Chicken + Broccoli Alfredo Pasta

Another day, another one-pan recipe. Well…not exactly. You really need a large pan/skillet and a large pot, but it all ends up in one pan by the time you’re finished cooking. First, let me say that I am not a big fan of canned Alfredo sauce. It’s too much like mayonnaise in taste, look and smell. And I don’t particularly care for it when it’s heated up the next day. Generally speaking, it’s just not my thing. So initially when I found this recipe, I figured I would just have to take an L on this recipe and make something that I don’t really like because I know my fiancé would eat it and at the very least, it’d be something different for my taste buds. I was very surprised to find that this particular recipe with the word “Alfredo” in the title did not actually use any type of canned Alfredo sauce. Instead the recipe calls for heavy cream, milk and flour. It tasted so good! Instead of looking, tasting and smelling like mayonnaise, it’s more subtle and so much better. You can honestly barely see the sauce once the chicken, pasta and broccoli are mixed in. It’s very light but you can certainly taste it. Anyone who feels like they don’t like Alfredo sauce should probably try this recipe. More than likely, if you don’t like Alfredo sauce, you’ve probably just been using/eating a sauce that was too heavy.
