Chicken Asparagus Alfredo

This is the best quick, simple, and easy chicken and asparagus recipe! Roasted asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. This is an awesome, healthy weeknight meal with a creamy tomato alfredo sauce served over pasta. Next time, I'm going to add mushrooms.

Over the weekend, I was going over some old posts to get the rotten Âs and other weird characters out of them (notice a post with them still in? Send me an email so I can find them and get them out.). I don't know where these characters came from, but they're in a lot of my old posts.

So anyway, I was going through the more popular posts and stumbled upon one called “Stuff My 3-Year-Old Says.”

As I read the post, I was reminded of some hilarious things Allie said when she was smaller.

With tears streaming down my face, I laughed and laughed about boogers and sassiness. Kids are so funny.

When Joe came in the room, he looked at me with concern, and I read the post to him, Grace, and Allie. We all enjoyed a hearty laugh.

You should click over and read it and have a laugh yourself.

At any rate, Joe and the kids cleaned the living room, and I worked on my blog, and we stayed in the living room too long.

By the time we realized we were hungry, we were starving, and there were no plans for any supper.

Joe threw this yummy supper together in a few minutes.

The longest parts were boiling the pasta and roasting the asparagus, but when you let both happen at the same time, it goes quickly.

This whole recipe was based on a jar of pasta sauce we had in the pantry. I had gotten it on a whim at the grocery store, and it really made the pasta delicious. I'd recommend it if you're looking for something new.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Trim the asparagus into 1.5" lengths. Cut the onion into eighths. Toss both with olive oil and spread on a baking sheet (we use a jelly roll pan with slightly raised edges).
  3. Roast veggies for 15 minutes.
  4. While the veggies are roasting, prepare 1 pound of pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  5. Sauté chicken breast with garlic powder and a sprinkle of salt and pepper in a large stockpot until no longer pink. Stir chicken broth into chicken. Add veggies and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the pasta and Alfredo sauce to the pan and stir to coat.
Recipe Notes

I think this would be amazing with some crimini mushrooms tossed in. Just something to think about.

To make this meal bariatric-friendly, you could leave the pasta out in the last step. For non-bariatric eaters, put the pasta on the plate and then top with the chicken/asparagus/sauce mixture.
