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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

__________

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 450ยฐ 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??! ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Upon reheating, get your grub on!! ๐Ÿ˜‹
