Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re doing awesome today! Yes, I am totally aware that every day seems like hump day lately. But, just in case this one is hitting really hard, I thought I’d share my super yummy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo recipe with you today.
You know…in case you need some real comfort food!
This easy recipe requires just a few standard pantry ingredients and it takes just 25 minutes to make from start to finish!
I don’t know about you, but for me, that’s a whole lot faster than taking a trip to Applebee’s.
And since it’s one of my oldest daughter’s top 3 favorite meals, it’s requested often!
Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo for the win?
The unfortunate part is, the husband and the youngest daughter aren’t such fans. They really don’t like it at all and it’s hard to get them to eat it.
BUT, every now and then, we’ve gotta cater to everyone, right?
So, instead of forcing it down their throats,
as much as I’d like to, I generally make a second meal whenever I’m making this Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo.
Now, don’t think I’m going all out and making something fancy for the naysayers, because I’m not…
But, sometimes it’s just easier to satisfy everyone! ☺
Since the world fell apart and my oldest daughter has been home from college, I’ve been trying to make some of these meals that she and I love.
Because, when she’s not here, it’s pretty close to impossible for me to get away with making things like this easy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo for dinner!
And we really love it!
So, I’m taking full advantage of that. And you should too…
If you have a kiddo at home that isn’t usually there full time, think about making some of your favorite meals. Things you don’t make as often now that they’ve moved out…
Make individual favorites on separate nights or just whip up family favorites that everyone loves!
And then, when you run out of ideas, try this easy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo recipe! It might just become a new favorite!
Unless you stand on the husband’s side…
In which case, go eat a steak.
