One pan chicken alfredo


4-6 serves


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 600g diced chicken breast
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1L (4 cups) water
  • 1 x 300ml carton pouring cream
  • 250g penne pasta
  • 2 tbsp chicken stock powder
  • 2 cups parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped


Step 1. Gather all ingredients together.

Step 2. Heat olive in a frying pan over high heat and cook chicken until golden. Add garlic to the pan and cook for one minute.

Step 3. Pour water, cream, pasta and chicken stock powder into the pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until the pasta is al dente. Take care to stir regularly so the pasta doesn’t stick together. Taste and then season.

Step 4. Add freshly grated parmesan to the pan and stir through the sauce. Sprinkle parsley and stir through and grate some extra parmesan over the top. Serve.
