Easy, Healthy{ish} Chicken Vegetable Alfredo

Friends, you all know I’m no gourmet chef.  As much as I love to eat, I leave the recipes to professional chefs in the family {my brothers-in-law}.  You’ve probably noticed that it’s a very rare thing to find a recipe here at One Artsy Mama.  BUT.  Today I wanted to share with you something I recently discovered.  It was one of those rare instances when we weren’t all eating dinner together as a family, so for once I got to experiment with something cheesy that my lactose intolerant hubby can’t eat.  It’s  oh-so-delicious, and you know if I made it, it has to be quick and easy, right?  So, here’s my super simple, somewhat-healthy new favorite meal!  

Prep Time: 25 minutes 

- 1 package fettucine
- jar of Alfredo sauce {I loooove Classico Creamy Alfredo and it only has 4.5 g of fat per serving}!
- 1 package Tyson grilled chicken strips
- fresh vegetables, chopped {I used zucchini and broccoli this time, but have also used peppers}
- 1 T vegetable or olive oil  
Bring water to a boil and cook pasta according to box instructions.
In a separate saucepan, heat alfredo sauce over medium heat, stirring frequently.
Heat oil in a nonstick frying pan and add grilled chicken and vegetables.  Sauté until heated well and vegetables are tender. {approx 5-8 min}.
Drain pasta.  Add vegetables and sauce.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy!
 This post is not sponsored in any way by Classico or Tyson, although I wish it were…lol!  Companies, if you’re reading and you want to send me free sauce and chicken, I’m all about it!!

Another great thing about this recipe is that you can make as much or as little as you want.  Since I’m the only one in my house who will eat it, I can cut up just enough veggies for me and use a partial box of pasta so that I don’t end up with so much I’m eating it for a week…then again, that might not be a bad thing…

So, there you have it, friends!  Serious yumminess!

I so intended to get a few different and really great pictures of this so I could submit it to foodgawker or something, but, well…this happened.  Sorry.

Looks like you’ll have to make your own.

    You’re so smart to add veggies to your alfredo. My hubby adores alfredo, and this would be an excellent way to sneak some green onto the plate! :)

    Looks really yummy. I might have to try this. I like that you can make just enough for one person.

    Mmm, that looks absolutely delicious! I’ve made alfredo in the past, but it’s been a long time. I think you’ve inspired me to make it again! Thank you for the recipe!
