You can enjoy chicken alfredo any way you like it but my favorite is low carb with broccoli and a creamy high protein sauce. Whenever I make it the family devours it!

This can be a one pan meal if you use rotisserie chicken from the market or Costco. If you like this recipe you will love my Low Carb Chicken Zucchini Bake or my Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta Sauce.
