Quick Dinner: Chicken Alfredo

November 12, 2013

* I was provided Pompeian olive oil in exchange for this review. All opinions are mine. You already know*

I think every busy Mom is always in search of that quick meal that gets folks fed and in the bed. One of my go to meals is Chicken Alfredo. Sometimes if I am in the mood I will make the sauce from scratch…that’s not often though.

The ingredients are minimal. Olive oil, chicken, broccoli, sauce, and fettucine.

I start by heating up a bit of olive oil in the pan. Just enough to coat the bottom in and saute the chicken pieces that I’ve cut up and seasoned.

Once the chicken is just about done I add in frozen broccoli and let it steam as the chicken continues to cook

Around this time I start  boiling the water for our fettucine noodles. I add in a little olive oil as well to add in some flavor and to keep the noodles from sticking together.

Once I get the noodles boiling I add sauce to the chicken and heat thoroughly before serving over the noodles.

Simple and easy.

    Our favorite go to meal is Chicken Tortilla Soup. It’s so easy to make and it usually takes less than 30 minutes to whip up. Perfect for last minute dinner after the kiddos games and practices.

    Taco is the quickest thing I can make but this looks good I love putting broccoli in my Alfredo for some reason it just makes it taste better.

    I’m not a fan of alfredo sauce so I’d have to substitute but looks delicious. Madison loves chicken quesadillas so I make it at least once a week for her and it’s quick and easy.

    Ohh now that looks good! I love fettucine alfredo. I used to make my sauce from scratch, but I haven’t done it in years. Now that I think about it, I have some chicken breast and brocolli in the freezer. I may have to go ahead and work this out. Thanks for sharing!
