Chicken Alfredo Broccoli – This simple and fast chicken alfredo and broccoli dish is the ideal Italian supper for the whole family on hectic weeknights and can be prepared in under 20 minutes.
- You may prepare the alfredo sauce using either heavy whipping cream or heavy cream (depending on what you have on hand), or half and half or milk instead of heavy cream (just use more butter in this case).
- I used Parmesan cheese, but shredded Monterey Jack or Mozzarella cheese would also work nicely in this dish.
- If you don’t have penne pasta on hand, use fettuccine pasta. See the Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo recipe.
- Instead of fresh rotisserie chicken, you may use frozen rotisserie chicken.
Important Notes on Chicken Alfredo Broccoli
- If your sauce is overly thick, add a couple of tablespoons of milk or cream to thin it down.
- Always keep the sauce on a low heat setting and stay away from excessive heat.
What Are You Going To Do With The Leftovers?

Can this Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pasta be frozen?
No, unfortunately! I don’t suggest freezing this recipe for two reasons: first, the texture may be different, and second, it may become too messy.

If you’ve ever found yourself frustrated with the canned/boxed versions of chicken alfredo pasta, then you’re in luck! This recipe will teach you how to make a homemade version with fresh ingredients that can be ready in less than an hour! With this recipe, I’ve learned that there are multiple ways to cook pasta. The most common is to boil it; but I prefer to use a technique called “cooking in a sauce”, in which the pasta is cooked in a sauce that’s been cooked. The result is a pasta that’s al dente, or “to the tooth.”. Read more about chicken and broccoli fettuccine alfredo and let us know what you think.
