One Pot Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

I’ve been working on this recipe a few weeks and can hardly wait to share it with you all. I have a feeling it’s going to be a huge hit! Lot’s of protein, veggies, chesse, and flavor! You all know I’m a meal prep kind of gal so anything I can make in one pot is a life saver. No one loves to do ALL the dishes so using just one big pot makes life a little easier.

I always use my 6 quart cast iron pot for this recipe. In fact, I use it for a lot of my one pot meals, including the famous Skinny One Pot Chili Mac & Cheese. I’ve been dying to order another one because they’re so dang cute and practical! I’ve had my eye on a white one and may have to just take the plunge and order it soon!

This recipe is great reheated the next day, which is always a concern for me. In fact, I feel like the flavors really soak in and it tastes even better reheated. Or maybe I’m just crazy, who knows? Also, don’t forget you can find all our most recent recipes in Myfitnesspal by searching Stay Fit Mom, followed by the recipe name. This one is in there and ready for you so get after it! Here’s a step by step look at how to make this simple recipe below.

I found these mini penne noodles at Smith’s, but any pasta will work. 10 ounces of pasta is 10 ounces of pasta so use what you like! Scroll down for printable recipe! I hope you all love this chicken and broccoli recipe as much as I do!

    So I usually don’t like to make recipes this big because I live alone and I find myself getting tired of things before they go bad. Then, I made your chili mac last week and wasted NONE of it. I had it for lunch and dinner most days. I just made this one tonight and oh my goodness it’s so amazing. Thanks for sharing such great, foolproof recipes! I’m very excited for tomorrow’s lunch!
