Chicken alfredo with mini garlic loaves

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

This was supper last night and it was delicious!

What you'll need:

2 c chicken cut into pieces (this can be any chicken you’d like to use. Just make sure it’s boneless and skinless)
1 pkg dry alfredo mix & ingredients needed to mix it up (1 c milk + 3 Tbl butter)
½ pkg (1 c) penne noodles
2 c shredded mozzarella cheese, divided into 1 c, ¾ c and ¼ c
4 mini sub rolls (these can be found in the bakery)
½ c butter
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp Italian seasoning

For the chicken alfredo:
Cook the chicken in a small amount of butter until cooked through. Cook the noodles according to package directions, drain and put in a large bowl. Cook alfredo sauce according to package directions. Add the chicken and alfredo sauce to the bowl of noodles and stir well. Stir in ¾ c of mozzarella and pour into a baking dish. Top with 1 c of mozzarella. Bake @ 400 degrees for about 10 minutes (just until the cheese melts). You don’t need any other seasonings in this dish; there are plenty in the alfredo sauce. Feeds 4.

For the mini garlic loaves:
Slice the rolls in half. Mix together butter, garlic powder & Italian seasoning. Spread on tops of each roll half. Place under the broiler for about 8 minutes or just until the tops are starting to crisp. Sprinkle ¼ c of mozzarella evenly across the rolls and return to oven. Broil an additional 3 - 5 minutes or until cheese has melted. Makes 8 halves.

Cost:
canned chicken chunks - $2.50
alfredo sauce mix - $0.69
penne noodles - $1.89
shredded cheese - mozzarella - $2.85
prepared sub rolls - $2.50/bag
butter - $1.75/pound
Total - $7.31
