One Pot Meal- Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pasta with Garlic
Servings: 4-6 | Time: About 30 Minutes
1 Bag frozen (or fresh) chicken strips
1 Bag frozen (or fresh) broccoli
*1 Jar of Alfredo Sauce
2 Cloves garlic (crushed)
1 box pasta
2 tsp. garlic powder
3 Tablespoons butter or olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS: Boil the broccoli about 5 minutes or until done, drain. In the same pot, prepare the pasta according to the directions or al-dente, about 10 minutes. Drain. I dumped the pasta on top of the cooked broccoli in the colander. Don’t rinse. Melt the butter (or oil) until simmering, not smoking. Lightly sauté the garlic until fragrant in the butter or oil. Add the cooked chicken and cook thoroughly. With tongs or a fork, remove the chicken. Leaving the bits of chicken and oil in the pot. I placed the chicken with the broccoli and pasta. Add the Alfredo Sauce to the oil and stir well until warm. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Dump in the broccoli, pasta and chicken mix thoroughly. Serve.
Verdict: Family loved it. It took longer than I expected to make. Which is normal for me🗯️. Plenty of leftovers.
* If you have the energy you can substitute premade Alfredo Sauce with homemade. As well as pre made chicken with grilled or baked chicken.
Alfredo Sauce and chicken prep recipes will be posted in September.
