Alfredo Chicken & Potatoes

Jump to Recipe

Do you ever just get a craving for a very specific taste? The other day when deciding what to make for dinner, all I could think about was some cheesy garlicky alfredo sauce – but we had had pasta the night before and two days before that. So I put on my thinking cap and decided to give Alfredo Chicken & Potatoes a try and it was worth the risk, indeed!

Alfredo Chicken & Potatoes

I love to make my own sauces, and alfredo is one of those sauces that I make regularly. It really is one of the easiest sauces to make from scratch. Because I wanted it to have that extra taste of flavor, I decided to use fresh minced garlic. You can make it with garlic powder, if you don’t have fresh on hand, it just won’t have the same punch of garlic flavor. I also strongly urge you to use shredded parmesan and not grated. If you the temperature is not exactly right when you add grated parmesan, you some times get a grainy consistency in the end.

You will notice that it says to use two 8×8 baking dishes for this recipe. I did this because I wanted the potatoes to cook more quickly, and if you put them in a larger dish (say a 13×9), the center may not cook through by the time the ones on the outside are done. I know it creates a little extra work, but it will be worth it. It is also great opportunity to omit the spinach from one if some of your family don’t like that.

I would definitely call this an all in one meal, you are not really going to need any sides. About the only side you might want is a bit of garlic bread, maybe, but it’s really not necessary. The potatoes and cheese and chicken are plenty when it comes to being a full meal, and the spinach makes sure that you get your veggies in there too!

PS —- this alfredo sauce recipe is an amazing bread dip or pizza sauce! Probably the biggest issue I have when I’m make it is every one wants to grab a spoon and “check it for me”

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
