One pot chicken alfredo

Wish I had a better photo of this but I only did a video on Instagram stories about this, and posted a small close up of it after. Didn’t think I’d blog about it but here we are.

I’ve never been one to linger in the kitchen longer than necessary. Cooking for me is more of a functional chore than a passion if I’m being honest. I definitely dread meal time and thinking of what to feed the crowd. I try and limit my amount of time in the kitchen as much as possible.

Thanks to the culinary wonders of TikTok I’ve stumbled upon a handful of mouthwatering recipes that have made their way into my limited cooking repertoire. This being one of them, however I tweaked the recipe a smidge since it was way too rich for even my liking.

My eldest, bless his discerning taste buds, turned up his nose at the sight of chicken. But fear not, I’ve got a trick up my sleeve. Shredding the chicken post-cooking (a breeze with the trusty mixer) and burying it under a blanket of cheese turned this dish into something resembling mac ‘n’ cheese…… with a different sauce. Unfortunately he saw the process of it all being made and still wouldn’t touch it. I mean, it’s beige food, he’s supposed to love it.

Anyway here it is, plain’ and simple:


  • 16oz dry pasta (shell pasta works wonders)
  • 1 jar of Alfredo sauce (I’m partial to Target’s Good & Gather brand)
  • Cooked chicken (approximately 2 cups, shredded)
  • 3 cups chicken broth/stock
  • Seasonings to taste (Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper)
  • Mozzarella cheese (the more, the merrier!)


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Grab a 16″x9″ pan and layer in the dry pasta.
  • Pour the Alfredo sauce over the pasta.
  • Add the cooked chicken on top, ensuring it’s evenly distributed.
  • Pour in the chicken broth/stock.
  • Season generously with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Give it all a good mix, making sure the pasta is coated in that creamy goodness.
  • Cover the pan with foil and pop it in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • Once the timer dings, uncover the pan and sprinkle on copious amounts of mozzarella cheese.
  • Slide the pan back into the oven and broil until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

Feel free to get creative with this recipe! I’ve tossed in handfuls of chopped spinach for an extra veggie boost, and served it alongside some air-fried broccoli. Yum! My middleboy had two bowl fulls of it.
