Fried chicken meets an Italian classic! We smashed together two of our favourite things: fried chicken and fettuccine alfredo! We know we sparked your curiosity on this one, so here’s how we did it!

Let’s start with fettuccine pasta in a creamy alfredo sauce, topped with bacon crumbles, grated parmesan cheese and herbs, all stuffed in a savoury panko-fried chicken taco shell with a garlic parmesan swiss stick.

Bring a napkin or two… you’re going to need all hands on deck for this one. Bon appetit!
