Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo Shells






Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo Shells

 

 

 

Ingredients

·         2 1/2 cups (about 8oz) whole wheat medium shells
·         2 1/2 cups fresh broccoli, cut into small florets (just the head, no stem)
·         2 cups cooked diced or shredded chicken
·         1 (16oz) jar Alfredo Sauce
·         1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, medium cheddar or mozzarella
·         1/2 tsp Salt
·         1/4 tsp Pepper
·         1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

 

Instructions

1.   Cook shells according to directions on package. Mine took about 10 to 11 minutes. Drain. Return shells to the pan, add Alfredo sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir and set aside.
2.   Place broccoli florets and a little water in a container with a lid. Leave lid loose and microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes depending on how crunchy you like your broccoli; just keep in mind that it will continue to cook in the oven.
3.   Cook and dice or shred chicken. (I actually used leftover rotisserie chicken and heated it up in the microwave for 1½ minutes to have it hot like my other ingredients.)
