How to make chicken and shrimp Alfredo?

This is probably one of the easiest and simple recipe for any busy weekday dinner. Chicken and shrimps cooked in authentic Italian sauce called Alfredo. I generally use chicken leftovers to make this recipe real quick and easy and this recipe is one of my favorite recipe and my kids eat it without making any fuss out of it.

For this particular Alfredo & chicken recipe I am using shredded roasted chicken, you can also fry or roast some chicken breast pieces if you want. This recipe is really creamy and flavorsome. And additionally it is really easy to make and it’s quite appetizing too. In fact you can easily make this recipe for lunch too.            

Ideally I prefer making sauces at home but when I am in rush I always look for some tasty alternatives which are easy to make and get. One of such product is Knorr Pasta Alfredo flavor. The product is quite reasonable i.e. $1 each for single package and a single package can serve up to 4 handsome servings easily. If you check online, you will find amazon give really nice offers on these packages. Nevertheless I made this recipe with Knorr pasta package and I was fully satisfied when it comes to flavor and taste.

You can add veggies like spinach, tomatoes, corns, olives etc. to make this recipe even tastier. One more thing which I liked about this product is you don’t have to buy pasta and sauce separately, so I believe this package is great for the people who lives alone for living or for students etc. I can’t wait further so let’s start cooking this quick and easy recipe –
