Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls Copycat Recipe is a sweetened roll with a thick cinnamon-sugar filling and a cream cheese frosting that you are likely to remember long after the cinnamon roll is gone!

Red Lobster Copycat Cheddar Bay Biscuits are light and flaky, garlicky cheddar drop biscuits glistening with butter and speckled with parsley.  Slightly crisp on the outside and perfectly tender on the inside.  Perfectly moist, tender and delicious. Texas Roadhouse Rolls - fabulous tender sweet rolls slathered in butter that are perfect enough to be a meal in itself.   OK, so I am an admitted carbivore.  But these are the most delicious dinner rolls.  Perfectly sweet and tender.


Olive Garden Copycat Chicken Vino Bianco

4 (4 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 scallions, chopped (divided)
2 Roma tomatoes, diced (divided)
½ medium yellow onion, grated
5 garlic cloves, minced
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ cup lemon juice
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup white wine, (I used a Sauvignon Blanc)
½ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
½ pound dried linguine

In a pie plate or shallow dish, combine ½ cup flour, ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp black pepper. Stir with a fork to blend. Using tongs, coat the chicken breasts in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.

Add oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken in the skillet and cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, turning once between cooking, about 8-10 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.

Add butter, onion and garlic to pan. Cook until onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add ¼ cup remaining flour to pan and whisk to combine. Add cream, lemon juice, wine, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Whisk until is you have a smooth mixure. Add up to 1 cup of pasta water to help create the sauce.

Add cooked pasta, half of scallions and half of tomatoes, stir to combine. Return chicken to skillet and allow it to warm. Sprinkle remaining scallions and tomatoes on top of skillet. Serve and enjoy.

  1. Can I have a sampling of each of these? Please?

  2. This chicken sounds fantastic, Donna. I would have loved to be a taste-tester for this meal!

  3. Such a wonderful round up of great Italian comfort foods! Not sure which one to make first!!

  4. Generally I love to eat chicken recipe. but this recipe also very delicious. I will try it at home.

  5. Just made this now, i've never eaten at Olive Garden as none available here in Hawaii, it came out ok although it needs more salt added to this recipe.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it anon. I would add more salt to taste. The products you use make a difference in the salt content, so I always recommend erring on the side of caution and adding a little more at the end if needed.

  6. just got done making this for dinner tonite! Was very good although the husband said to cut down on the lemon juice a hair as he said it seems to him it dominates the plate alittle. Will cut it down to 1/3 and that should be good instead of 1/2. I have no problems with the recipe. Absolutely Delicious!

  7. If you have ever been to Italy ... this does not taste anything like Italian ! It`s American Italian .

    1. Olive Garden is definitely American-Italian, thanks for pointing that out. Enjoy!

    2. That is true for most dishes though.

    3. I call Olive Garden "General Foods Italian." Which is definitely not to say I haven't eaten there often and loved it. ;-) I'm putting this on my list of recipes to try.

  8. Would have been good but the lemon juice overwhelmed the entire dish!
