Shortcut Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Recipe

Want something yummy that you can whip up in 30 minutes on a Monday (or any day, for that matter?) Here’s the perfect recipe for you. This is a regular for Herb and I when we want a yummy meal without a lot of work, which is perfect for Mondays!

Oh, Mondays. They get me every time, sneaking up on me after those wonderful, relaxing Sundays. Herb and I had a wonderful Sunday yesterday. It was an abnormally beautiful, sunny November day in the upper 60’s. We were able to take a nice walk in the park near our house and enjoy the sunshine. For some reason we were both in an extremely goofy mood yesterday, so there was a lot of laughter and fun all day! Those are the Sundays that can make Mondays hard to wake up to!

Anyway, this recipe is great when you’re short on time. Plus, it’s only a few ingredients, which are all things we normally have around the house.

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Ingredients for Shortcut Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Recipe

Recipe Directions

Using at least a 3-quart saucepan, boil the water for your noodles. Fix the noodles per the instructions, but add the broccoli and salt during the last 5 minutes of the cooking time.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Trim your chicken and cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and cook in the skillet, stirring often, until well browned.

Then combine the pasta and broccoli mixture with the chicken mixture. Note: If your skillet isn’t large enough for this, you may need to combine in the drained saucepan. Stir everything together and serve with some more Parmesan cheese if you so desire!

  1. I’ve never actually made alfredo before…I need to change that!

  2. Chicken and broccoli alfredo is one of my hubby’s favorite meals. Love how quick and easy your recipe is. Thanks for sharing:)

  3. Looks good! I rarely cook on Mondays because I really don’t care for them, like most of the rest of the world… My hubby cooks something on Sundays that will allow us to have leftovers. It’s a nice little routine we’ve gotten into! 🙂

      That’s a great idea! We use that idea, but we take something we made from Friday or Saturday and eat it on our lazy Sundays 🙂
