Chicken Alfredo with Italian Tomatoes Recipe

There’s four reasons you need to gather ingredients for this Chicken Alfredo with Italian Tomatoes recipe ASAP:

  1. Pre-cooked chicken (from a night before, your freezer or a rotisserie variety grabbed from the store) means Chicken Alfredo with Italian Tomatoes comes together about 5 minutes after your pasta has finished cooking. And what busy mama doesn’t like that??
  2. Ingredients are simple to keep on hand as a “prepped meal” and don’t take up a lot of freezer space…just a small zip top bag of chicken.
  3. Preparation and execution is as simple as popping the lid on a box, a jar, a can and opening a zip top bag then boiling, dumping and stirring.
  4. Chicken Alfredo with Italian Tomatoes is delish! It’s a meal I often take when there’s a family in need and it’s ALWAYS a hit…even with the kiddos!

Cook Time 20 mins
Course Main Course
Cuisine Italian

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups shredded or cubed chicken cooked
  • 10 oz pasta Gluten Free
  • 1 jar alfredo sauce
  • 1 can Italian canned tomatoes (garlic, basil, oregano)

Instructions
 

  • Cook pasta according to package directions
  • Drain and add chicken, alfredo and tomatoes to warm through
  • Serve with a side salad and garlic bread

Notes

–I like to cook my pasta to one minute short of suggested cooking time. This allows the pasta to finish cooking while the other ingredients are warming without over-doing (which leads to crumbly pasta)
–Barilla gluten free pasta is a go-to in our house. It’s easy to find in almost all grocery stores and not overly expensive as other varieties tend to be.
–Schar ciabatta rolls cut in half, buttered and lightly toasted with a sprinkle of garlic salt make a wonderful gluten free garlic bread option
Keyword Cost Effective Meal, Dinner, Dinner in under 30, freezer/pantry meal, gluten free

My favorite pot for pasta night! Boil the pasta, drain water via nifty strainer lid, add additional ingredients to pot with pasta to warm and BOOM! Dinner with fewer dishes!

Another one pot pasta favorite in our house is Skillet Lasagna. It takes a little more time but is creamy, cheesy delicious!
