This homemade chicken broccoli alfredo pasta is simple and delicious! Chicken breast, broccoli, homemade alfredo sauce and shaved parmesan cheese baked together for a meal that will become a family favorite. This recipe makes 4 large servings or 6 smaller servings if served with a side such as garlic bread or a green salad.
This may sound odd, but I don’t think I ever ate chicken alfredo until I was grown. I was truly missing out on a classic, but I’m making up for that now, lol.
Easy Homemade Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
Don’t let the homemade alfredo sauce intimidate you. It’s really easy and only takes a few minutes to make. It tastes fresher and better than the jar version. It’s very creamy and blends with the chicken and pasta in the most perfect way. The recipe calls for frozen broccoli. I used the steam in bag version and it worked just fine. Use fresh broccoli if that’s what you prefer.
Also, for this recipe, I chose to use shaved parmesan instead of shredded, just for a change of pace! If you’re not a fan of parmesan cheese, try mozzarella. I love penne pasta, but I’ve used fettuccine as well. So use your favorite pasta, too.
I hope your family loves this chicken broccoli alfredo dinner as much as we do! Give it a try and let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you!
