appetizer you can enjoy at the Olive Garden.

The chicken was grilled, if you can’t grill your chicken, you can pan-sear it and it will work just fine. I know all of us can not grill all year round. I find that if you can’t grill the chicken if you sear it in an iron skillet pan your result will be wonderfully browned chicken.

The ingredients for this recipe are very straightforward. This is really a combination of their famous alfredo sauce with some hot chili pepper and some grilled chicken. They serve this with some lightly toasted baguette. You will also need some Parmesan, cream, butter, chicken, and mozzarella cheese.

    This was sooooo good! I’ve never even had it at Olive Garden, but the recipe sounded delicious so I tried it. I eat keto, so I also made some keto crackers to eat with it. A little tip: I took a raw chicken breast and cubed it, tossed it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder; then cooked it in olive oil and butter in an iron skillet, stirring and flipping often as you would a stir fry. It was ready really fast since the pieces were small. Quicker than cooking whole chicken breasts and then cutting them after cooking. Thank you for the recipe!!!

    The angry alfredo I remember did not have chicken in it and did not have browned mozzarella on top. It was just a fabulous dipping sauce for the bread sticks. Am I remembering wrong or did they change it before it was discontinued.
