How to Make Cheesiest Chicken Alfredo Bake

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather Ingredients, chop veggies.
  2. Mix the six seasonings in a small dish.
  3. Pound out chicken to even thickness.
  4. Season both sides of the chicken.
  5. In a heavy skillet,( I use my cast iron )brown meat in olive oil or vegetable oil; and cook through until juices run clear.
  6. Set aside to cool. Then, slice into even pieces.

    Note: When I make this in the summer, I grill the chicken.
  7. In a medium skillet, brown the mushroom and diced red onions until tender. Set aside.
  8. The noodles can be cooked now, according to package directions, drain. Then I toss them in some olive oil, cover and set aside.
  9. Preheat oven to 350 degree. Grease a 13 x 9 baking pan with cooking spray.

    Make the Alfredo sauce:

    Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, 3 cups of cream, pepper and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  10. Add parmesan cheese and simmer the sauce for 8-10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and become smooth.
  11. Stir in the 2 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese and simmer until smooth. Add nutmeg and stir.
  12. In a large bowl combine chicken, cooked pasta, broccoli, mushrooms, 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Stir in alfredo sauce and remaining 1/2 cup cream.
  13. Pour the mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle the top of casserole with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella and paprika; bake 30 to 40 minutes.
  14. Enjoy!!! It really is delicious
