Me & my friends have created a weekly dinner & I have NO idea what to make!! I found a copycat Olive Garden Fettucini Alfredo Recipe but I’ve never tried it & am kind of scared to!
Can you share some good recipes?! I love chicken, pasta, steak…I am NOT a seafood or veggie fan. Thanks so much!!

I’m not sure what a copycat recipe is, but we’ve been making this roast chicken and it is easy and AMAZING. We’re too lazy to buy a whole chicken and cut it up, so we buy one already cut up.

Thank you Dana!!! I was worried that some people might not know what I’m talking about…it’s basically a recipe that you copy from a restaurant somewhere!

I made this casserole, Chicken Spaghetti, from The Pioneer Woman and it was a HUGE hit. Definitely will be making more of this.

Don’t be scared of the Olive Garden recipe, at least if you got it off of their website! I’ve made it before and it’s GREAT! They have a bunch of other recipes on their website too and all the ones I have tried are fabulous 🙂

Thank you Ejs! That looks yummy!! I LOVE chicken recipes! 🙂
Roddy: Did you bake it immediately, or did you refrigerate for a few days???

Not from a restaurant, but try this:
asparagus, goat cheese and lemon pasta
You probably won’t even mind the asparagus when it’s cooked with the pasta and in the sauce 🙂
Also, if you really want to wow them, try making smashed cauliflower! I know, I know, you said no veggies… but it doesn’t taste like a vegetable at all! Here’s my recipe, which I’ve modified beyond belief so I won’t bother linking to the original, haha:
-1 head of cauliflower
-3 c chicken broth/stock (or water and bouillon) – approximate
Clean head of cauliflower and remove all leaves. Dice (stem included) into small pieces. Dump the whole thing into a sauce pan and barely cover with chicken broth. You don’t want too much liquid, just enough to cover it all.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes uncovered, until the cauliflower is very soft. Remove from heat, drain off excess liquid (there shouldn’t be much).
-3 T butter
-1/3 c grated parmesan cheese
-salt and pepper to taste
Mash as you would potatoes until smooth. Serve hot.
*Note: If you want a slightly creamier texture, you can add one small potato, diced, boiled and mashed with the cauliflower.

Oh, and the easiest chicken marinade you will EVER find… and it’s DELICIOUS!
Easy Chicken Marinade
Place washed, trimmed chicken breasts (or whatever) in a Ziploc bag. Cover with:
-2 parts oil
-2 parts (dark) vinegar
-1 part soy sauce
(about 1c total marinade for 2-3 chicken breasts)
Let marinade 2-3 hours. You can freeze chicken in this marinade as well, or let frozen chicken thaw in it for 24 hours. Bake, grill or dice and saute chicken until the center is not pink.
ETA: Let me know if you’d like some simple but delic dessert recipes… I’ve got a few that I picked up when I was learning to cook that I still use because they’re that good!

I don’t know if Kelseys Restaurant is in the US, but this dip is dynamic! It’s perfect for parties 🙂
At the restaurant they serve it with deep fried pita slices… *drool*

if you like zuppa toscana from olive garden, this recipe has it exactly right!
it tastes even better when I make it at home because I can use spicy italian sausage for an extra kick 🙂
