Quick week day dinner recipe for Chicken Alfredo with Bacon and Broccoli.
Chicken Alfredo but making Alfredo Sauce from scratch can take time and a lot of ingredients. This recipe quickly came together with 1 jar of alfredo, chicken, 1 crown of broccoli, leftover bacon from breakfast and a box of fettuccine noodles. It was one of those nights where you swing open the pantry and figure something out based on what you have.
Ingredients/Subsitutions for Chicken Alfredo with Bacon and Broccoli
Alfredo Sauce – You can use homemade Alfredo sauce. For this recipe I used jarred because it was convenient.
Bacon – When opening a pack of bacon I cook the whole package. I place leftovers in an air tight container and use them in other recipes. The bacon in this recipe was leftover from breakfast.
Broccoli – I use fresh broccoli. Frozen broccoli will be fine in this recipe just cook it per package instructions first.
Red Pepper Flakes – Optional. Use them if you love them or skip them if you are not a fan.
Freeze leftovers in an airtight plastic bag or container. I used my Food Saver and bagged the leftovers in individual portions. To reheat leftovers take out of your bag or container and put in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Microwave in 30 second intervals until heated through stirring in between.
