A Personal Story

I love making this One-Pot Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo for my family, especially during the colder months. It's a recipe that my mom used to make for us when we were kids, and it always brings back fond memories. I've made a few tweaks to the recipe over the years, but the basic concept is still the same. I love how easy it is to customize – sometimes I'll add mushrooms or spinach, depending on what's in my fridge. This recipe is always a hit at the dinner table, and I hope you'll love it too!


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 pound fettuccine pasta
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

Cooking Instructions

  1. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic to the pot and cook for another minute, until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream, and stir to combine.
  5. Add the fettuccine and broccoli to the pot, making sure the noodles are fully submerged in the liquid.
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pot with a lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
  7. Stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted and well combined.
  8. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve hot.
