Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts

Dinner Tonight: Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts

To start this sunny morning off I prepared Scrambled Eggs, 2 Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage
Links, toasted 2 slices of healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not a bad way to start the morning! After Breakfast, Mom had bought some flowers for some pots on the deck so I got them all potted. Then got the leaf blower out and cleaned around the deck and driveway. After Lunch did some light house cleaning then back outside. It's our warmest day out there today, 85 and mostly sunny. Took a spin on the cart around the neighborhood and got the mail while out. Tried to relax a bit, my back is giving me some problems. Spending too much time lately in cart and wheelchair. For Dinner tonight Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts.

Well I'm trying the Bear Creek Alfredo Pasta Mix tonight for Dinner. Love all the Bear Creek
Products I've tried so far so I'm trying the Alfredo Pasta tonight. Comes packaged with the Pasta and Sauce Mix.

To prepare it; I added 4 cups of water to a 2 1/2 quart saucepan and brought to a rolling boil. Whisked in the Pasta and Sauce Mix. Brought it back up to a rolling boil. then reduced the heat to a medium boil. Cooked for 15 minutes, stirring often. Removed it from the heat and let it sit for 8 minutes. The sauce thickened up perfectly. I like my sauces on the thick side and this one turned out great.The Pasta was good size with good taste and as I said the Alfredo Sauce was spot on! Another great dish from Bear Creek to have in the Pantry.

For the Chicken I used Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts - Italian Style. I love using these, just keep them in the freezer until needed. To prepare them; Lightly coat a skillet with Pam Cooking Spray. Heat the pan over medium-high heat, add breasts and brown 1 minute per side. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 10 minutes, to 170ºF internal temperature, turning frequently. Fried and done! These also bake up perfectly also.

To serve everything I took a bowl and made a bed of the Alfredo Pasta, sliced up 1 of the Chicken Breasts and added them to the top of the Pasta. And topped everything off with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. Excellent dish! Past and Chicken is a natural. Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a bowl of Smart Pop - Pop Corn.
