Chicken Fettuccine Michael for Two – Pietro’s Copycat Recipe

Chicken Fettuccine Michael Recipe

Chicken Fettuccine Michael has perfectly cooked fettuccine smothered in a creamy Parmesan and mushroom sauce and topped with lightly breaded chicken and toasted pine nuts. 

Chicken Fettuccine Michael is my favorite dish to order at our local Pietro’s Italian Restaurant. This is a copycat recipe.

How to make Chicken Fettuccine Michael:

Boil the fettuccine according to the package directions. I’m using 2 oz regular fettuccine and 2 oz spinach fettuccine. Pietro’s serves it with this combination as well.

Hi, Zona! This is right up my ally. Mr. Wonderful would love it. However, Drakes Crispy Fry Mix? Haven't seen that here in WI. What would you suggest as a replacement?

Hi Judy. I'm not sure if any other product would have the same exact flavor so I recommend only using Drake's. I have updated the post with links to the Drake's Mix so you can see exactly what the box looks like. My local store carries it near the Shake N Bake chicken coating. I think Walmart stores carry it as well if you don't see it in your grocery store. You can also try googling "Drake's Crispy Fry Mix near me". Good luck, I hope you find it because it totally makes this dish amazing along with the pine nuts :)
