Chicken alfredo is a classic for a reason, but made the classic way, it is a dish you need to hover over slightly. The butter needs to melt, the garlic needs to simmer in it, and the cream needs to slowly be added. And once all of that comes together with pasta, there's really no time to sit around and wait. It needs to be served right away. But what about those busy nights when you just want chicken alfredo without all the hovering? Enter this chicken alfredo casserole.
Okay, so there are a few steps in this recipe as well before it all bakes together in the oven. But, make this on a lazy weekend when you've got some time to spare, and it freezes beautifully. You can also boost the protein and make it an even fuller meal by adding peas. So on those nights you just want a lazy chicken alfredo, this casserole is there for you.
To cut down on some prep time, buy a rotisserie chicken from your local deli!
