A plate of pasta topped with creamy Alfredo sauce and chicken is a hearty meal option. To speed up dinner, instead of making your own sauce, use a jar of prepared Alfredo sauce to simplify the dish. As Alfredo sauce is typically high in fat and calories, compare nutrition labels to find the healthiest option. Adding vegetables to the dish and using lean breast meat also increases the health value of chicken Alfredo. The pasta dish reheats well if you make extra and have leftovers.
