My Little Italian Kitchen: Chicken Alfredo (My Way)

This is a step-by-step recipe because I don't have a written one for it. This was created by me!
So, grab your lap top and let's head to the kitchen......

These are some of the ingredients I used.
2 chicken breast halves, cut in cubes
1 pkg. zucchini and summer squash sliced
1 c. chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, sliced or minced
1 half of a green pepper, chopped fine
and 1 jar (15 oz.) Meijer brand Roasted Garlic alfredo sauce

I am very happy with the organic line of products that Meijer has to offer. They are low calorie, low sugar, and they don't contain all those extra preservatives. And the Meijer products are packed full of flavor.

Pour a little olive oil into a large skilled (med/high heat).
Place your chicken, onion, garlic, and green pepper in the hot skillet
The seasonings I used were: oregano (approximately 2 TBS) and Italian seasoning (approximately 1 TBS). You can add as much as you like.

I cooked the chicken until done.

I added the zucchini and summer squash, tossed it with the chicken for a couple minutes.

I put my pan of water on to boil for the linguine pasta (from Trader Joes - Spinach and Chive & Garlic Basil). It only takes about 5 minutes to cook in boiling water.

I poured the alfredo sauce over the chicken mixture, stirred, and then placed a lid on top (turned heat down to med/low) to simmer until the pasta is cooked. That gives the zucchini and summer squash time to soften (while the pasta is cooking).

Place linguine pasta on a dinner plate, top with alfredo mixture, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Then enjoy!!
