Recipe Notes

Although you can choose your favorite wine but it will be great if you use dry white wine that can be anything like Sav Blanc, Pinot Grigio, etc,

If the cook time becomes higher then the consistency of gravy may gets very thick. To avoid such situation you can add chicken broth as per your demand of gravy and cook for a little.

You can use stored parmesan cheese but it can add more taste if it is fresher.

If you want to learn How to make chicken Alfredo then this is super easy as this dish goes through 3 different ways of cooking; chicken, sauce and the pasta.

For making sauce, I suggest to use your favorite white wine that turns out to be a great in taste. I prefer dry white wine of pinot grigio that is easily available.

For change in taste you can either substitute the heavy cream with the evaporated milk or half and half, both of them give you a brand new taste.

If you really want to enhance the flavor of the dish then go for using freshly grated Parmesan cheese that when melts within the sauce makes it a delightful in taste.
