This wasextremely easy and really good with just a few changes. I use two cans of chicken breast, a can of sliced mushrooms, and two jars of light alfredo sauce. I put a little olive oil in the pan, add some garlic, fry it a little, add the chicken and mushrooms, spice it up with salt, pepper, basil leaves, and some Emeril's Italian Essence, and heat it through. Then I add the sauce and simmer. I use angel hair pasta,only half a pound, and after I add the pasta to the boiling water I blanch a cup or two of fresh broccoli for just a minute and add it to the pan with the sauce. That's it! My family loves it and it only takes about 15 or 20 minutes. Very tasty!
This recipe was good. My family loves garlic so I added fresh minced garlic while cooking the chicken. YUMMY!!! I will be cooking this again.
Best Chicken Alfredo!
This recipe is everything it claimed to be...quick, easy and yummy, too! My husband and his friend and I really liked it. My kids wouldn't even touch it which doesn't mean much being that they are picky eaters anyway! I will definately make this one again.
Used bow tie pasta and added fresh minced garlic, seasoning salt, poultry seasoning (on the chicken breasts) sliced mushrooms and topped with parmesan cheese. Left out the vegetables. Easy when you need a quick meal.
Great recipe...the hardest part was cooking the chicken, which tells you something.
I substituted fresh vegetables and mushrooms, and it turned out better than when I did it with the frozen vegetables, but that's just a suggestion.
Please note that this recipe yields what I would consider five large portions, which I could hardly finish, after adding some toast as a side.
I scaled this up X5 to feed 20 people....After 3 lbs pasta, there was enough to feed an army. I didn't add the remining pasta because it would have been way too much and I don't think there was enough sauce (5 jars) to cover that much pasta. I got rave revews and people ate a bunch, but there was still alot left over. With a salad and side dish the original recipe easily would feed 6-8, not 4.
We really liked this recipe but I would be careful about the type of vegetables used. I used a california blend but I wished I would have only used broccoli. Otherwise this was easy and very good leftover as well.
