Chicken Broccoli Alfredo

It happened. I’m finally full. Didn’t know it could actually happen. But it did. Have you ever eaten so much that if you ate one more bite you knew you would literally be sick? That was me last night. We had dinner and I checked my self control at the door. Shrimp, salad, and a filet topped with lump crab meat and butter sauce. For dessert, a piece of carrot cake that was as big as my face. Trust me, I measured as I was shoving it in my face.

If you want to be my friend, you have to love to eat. That’s why Heidi and I were such good friends. She made this one night for us at her house. So good and supposedly this is a knock off of the Chicken Con Broccoli from Olive Garden. I know I’ve been making a lot of pastas lately but hey, that’s the best part about running…carbo-loading the night before my long runs.

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
Prep Time
21 hrs 59 mins
Cook Time
21 hrs 59 mins
Servings: 4 -6 servings
  • 2-3 cooked chicken breasts diced
  • 1-2 cups fresh chopped broccoli cooked and hot
  • fettuccine cooked according to package directions. (I used penne because it's what I had)
Alfredo Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Cook chicken in method desired. I just cooked mine on the stove. Add chicken and broccoli to Alfredo sauce and heat through. Serve over hot, cooked fettuccine.
  2. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic with the butter. Add cream, garlic powder, and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. Trust me, it will thicken. When sauce has reached desired consistency, stir in Parmesan cheese. Use for Chicken Broccoli Alfredo, or just serve as is over fettuccine. Serves 4-6.

Speak Your Mind



  1. that looks absolutely divine!

  2. ditto! Amazing. I love the chik/broc combo.

  3. I make this all the time. It’s one of hubby’s favorites.

  4. I almost always have penne on hand so it was nice seeing a pic of the recipe the way I will probably make it. Can’t wait to try this soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I’ve always wanted to attempt to make this, but didn’t think I could. This recipie was so quick and amazingly easy to make. Thanks for sharing it was a big hit and one i’ll continue to make.

  6. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favourite reason appeared to be at the web the simplest factor to take note of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as people think about concerns that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other people could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

  7. i like some of your recipe, but there is no way you can print up what you wont to save withe the pic in less you have to pic up what every person have to say about the recipe. is there any way you can just print it up with the pic and the recipe.because i don`t what all the junk in my recipe when i`m type it up for my recipe box?????

      Sorry! I’m gradually making the printing better with all of my recipes but I’m only halfway through over 400 recipes. I’ve fixed this one. Give it a try!
