Easy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Dinner

Here is a fast and delicious dinner using a prepared sauce.

I chose a 15 ounce jar of prepared Alfredo sauce and use only ¼ cup for each 2 ounces of pasta. When making the recipe below for four, you will have half the jar left over and it is delicious added to cooked vegetables. The chicken is cooked in an Italian dressing for extra flavor.

 

Serve the finished recipe  with cooked carrots and a side  salad for a well balanced meal. The recipe is below or click here for a printable copy.

 

 

½ pound fettucine, uncooked

2 cups broccoli florets, fresh or frozen

¼ cup itailan dressing

While pasta cooks , heat the dressing in a large nonstick skillet on medium-heat. Add chicken; cook 6-7 minutes or until done, stir occasionally.  Stir in sauce, simmer  covered for five minutes,.
