I love Chicken Alfredo. In fact, if we go to a restaurant and it’s on the menu, I will get it. I recently spent time in New York and ate at a REAL Italian restaurant in Little Italy and I was obsessed with their Alfredo. So much so that I was ready to try to recreate it when I got home.

But then I remembered that I am also obsessed with not spending a lot of time in the kitchen!

And so my quick and easy Homemade Chicken Alfredo recipe was born.


It uses basic ingredients that you can almost always find in your pantry:

Ready-Made Cooked Chicken breast strips. ( I used these )


Heavy Cream



Any type of Pasta

This is how easy it is:

Start cooking your pasta of choice ( make sure you add salt to your boiling water!).

While your pasta is boiling, heat up butter, add your garlic and after 1-2 minutes, slowly add in your heavy cream and cheese, whisking all the while to incorporate.

Add your chicken ( I heated mine in the microwave) to the mix and serve hot with tomatoes for garnish and MORE CHEESE.

Done. Everyone is happy.

This recipe seriously takes me about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Perfect for any weeknight!
