Roasted Broccoli Chicken Alfredo creamy alfredo mixed with flavorful chicken and roasted broccoli makes a quick, mouth-watering dinner.
I made Roasted Broccoli Chicken Alfredo after spring-break when all the boys activities started back. Mondays are so busy for us; I need simple dishes that come together quickly.
I’ve been making a lot of pasta dishes lately, mostly because I can usually make the whole meal in one pan and in less than 30 minutes.
Although, had I been the only one eating this, I would have left out the chicken. If Wesley had been the only one eating it, he would have left out the broccoli! We totally have different tastes in food. However, we did both like the creamy sauce with a slight hint of garlic. Doesn’t garlic make everything better?
Roasted Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Tips
You can use leftover chicken for this recipe. You could also roast chicken with the broccoli, boil chicken or use a rotisserie chicken. You just need two cups of cooked chicken.
Roasting the broccoli gives it a unique flavor if you don’t have time to roast it (30 minutes at 450 degrees F) boil the broccoli with the pasta instead.
Likewise, if you don’t have time to roast garlic, use fresh and mince it finely.
You can also turn this into a vegetarian meal by omitting the chicken and using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
You can also serve this recipe as a side dish by omitting the chicken.

I am making this today and the ingredients say 1/4 cup heavy cream but I don’t see on the instructions where you add the heavy cream so I’m just assuming it goes with step 5 and hope it comes out good 😉
Made the roasted broccoli and chicken alfredo today. I believe you may need to back and check the measurements for the black pepper. that was god awful made me and whole family sick. If wasnt for the pepper would have been good but quarter cup is a little excessive.
omg, that would make i god awful, it should be 1/4 teaspoon. I’m so sorry!! I have corrected the recipe. Thanks for pointing that out to me.
A very mouthwatering dinner indeed! I would not mind having this for dinner tonight. I just love its creaminess and the roasted broccoli looks pretty appetizing. What a great dish!

Mouthwatering yes! This looks delicious! What a fun way to change up a meal. Thanks for sharing!
I usually steam broccoli or the veggies I use for this type of dish. I bet the roasting gives it awesome flavor! Will have to give that a try next time.
