Your guests will be stunned at how delicious your chicken Alfredo is after making this. I don’t care if you can’t hard boil eggs properly; this recipe is the simplest and most delicious recipe that you have ever had. Everyone will be boasting at how you are such an awesome cook.

 

This recipe serves eight so you can just adjust accordingly if need be. However it makes for a tasty lunch with the leftovers so I always make the whole batch.

 

At the store you will need to get three boneless and skinless chicken breasts. A jar of Alfredo sauce which is with the spaghetti sauces, you can just choose any of them. A box of penne pasta, I like to use this pasta because it holds the sauce very nicely. I use Dream Fields pasta personally because it is low glycemic but you can use which you want.

 

You will also need a jar of Parmesan, a loaf of French bread from your bakery, garlic powder, butter, and a bag of shredded cheese, I use the Italian mix but you can just use cheddar if you want.

 

Here are the simple steps to put this delicious recipe all together.

Directions

Approximately 30 minutes before dinner time you will cut up the chicken breasts into bit size pieces and cook them in a hot skillet with 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cook until cooked through. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Meanwhile put a large pan of water on to boil and then cut the French bread down the middle to make 2 large pieces, you will want to butter both pieces on the cut side and then sprinkle with garlic powder and generously cover with the shredded cheese. Now turn the boiler on in your oven. After the oven is ready; then put the bread in on a cookie sheet and watch closely until the cheese is nicely melted and the edges of the bread are golden brown.

Once the water is boiling than add a pinch of salt and put in the entire box of penne pasta and let the water get to a boil again set your timer for 10 minutes, you want the pasta to be al dente. When the chicken is fully cooked than simply pour the entire jar of Alfredo sauce over the chicken and turn the burner to low. After the pasta is cooked, then strain and add to the chicken and Alfredo sauce and mix easily and let cook for 10 minutes on low. You will then plate and sprinkle with some Parmesan and a couple pieces of the garlic cheese bread and viola.

You can also make a Caesar salad to go along with it nicely if you like, it compliments it wonderfully.
