Chicken with Broccoli Tortellini Alfredo
Chicken with Broccoli Tortellini Alfredo made with chicken, cheese filled tortellini, fresh broccoli, and a creamy parmesan packed garlic alfredo sauce.
Pasta is a huge comfort food for me. Any type of pasta from spaghetti to carbonara to tortellini. Add in a great hearty alfredo sauce and I am in food heaven. I am picky about my alredo sauce though. I don’t like it bland or too watery so I made this alfredo sauce with loads of cheese and garlic and used some flour to thicken it slightly.
The broccoli is a nice addition to this dish. the broccoli adds a crispness and freshness to the dish. Plus, the alfredo sauce covers up the vegetable for any picky eaters in the family. We all have at least one of those in the family! Make sure not to cook the broccoli too long. Keep it bright green and crisp. I boiled them in a pot today for 4-5 minutes and they were just right for this dish.
Check out all that creamy goodness! Chicken with Broccoli Tortellini Alfredo is so creamy and delicious. When making your alfredo sauce, don’t be afraid to add in that parmesan and garlic to amp up the flavor factor. I also add in a little cream cheese to the recipe to help create a smooth sauce.
Today, I placed the chicken on the stove top with some extra virgin olive oil to get a nice brown on the outside and keep the juices all inside. Cook for 10 minutes on each side and done. No extra seasoning or anything special is needed. Keep the chicken simple. You can also grill the chicken which would be really nice to add in that hot off the grill charred flavor profile.
