Chicken Alfredo

Every weekend I try to plan out our dinners for the upcoming week and make a grocery list.  I've found we throw out less food, spend less at Walmart, and eat less of the same things.  I even made up a "master list" of all our favorite main dishes, side dishes, and vegetables.  It really helps when your trying to plan a week ahead!

This week we strayed a little from our plan.  Oh well...I write in pencil for a reason.  We were supposed to have Ham on Tuesday, Lasagna Rolls on Wednesday, leftovers Thursday, and Chicken Alfredo on Friday.  But lasagna got bumped up to Tuesday and we needed another quick meal tonight so Chicken Alfredo it was!

This whole dish can come together in 30 minutes if you know what you're doing. It's one of the main reasons we make it so often. Anything quick, easy, and delicious is a crowd-pleaser at my house! The recipe is written for a single batch, but it can easily be doubled. We like to double the sauce (soup, parmesan cheese, pepper, and milk) and the more broccoli the better!

Start by melting the butter in a pan.  Add the chicken and cook until no it's longer pink.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta and broccoli according to package directions.  You can use linguine, rotini, or just about any other type of pasta.

When the chicken is fully cooked, stir in condensed soup, milk, parmesan cheese, and pepper.  Cook until heated through.

In a large bowl, combine the pasta, broccoli, and chicken mixture.  That's it!

In under 30 minutes you can make a delicious meal and even have leftovers for lunch...
