Broccoli & Chicken Alfredo Shells

Broccoli & Chicken Alfredo Shells | A delicious meal when you are pressed for time! #chicken #alfredo |

I've actually made this recipe twice in the last few months because I knew I wanted to blog it, but the first time I had completely forgotten to get a picture. I'm sure making it twice in a few month's span sounds like I must not have liked this one, but it's actually the opposite. Nick has taken to telling people how many recipes I actually make and how something he really really loved he may get again in a few years, but it's actually pretty accurate. This is what happens when your wife hoards recipes.

Anyways...I ended up modifying the preparation of this one because I didn't feel like cooking everything and then putting it in the oven. So this went from about an hour to maybe 30 minutes preparing/cooking. It's simple, but it's delicious. Sometimes you really don't need a bunch of fancy ingredients to make a family favorite meal!
What you need:
  • 2 1/2 cups medium shells
  • Fresh broccoli
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1 jar Alfredo sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, plus some
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic
  1. Cook shells and broccoli together in boiling salted water.
  2. Drain and mix in chicken, alfredo, cheddar, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  3. Serve with more cheddar cheese, if desired.
