Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Lasagna is a rich and delicious twist on your classic tomato based lasagna. Alfredo Lovers behold!
I am all about casserole type dishes. You put them together, throw them in the oven and you’ve got dinner made. These are especially handy for our super busy nights when we are running from rink to rink (like tonight). I love it because we can just reheat the meal and it tastes just as good as when you first took it out of the oven (sometimes even better).
Now, my kids are all about Alfredo sauce. Whenever we go to the Olive Garden all pasta dishes must have Alfredo sauce on them. So I came up with this recipe for Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Lasagna. I had originally planned on making just Chicken Alfredo Lasagna but I wanted to sneak some veggies in there. It worked out great. The kids devoured it and we still have some left over for lunch today. Bonus!
I made this around lunch time and then just set it aside until after we got home from hockey. It was awesome to come home to a delicious home cooked meal.
So, if you’re looking for a yummy recipe to make ahead, this one is perfect.
(I took a lot of pictures this time…just skip to the bottom for the recipe)
Bake the chicken with a dash of olive oil in a 425 degree F oven for 20 minutes and let sit for 10 minutes for tender and juicy chicken. Flip after 10 minutes.
I love the smell of fresh garlic and butter cooking
Pour your Alfredo sauce allover the chicken and shred away.
Finely chop up your broccoli so the layers fit together nicely.
Lots of cheese = extra cheesy
These Coconut Chicken Nuggets with Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sauce are such a huge hit with the kids
It has been so crazy around my house lately. Three of the Four kids have birthdays in the Fall so we have had birthday after birthday. Yesterday was actually my oldest boy’s birthday. We went to Applebee’s because he was requesting the triple chocolate meltdown for dessert. One of my faves.
I am also helping with managing three hockey teams. Three! I don’t know why I do this to myself. Haha. It’s so much work. With my husband coaching I guess it only makes sense. But I’ve still been cooking up a storm, I just don’t always have time to snap pictures. Half the time we are running out the door to a game while we are eating. But now that the teams are almost all set up and organized I’d like to share a bunch more recipes.
I have had a few posts in the works and I wanted to share this one with you all today. This recipe for Coconut Chicken Nuggets is scrumptious. I love them, the kids love them. Everyone’s happy. I didn’t have much time to take pictures of the process but the end result is all that really matters. And the dipping sauce is so good too! We don’t have a Chick-Fil-A where I live so the fact that I can whip up a similar sauce at home is great.
So, if you’re looking for a chicken nugget recipe with a little twist, give this one a whirl.
This Chicken a La King recipe is great for a quick and easy dinner the whole family will love
Have any of you come across those “Tiny Kitchen” videos where they make recipes except in tiny version?
So not practical , but why do I love to watch them? They are just so cute…. aaaaand make enough food for maybe an ant to eat. The stove is tiny, the pot is tiny, the plate is tiny, and the spoon is tiny. The food is basically cooked over a candle lit mini stove. Nonetheless I’m guilty, I love watching Tiny Kitchen cooking videos.
In my house we need ginormous size kitchen videos. Feeding five hungry guys is no easy job. Someone is always hungry. It’s exhausting. That’s why finding recipes that I can make in a jiffy and that everyone will love is like pure gold to me. This Chicken a La King recipe is exactly that.
My mom has been making this recipe for as long as I can remember. It’s the quick and easy, I’ve got four hungry kids staring at me version. My kiddos gobble this stuff right up and there are never any leftovers. You’ll want to keep this recipe in your back pocket for those quick weeknight meals.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Sweet & Smoky Mustard Pulled Chicken is the perfect blend of flavours to make an unforgettable pulled chicken sandwich
I was so organized yesterday. I made a grocery list, dropped off the kids at a playdate, made it to the grocery store with my littlest one, and got all my groceries. As I’m just about at the checkout I realize I forgot something.
This ALWAYS happens to me.
So I head back to the produce department, where I run into the boys’ piano teacher. We chat for a few minutes about how grocery shopping is such a pain sometimes. I tell her about this amazing grocery store in Minneapolis I went to that you can shop online from. You add items to your cart just like in the real life store. You checkout online and then you pull up to a drive thru to pick up your order!!!
A DRIVE THRU!!! (enter heavenly song)
We both talk about how amazing this concept is and how we’d love to have it in our town. We finish chatting and part ways. It’s at that moment that I realize my wish for this grocery store has only gotten stronger. I totally forgot what I needed, and I was done with zig zagging around the store so I left.
Point proven. If you bring a grocery store to my town where I can drive thru and pick up my order without going in, you’re my hero!
I want to grocery shop in my pyjamas on my couch. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. Why can’t I have a drive through grocery store near me?? 🙁
Anyhow, on to something that makes me happy. My house has been smelling divine all day long. These Sweet & Smoky Mustard Pulled Chicken sandwiches turned out better than I could have imagined and you’re going to love this recipe.
All you have to do is place the chicken breasts in the crock pot…
Make a batch of my Sweet & Smoky Mustard Barbecue Sauce…. (when I first tasted the sauce it had a kick to it, but that mellows out after its been cooking for a while)
Pour about 3/4 of it over the chicken…..
Let it cook on high 3-4 hours or low 8-10 hours…
Shred the chicken up with a fork or two forks and add the rest of the sauce.
P.S I’m sure that using pork would work just as well. 🙂
