Meal Prep: Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

If you saw Meal Prep: Mediterranean Chicken Pasta you know I have been working on my meal prep game… without it being boring or repetitive.

While I did smaller batches than the recipes are for, you can easily make them at the same time regardless! That was my goal.

And I’m sure I can’t be the only one, but buying a frozen chicken & broccoli alfredo meal, I was disturbed at how little broccoli there was. Considering one cup of broccoli [an actual serving size] is only 30 calories, it didn’t make sense to skimp on that.

So, let’s make our own! 😉

__________

What You’ll Need:

10 oz Large Shells, cooked & drained

1.5 lbs Chicken

2 tsp. Pink Himalayan Salt

2 tsp. Garlic Powder

1 tsp. Ground White Pepper

1/2 c. Alfredo Sauce, or more to taste

1-2 heads of Broccoli, cut

__________

Same as last time, since I made both recipes together, I used boneless, skinless organic chicken thighs. But you can use anything!

Season chicken with pink Himalayan salt, garlic powder and white pepper.

Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until done.

Let rest for 5 minutes.

Dice chicken & leave in its own juice.

Once pasta is cooked and drained, add chicken with slotted spoon, so as not to transfer any remaining juice.

Add alfredo sauce & stir to coat evenly.

Add cut broccoli. Again, I didn’t pre-cook the broccoli because you will cook it when you reheat to eat later. Who said meal prepping was hard??! 🙋‍♀️😉

Stir to combine all the ingredients.

For what it’s worth, I recommend stirring alfredo sauce before you add broccoli so you don’t drench everything in too much sauce. But you can add a little more – once the broccoli is stirred in – if it looks too dry. Or for a lighter switch, stir in any remaining juice from the chicken.

Place in individual sized containers to freeze or refrigerate. As you can see, no skimping on the broccoli here!!! 💪🏼

Upon reheating, get your grub on!! 😋
