One Pot Creamy Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli

Instructions

Step 1
Few skillet meals are as satisfying or as easy to make as this recipe for Creamy Chicken Broccoli Alfredo, made in one pot in just 30 minutes. Bite-sized pieces of broccoli and chicken breast are simmered with penne pasta in a rich-tasting, creamy Alfredo sauce. For a fast weekday meal, this one pot chicken Alfredo skillet dinner is a winner, requiring only five ingredients you may already have on hand, and one pot for no-effort cleanup.
Step 2
Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium- high heat. Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally (to prevent sticking- make sure the skillet and the oil are hot before adding the chicken).
Step 3
Add the broccoli and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the sauce, water and uncooked penne and heat to a boil (press the penne down so that it cooks in the sauce mixture).
Step 4
Cook, uncovered, (keep at medium-high) until the penne is tender, stirring occasionally (the penne should be al dente at about 12 minutes).
Step 5
Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving, if desired.
Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jar (14.5 ounces) Prego® Homestyle Alfredo Sauce
3 cups water
8 ounces (about 2 1/2 cups) uncooked penne pasta or whole grain penne pasta
