A Quick Meal

Since my dinner plans for last night were foiled by my forgetting my wallet...I fell back on this favorite which is incredibly easy and we always really enjoy it! I'm not usually a fan of mixes or jarred sauces, but after trying so many recipes - we've found we like this the best! This is ready in less than 30 minutes and I decided to submit to Gooseberry Patch for the Super-Speedy Supper ideas:

Broccoli Chicken Fettucini Alfredo

* I have tried many homemade alfredo recipes and this mix has turned out to be our favorite. It is quick, easy, and yummy!

1 sm. bunch broccoli cut off of stem (or 1 1/2 c. frozen)
1 large chicken breast
4 oz. uncooked fettucini noodles
1 package alfredo sauce mix and ingredients as directed on back of package
1 Tbsp. oil
Salt, Pepper, and Garlic to taste

Pour 1 Tbsp. oil into a skillet and add chicken cut into chunks. Add seasonings. Cook over medium heat until lightly browned all over. Meanwhile, cook fettucini according to package directions. Cut broccoli flowerets into bite size pieces and steam in microwave for about 3 minutes. When chicken is done, remove from skillet. Make alfredo sauce according to package directions in skillet. When thickened as desired, add chicken, broccoli (with water drained off), and pasta. Heat through. Serves 2 with leftovers.
