    E. Nigma's Note:

    This is an Olive Garden copycat recipe. This is also a redo of a previous posting. I reworked the ingredients and amounts to be a little more manageable (the original had way too much cream and milk for the sauce and was designed for too many people).

      We really enjoyed this a lot! Will definitely make this again. My cheese sauce got way too thick, so I will use a bit more cream next time. My husband said he wanted a bit more bacon. For me, I think I'd put less chicken in and a few more pieces of shrimp. Delicious recipe, E. Nigma! Its already in the favorites.
