  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook pasta at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with Italian dressing mix and garlic powder.
  3. Pan-fry chicken in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cooking in batches if necessary, until the juices run clear and chicken meat is no longer pink in the middle, about 10 minutes per batch. Turn chicken pieces over after about 5 minutes of cooking.
  4. Transfer chicken to a serving bowl and toss with cooked pasta. Pour Alfredo sauce over chicken and pasta, mix thoroughly, and serve.

Easy, and a great use for leftover chicken that I had. What a easy recipe, using prepared alfredo sauce-perfect for any dinner-salad and bread, and dinner's on the table!

Might as well order out! Or just read the side of the jar. It tells you exactly what to do!

I cut back on the garlic powder a bit, used Newman's alfredo sauce, folded in a good amount parmesan cheese and fresh ground pepper and one package Steamfresh cooked/drained frozen broccoli. Everyone liked it, especially my oldest boy. He ate two bowls. Next time, I would add a little more pasta because it seemed like to me that even with the broccoli I added, there was more sauce than pasta. GREAT quick all-in-one casserole that saved this working mother. NOTE: REWARMS WELL. If you want leftovers for the next day or have family that eats bigger, doubling this is necessary.

used Wegman's alfredo sauce and added broccoli. Very, very good.

I was looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal that was under 6 ingredients. This seemed simple enough, and it was delicious! I did use sliced Johnsonville Italian sausage instead of the chicken though, and I will say that added a lot to the flavor. I would have never thought to add Italian sausage to an alfredo. I'm so glad I did!! Just slice it up and saute until cooked before adding the sauce and seasonings. I also watered mine down a bit to make sure I got all the sauce out of the jar. This was delicious!! Super easy too! If the flavor is lacking for anyone, try adding a bit of onion powder, salt, and pepper to the dish. I don't think it needed it though. Thank you!!

Excellent. I didn't have any italian dressing mix, so I used magic dust/cajun seasoning instead. Throw in a bag of cooked broccoli, and a little parmesan cheese and some black pepper for a topping.

I used 1lb. of chicken. Didn't mix the pasta with the sauce and chicken. Used the Italian dressing package to taste. Added peas. Very easy and my family liked it. Thank you!
