Chicken Alfredo is a simple pasta dish that combines chicken, pasta, and a creamy sauce. It’s a filling and flavorful meal that’s also great for leftovers, single adults, couples or families. You can use a jar of pre-made Alfredo sauce when you’re pressed for time — many of the Alfredo sauces available are as tasty as sauce you can make from scratch. Add additional ingredients to the chicken Alfredo to suit your family’s tastes and give it a frequent spot on your dinner menu.
Things You'll Need
Spray a pan with nonstick cooking spray. Cut your chicken breast into strips and cook until tender. Season with garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Fill a pot of water 3/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Add your box of pasta and add 1 tsp. olive oil to prevent sticking. Cook 3 to 5 minutes until al dente.
Pour the Alfredo sauce in a pot and heat until warm. At the same time, pour 2 cups of water in a pan and add the broccoli and corn. Turn the heat to medium and cook until hot.
Place some of the pasta on a plate, add broccoli and corn, place chicken strips on top of the mixture and top with Alfredo sauce. Serve hot and sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top for an additional flare.
Try different vegetables in your meal for a different flavor and texture.
Serve the chicken Alfredo with some garlic or Italian bread and a salad.
Use different types of pasta, such as penne or farfalle to add interest.
