Very Cheap Meals

CHICKEN ALFREDO BAKE

Ingredients
1 Jar Alfredo Sauce
8 oz Noodles
1/2 package Chicken Breast
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup tablespoons Milk/Chicken Broth (optional)
1/4 bag Veggie~ Snap Peas
Bread~ Garlic Bread (frozen)

What to do:
1. Boil your noodles until soft or al dente. Drain them and set aside.
2. Cut up your chicken (We used 3 breasts) into cubes. Add your chicken, with a little salt and pepper, into a bit of olive oil and cook in a frying pan until beautifully brown.
(Some people boil their chicken. That works too!)
3. Mix your chicken, noodles, two jars of Alfredo together with a bit of milk/broth. I like to add the milk/broth to help keep this from getting dry.
4. Put into a baking dish. Sprinkle your mozzarella cheese on top.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, when sauce is bubbling and the cheese is slightly brown it is ready! Serve with bread.
