Amanda says, “My inspiration for this meal comes from another recipe on our site: http://freezermealsforus.blogspot.com/2010/10/chicken-alfredo-ann-road-meal-swappers.htmlI find I need to double the recipe to feed my family of 5 so I updated the recipe below to reflect the doubled measurements (well, except that I quadrupled the cheese LOL) to make 1 meal.”
8 oz Fettuccine Noodles
1 bag Frozen Broccoli Florets, 12-16 oz
1/4 cup Butter
1 lb chicken breast, cooked and cubed (I use 3 chicken breasts per meal)*I like to season the meat with basil, parsley, and rosemary
2 bottles Alfredo sauce, 16 oz
2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
2cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Pepper
To prepare for freezing
Cube chicken, then cook in butter. When cooked, add Alfredo sauce, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and pepper. Let simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Then let cool and pour into gallon sized bag. Freeze flat.
When you swap give each person a bag of sauce, frozen broccoli and box of dry fettuccine noodles.
To cook after freezing
Defrost chicken and sauce. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Heat sauce in separate pan. I steam my broccoli in the microwave then add it to the sauce. When the noodles are done, I mix it altogether.
