Chicken Broccoli Alfredo is the perfect way to start off any week!  It’s a fantastic easy pasta dish you can make for your families. (Yes, even the cooking impaired can make this dish!) 

I’ve been making this dish for years and it is a HUGE favorite! You are going to love this recipe. The ingredients are in your cupboard and refrigerator.  It’s simple to make and its super-duper yummy! I promise your “littles” will be slurping it down.  

How To Make Grilled Chicken Broccoli Alfredo

It’s gotta start with the chicken! Otherwise we just have Pasta with Alfredo sauce…and the carnivores at this house will not stand for that!

You’ll need 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  For the marinade I use Kraft Sun Dried Tomato Salad Dressing. Seriously! This is my favorite dressing for marinade. Steaks or Chicken, you can’t go wrong. It’s amazing! (Thank you, Kraft!) I have bottles of this on hand during the summer months! 

Place the chicken breast in a gallon size zip lock bag.  Pour 1 cup of dressing over the chicken breast. Squish it all around for a minute. Then toss them in the refrigerator, walk away, dance away…whatever pleases you…lol… and let them do their thing.

Chicken Marinade

I’ll be honest…I knew my weekend was going to be NUTS… so I placed mine in the bag on Friday and didn’t grill them till Sunday! So, you can marinade 4 hours, or you can marinade them for 48. Either way you’ll be okay.

Easy Alfredo Sauce with Cream Cheese

Next in a medium size sauce pan over medium-low heat add 1 stick of butter, 1- 8 oz. bar of cream cheese cut into squares, and 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

With a wire whisk, over medium-low heat, stir constantly, until all the ingredients melt together and combine. 

Making alfredo sauce

Add in Parmesan cheese and whisk until it combines. It won’t totally combine, but that’s okay. The milk is going to jump in there and smooth everything out. Trust me.

Mixing Alfredo Sauce

Stir, stir, stir. As it begins to blend together now is the time to add 3/4 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of white cooking wine.

TIP: If you don’t want to add the cooking wine you do not have to. Just increase the milk to one cup, and continue adding milk until you have the consistency you like. When it is all blended together it should look like the photo below.

You now have a rich, flavorful, Alfredo sauce.  Wasn’t that easy? (Yep… It was! Lol) Allow the sauce to simmer, stirring occasionally. If it becomes too thick…add extra milk. 

Alfredo Sauce

When it’s time to pull this recipe together, wash and clean two full stocks of broccoli. (Should be about 2 cups worth) Cut the broccoli into florets, place them in a small pot, and throw out all your broccoli stems. (Yep, forgot the photo… I’m consistent at least!) Bring to a boil and cook till just tender crisp. (You don’t want icky soggy broccoli! No, no, no!) Drain the broccoli, cover, and keep warm till ready to assemble.

Fill a large pot, halfway with water, bring the water to a boil. Cook your noodles al dente! 

While the noodles are cooking it is good time to start grilling that chicken! Send your grill master out with those chicken breasts, or you can also cook them in a skillet on top of the stove! I’ve done it both ways, and it turns out beautifully. Just be sure to cook them till the juices run clear!

Assembling Grilled Chicken Alfredo

In a large casserole dish, layer the Fettuccine, then the broccoli. Next, slice your grilled marinated chicken strips into 1/4 inch slices. Pour the warm Alfredo sauce over the Fettuccine and broccoli. Then lay your chicken strips on top. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan. That’s it! You are done! Hooray You!

Isn’t it mouth-watering?(I’m drooling right now, and I even had the leftovers for lunch! I’m so pathetic in my love affair with food!)

Grilled Chicken Alfredo is so simple to make, yet so beautiful. The great thing about this dish is that if you don’t like broccoli, don’t add it. If you like more chicken, grill it. If you like your Alfredo sauce thin…add more milk…if you like thick…add less. If you have kids that just want noodles and sauce…easy peasy to scoop from the side.

Start to finish this dish only takes about 30 minutes to pull together, minus the marinating.

Chicken Alfredo

I serve this with garlic cheesy bread and an easy Caesar salad. It is such a complete meal you really don’t need more. You are going to be shocked how juicy and flavorful that grilled chicken is from the Kraft Salad dressing marinade! It really kicks this recipe up a notch or two! This is such a comforting family dish! Perfect for a family dinner or even a dinner party.

Hi Michele... If you read the post... "Ahem" lol, you would have seen that I said my Granddaughter climbed up on the table and took the serving spoon to finish off the left-overs in the dish. So I snapped a little photo of her "piggy's" enjoying the last of the dish! Norine

This was really, really good!! Even my son who said he is not an Alfredo fan loved it. Only thing I did different was roast the broccoli to save the stovetop space. Easy to make and delish. Will keep this one in the rotation. Thanks for sharing!

I couldn't find the sun dried tomato dressing so tried roasted red pepper. I know, not the same but it made some yummy chicken! Just fyi, if you don't have time to marinate the chicken, 5 min in the marinade and an extra squirt of dressing in the pan as it finishes cooking still gives it good flavor. ;) I did use the wine but will probably skip it next time. Good recipe. Thanks!
