  • Sprinkle chicken with Italian dressing mix and garlic powder.

  • Pan-fry chicken in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cooking in batches if necessary, until the juices run clear and chicken meat is no longer pink in the middle, about 10 minutes per batch. Turn chicken pieces over after about 5 minutes of cooking.

  • Transfer chicken to a serving bowl and toss with cooked pasta. Pour Alfredo sauce over chicken and pasta, mix thoroughly, and serve.

I cut back on the garlic powder a bit used Newman's alfredo sauce folded in a good amount parmesan cheese and fresh ground pepper and one package Steamfresh cooked/drained frozen broccoli. Everyone liked it especially my oldest boy. He ate two bowls. Next time I would add a little more pasta because it seemed like to me that even with the broccoli I added there was more sauce than pasta. GREAT quick all-in-one casserole that saved this working mother. NOTE: REWARMS WELL. If you want leftovers for the next day or have family that eats bigger doubling this is necessary. Read More

I was looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal that was under 6 ingredients. This seemed simple enough and it was delicious! I did use sliced Johnsonville Italian sausage instead of the chicken though and I will say that added a lot to the flavor. I would have never thought to add Italian sausage to an alfredo. I'm so glad I did!! Just slice it up and saute until cooked before adding the sauce and seasonings. I also watered mine down a bit to make sure I got all the sauce out of the jar. This was delicious!! Super easy too! If the flavor is lacking for anyone try adding a bit of onion powder salt and pepper to the dish. I don't think it needed it though. Thank you!! Read More

I used 1lb. of chicken. Didn't mix the pasta with the sauce and chicken. Used the Italian dressing package to taste. Added peas. Very easy and my family liked it. Thank you! Read More

Excellent. I didn't have any italian dressing mix so I used magic dust/cajun seasoning instead. Throw in a bag of cooked broccoli and a little parmesan cheese and some black pepper for a topping. Read More

This is a good recipe. I used Prego Alfredo Sauce and it turned out great. I didn't use garlic powder but I used minced garlic while cooking the chicken and the Italian dressing mix together.?? Read More
