Quick and Easy Chicken Broccoli Alfredo

I made a super easy, yummy and healthy dinner last night I thought I would share.  It’s fairly easy to prepare and comes together quickly.  Yay.  The kids all love it too, so everyone is happy ;-).

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
Disclaimer:  I’m sorry I didn’t really measure anything.  Just prepare how much you think you and/or your family will eat!

Chicken; cut into cubes
Broccoli (frozen or fresh); cut into florets
Alfredo Sauce (jarred, mix or homemade!)
Healthy Fettuccine Noodles, brown rice or quinoa
Olive Oil
Seasoning Salt

Some of the ingredients I used!

Prepare and cut Chicken into cubes.

Preheat 2-3 T. Olive Oil in a skillet.
I used an electric skillet, but you could also use a wok or large pan on top of the stove.

Add Chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add frozen broccoli (if using fresh, cook chicken about 5 minutes longer before you add it.)

Sprinkle the chicken and broccoli with seasoned salt (add more if you like more….less if you like less!)
Cook 5-10 minutes more until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Ta da!

While the chicken and broccoli are cooking, prepare the sauce and noodles (or brown rice, quinoa, etc.)

I’ve used jarred Alfredo sauce in the past and it is super easy and quick!  I try to buy healthier brands and always check the labels to make sure it’s as “real” as possible.  Classico makes a great one that I love.

I’ve also made my own Alfredo sauce before too.  It’s a little bit of a pain, but it’s yummy.  Click here for a great recipe from AllRecipes.com.

But, last night I chose to make this kind by Simply Organic.

I bought these packets at Smiths and it was very yummy.  It was super easy to make too.

I made Fettuccine noodles for my kids and Kev and I had quinoa.  I cooked the noodles and quinoa while the chicken and broccoli were cooking too.  It was pretty slick.

I loved it with the quinoa.  I just topped the quinoa with the broccoli and chicken and then topped everything with the sauce!  Yum!

Here’s my plate.

All my kids loved it too.

When I snapped this picture, my sweet littlest baby was sitting off to the side in his high chair.  He started saying “Cheese!”  So, I of course snapped his pic as well.

I love this little squishy baby!  LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!

I hope you all enjoy!

I was talking to my (hardcore) sister the other day and she seemed a little bit bugged that I ate a few treats over the weekend.  😉 I told her I was a little bit of a slacker, but I was hittin’ it hard this week.  She said, “I thought you weren’t going to eat any treats in January?” Well….er….uh….I did say that didn’t I??? Dang. My sister and I (and pretty much all my siblings) have the same treat addiction problem so we’re always trying to motivate each other and keep each other on track. It’s awesome. So, I’m Continue Reading…

I’ve been wanting to hop on here and do a quick blog post for days!!!  We’ve been crazy and I’m worried that this “crazy” is the new “normal.”  Eeeek. However, the kids are back in school.  I love them very much, but…. WAHOOO! I get to have a somewhat organized and scheduled life again. Phewwww. With this new found organization and schedule, I’m feeling particularly motivated.  I’ve been somewhat of a morning person too!! Gasp, I know! Since my 12 year old is in Junior High now, I have to wake him up at 6:30.  That might not sound all Continue Reading…
