Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo 

Holy deliciousness. This meal is the perfect way to get your picky eaters to finally eat their broccoli. 

It received two thumbs up from Blake and Logan. 👍🏼👍🏼

Here’s what you’ll need for this creamy and delicious chicken & broccoli Alfredo recipe. 

  • 1 Jar of Bertoli (garlic) Alfredo sauce (I chose garlic but there are many different flavors including original) 
  • 2 bunches of broccoli (I bought the fresh kind so by “2 bunches” I mean two of those mini trees of broccoli, if you buy bagged I would say it’s probably equivalent to about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 pack of thin spaghetti noodles
  • 3 chicken breasts 
  • 1 1/2tbsp olive oil 
  • 1tbsp country crock (or any other type of butter)
  • Parmesan cheese to top 
  • Salt, pepper and garlic salt to season

Start by chopping your broccoli like so:

  
You’ll need a large pan to cook the chicken and a large pot to boil the noodles.

Pour the tablespoon of olive oil on the pan and heat to medium high. Fill your pot 3/4 of the way with water, add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. 

Place your chicken breasts on the pan and your noodles in the boiling water (I break the noodles in half to help them cook faster). I used Garlic Salt to season my chicken.  

  
Once the chicken is thoroughly cooked, cut them into small strips and set them aside. 

  
At this point your noodles are likely done cooking as well, drain the water and use the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil on noodles to keep them from sticking together. 

  
Rinse your chicken pan, or use a new one to cook the broccoli. 

Add the tablespoon of whatever type of butter you like and some salt and pepper as well. Cook the broccoli until it’s soft.

  
Now bring the chicken back to your pan along with the broccoli and add the noodles as well.

  
Next step: SAUCE

  
Empty the entire contents of the jar like so:

  
And mix it all up. 

  
Top with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
