When it comes to dinner time, I’m always on the lookout for quick recipes that the whole family will enjoy, especially those easy recipes with chicken. Chicken recipes are usually my go-to for easy weeknight meals as chicken is a cheaper meat and I tend to have frozen chicken breast in the freezer. The kids and I could eat chicken 5-6 days a week, but my husband gets tired of it really quick so I have to try and to incorporate it in new recipes.

Grab a jar of Alfredo Sauce and the possibilities are endless.

Pasta and Alfredo sauce is a quick and simple 10 minute meal, but if you have a little more time there are are a number of recipes you can make with Alfredo Sauce including a Chicken Broccoli Braid and Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken in the Crock Pot or these Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells.

This chicken stuffed shells recipe with Alfredo Sauce has become a family favorite and I love that I can always make a double batch and freeze one meal to use in the future.
