If you follow me on Instagram then you know I had made baked chicken and had to much leftover.  I had to do something with it quick so I whipped up a quick meal using my leftover chicken and made Chicken Alfredo. When I tell you that this recipe is supper easy, quick to make and cheap.  Now being a family on a budget I can not afford to waste any food so I try to find crafty ways to use leftovers. Plus, make sure that mini me get her vegetables (even though she pick out the broccoli.) Now if you don't want vegetables in your Alfredo then just take it out. But I like a little crunch with my mine and color. Most of these ingredients in this recipe is something that you should have on hand and if not they are really cheap at your local grocery store. Now with Alfredo Sauce I have two version one with cream cheese and one with heavy cream. This time I used the cream cheese version because Kroger had the store brand cream cheese 10 for $10 and  the heavy cream was $2.49, you do the math. This is one of my family favorite meal and I promise you once you make this meal you will not look at leftover food again.

Left Over Chicken Alfredo With Vegetable.

Ingredients

Vegetables

2 cups raw carrots, sliced

2 cups raw broccoli florets

Alfredo Sauce

1 stick of butter

4 oz. cream cheese (low fat OK but NOT fat free)

1 tsp. Garlic powder

1 c. milk (NOT skim)

4  oz. Parmesan cheese

Salt & pepper to taste

½  - 1 cup Left over baked chicken or  rotisserie chicken shredded or chopped up in cubes

¼  lb. pasta – linguine, vermicelli, or whatever you like, cooked to package directions

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add pasta and carrots. Cook for 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente. Reserve a least 1 cup of the pasta water and pour off water .
  2.  Blanch the broccoli and add with the pasta and carrots.
  3. While pasta is cooking melt butter in saucepan, add cream cheese and garlic powder, whisking until smooth. Add milk a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps. Stir in cheese, salt & pepper. Remove from heat when reached desired thickness (thin with milk if gets too thick as it stands or you can use the reserve pasta water as well)
  4. Mix with hot pasta, vegetables, and chicken and serve immediately. 

Oh yeah let me tell you a few things when you make your Alfredo Sauce it should look like this:

Please don't freak out when you add your cream cheese and it start to curdle TRUST ME that is normal just make sure you keep whisking to get the butter and cream cheese melted. Also make sure you have your stove on medium low because it will burn fast so you can not leave it on the stove. When you add the milk, make sure you add it  slowly it will give you a creamy texture. I PROMISE.

Well Until Then My Friends
