Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli from An Everyday Blessing

One of my all-time favorite meals is Chicken Alfredo. It’s usually the dish I order when we go to an Italian restaurant. However, I rarely make it at home.

So last week as I was trying to think of gluten-free meals for our dinner menu, I thought I’d make an Alfredo sauce to spoon over chicken and broccoli. I didn’t want the pasta (even if it was gluten free) because it would make the meal too heavy.

Surprisingly, this meal took little time to make. Not surprisingly it was a crowd pleaser. My husband asked for it to be put on a regular rotation…and I have to agree!

Today I ate one of the leftover pieces of chicken. Since I had put all the leftover broccoli in with my husband’s lunch the other day, I needed a veggie to go with it. So I quickly steamed some green beans, which also compliment this dish quite well.

And unlike the Chicken Alfredo you take home from a restaurant, this Alfredo did not end up looking like a pool of grease when reheated. It was just as good the second time as it was the first.

I am so looking forward to making this meal again sometime soon!
