Easy One-Pot Chicken Alfredo

It’s that time of year again when everyone is busy busy busy with fall activities!

Between work, school, soccer practice, football games, homework, etc. making dinner may seem nearly impossible!

But as well all know, eating out constantly isn’t very good for your health.

So what’s the solution?

This recipe is the solution. Easy One-Pot Chicken Alfredo comes together in minutes. And just like the name states, there is only one pot so that means little cleanup.

I only use premium ingredients in this recipe, like Challenge cream cheese. Challenge doesn't have any preservatives and it's made with real milk and cream for a taste that's unmatched.

And even though alfredos have a bad reputation for being fattening, this version is actually pretty heatlhy, especially if you use low fat milk, low fat cream cheese, and whole-wheat pasta!
