One Pan Chicken Alfredo

This one pan Chicken Alfredo is simply amazing and yet so easy to make for a week night dinner. I love how fast and easy it can come together after a busy day at work. I usually make this with a salad and garlic bread.

Instructions
  1. Start by cutting chicken breasts into 1 inch pieces. Season with ½ a teaspoon of kosher salt and a few turns of pepper.
  2. Brown chicken in olive oil over medium high heat.
  3. It does not need to be cooked through at this point, it will continue cooking as it simmers.
  4. Once chicken is browned, add minced garlic and saute for about one minute.
  5. Add chicken broth, cream, and uncooked pasta to pan and stir.
  6. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer.
  7. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in shredded parmesan cheese.
  9. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
Notes
Note: Keep pan covered while pasta and chicken simmer.
