Homemade Chicken Alfredo


Sharing is caring!

My kids love chicken and they tell me all the time how this homemade chicken alfredo is “just like a chef makes.” Simple, flavorful and definitely one of those meals your kids will eat, this is one of the “staples” of our meal planning.

Plus, the best part is that it’s so cheesy, you’ll be glad you’re at home because you can sop up all the cheese with your baguette or french bread.

No jokes, that’s one of the things that makes having a meal at home so much more freeing. My kids can talk as loud as they want, the menu isn’t an argument and there are no weird stares when I’m wiping my plate clean with the bread.

Or loading up on a second helping. It’s seriously that good.
