Spicy Alfredo Fried Chicken Is Olive Garden’s Latest Hype Creation

The United States is obsessed with hot chicken at the moment, whether it be the fiery heat of Nashville Hot or the spicy sweetness of Hot Honey. Olive Garden’s contribution to the trend makes it even more decadent, as their new crispy chicken tenders are coated in a fiery Alfredo sauce.

A very recent addition to the chain’s appetizers lineup, the Spicy Alfredo Chicken is coated in its namesake sauce. The piquant sauce gets its spice from cherry peppers, which balances with the alfredo in a blend of flavors that is as luxurious as it is picante.

In case you need more decadence on the side, the chicken comes with a side of regular Alfredo, which the tenders can be dipped into for a more delectable version of Ranch Dressing.

An order of the Spicy Alfredo Chicken has a starting price of $8.99, and comes with six tenders.

Olive Garden has found other ways to play with their alfredo as well. They have a new Chicken Alfredo Pizza Fritta on the menu that is essentially chicken alfredo (minus the fettuccine) in a fried pizza pocket. The only extra addition to mix of chicken and alfredo is a three-cheese blend.

It comes with marinara and alfredo for dipping, and is a limited-time dish available for $6.99.

Guy Busted In Undercover Sting Trying To Trade Chicken Alfredo For Underage Sex

A 22-year-old college student was arrested after trying to trade chicken alfredo and a Sprite for sex with a 15-year-old boy (who was actually an undercover cop).

According to WMC Action News 5, Youngstown State University student Albert Maruna began chatting with the disguised cop on a dating app. He even sent nudes and set up a meeting to have sex with the “boy.” Police reported that the two agreed to get together, and that Maruna would bring lubricant, chicken alfredo, and Sprite to their encounter.

When Maruna arrived at the designated location, he was promptly arrested and charged with attempted unlawful sexual contact with a minor, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, possessing criminal tools, and importuning. The alfredo, Sprite, and lubricant were in his car, along with Vaseline, an iPhone, a Macbook, and three zip drives.

Police were able to find several other graphic conversations and nude photos on Maruna’s phone, and are currently attempting to determine the ages of the people in those conversations, according to WFMJ.

Fettuccine Alfredo Pizza Is The Perfect Marriage Of Pasta And Pizza

A while back, our neighborhood pizzeria Jinny’s Pizzeria introduced an Internet-breaking Spaghetti Pizza that filled our pasta-loving hearts with joy. The ‘secret menu’ item featured spaghetti noodles and juicy meatballs thrown on top of an entire pizza.

For their one-year anniversary, Jinny’s is introducing a brand-new pasta/pizza hybrid that’s got us even more stoked than their spaghetti pie: Chicken Alfredo Pizza.

The new pizza features a base of chicken fettuccine alfredo topped with red onions, mozzarella, parmesan, and fresh parsley.

If you’re one who can’t decide between a rich bowl of fettuccine or a hearty slice of pizza, this might just be the mouthwatering compromise you’ll need. The new pizza will officially debut on March 1 in line with Jinny’s anniversary celebration.

Like it’s red-sauced predecessor, it will probably stick around based on popularity.
