Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti
We have a favorite Italian restaurant (Zio's) that we go to for our Chicken Alfredo. I tell you their chicken Alfredo, either the spicy one or the regular really hit the spot. The creaminess and flavor is just right, perfect!
So, for my Friday night dinner, I decided to cook this dish but with whole wheat spaghetti and store bought Alfredo sauce. Of course the store bought Alfredo sauce is nothing compared to the restaurant standard. I will still go back to that restaurant for the real deal.
1 skinless chicken breast, sliced
1 can of 8 oz. mushrooms
Olive oil for cooking
Poultry seasoning (few dashes)
Italian seasoning (few dashes)
Dried basil (2 dashes)
Salt to taste
1 (13.25 oz.) pack of whole wheat spaghetti
1 bottle of Alfredo sauce
1/2 cup of Mozzarella cheese
Extra cheese to sprinkle on top if desire
1. Cook spaghetti as directed, drain and set aside.
2. In a big frying pan, add olive pan, pan fry the chicken until cooked, add in mushrooms and the rest of the seasoning.
3. Add in the spaghetti, pour in the Alfredo sauce, stir to mix well. Add in the cheese and stir until cheese is melted.
4. Serve as is or top with more Mozzarella cheese (or Parmesan cheese) before serving.
I would love to share this dish with Presto Pasta Night. Presto Pasta Night was created by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast. This week host is Ruth herself at Once Upon a Feast. Please hop over on Friday to see the round up.
