CHICKEN BROCCOLI ALFREDO

My favorite part of running a marathon was carbo-loading the night before my long runs with pasta dishes. In fact, whenever I make this Chicken Broccoli Alfredo I vividly remember eating it the night before a 20 mile run.

If you’ve ever trained for a marathon you know that the 20-miler is pretty much just as if not worse than the actual marathon. You don’t have the adrenaline to help you out like you do on race day.

This meal is one of my family’s absolute favorites. Everyone loves the creamy alfredo sauce, broccoli, chicken combo!

SOME TIPS:

  • If your sauce simmers too long it can start to get too thick or separate. Simply whisk in a couple of tablespoon of milk or cream to thin it out a bit.
  • Make sure to simmer and not rapid boil! If your heat is too high you can scald the sauce.
  • To make this dish even easier I always have frozen rotisserie chicken on hand to use. You can also steam the broccoli or put it in a covered bowl with an inch of water and cook it in the microwave.
