Some days I just throw things together, and my family doesn’t mind. This recipe is simple and very easy.
Every now and then I cheat a little, just a smidge. My family has grown to love this quick and easy Chicken Alfredo. Of course, homemade Alfredo is always better. I won’t dispute that. But, this recipe is great if you are pressed for time or just don’t feel comfortable making your own sauce. So, here we go…
1 package of skinless boneless chicken breast (cubed)
3-4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1-2 jars of pre-made Alfredo sauce (any brand you like) I used Bertolli
1 tsp Olive Oil
Salt(I use Mediterranean Sea Salt), Pepper, and Italian Seasoning to taste
Pasta of your choice (we use whole wheat thin spaghetti)
Cube and chop all of your chicken and garlic. Put chicken to the side. In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Throw your garlic in the pan and saute for a minute or two. Don’t burn it! Now add your chicken. Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper over the chicken. Saute chicken until it is browned and cooked. Add your jar(s) of Alfredo sauce. Add about 1 tsp of Italian seasoning. Sprinkle a little more salt and pepper(not too much, add more if needed). Reduce heat down to medium-low and cover. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Boil your pasta according to the box directions. Toss with a little Olive Oil, plate and serve! You can even add some nice garlic bread and a salad.
That’s it! Super easy, and super delicious! Your family will think you spent hours slaving over the stove.
