Chicken & Mushroom Alfredo Dump Dinner Recipe

Chicken & Mushroom Alfredo Dump Dinner Recipe
Almost everyone is busy, and it’s hard to find time to prepare good meals. Dump dinners save lots of time, since there is very little advance prep. Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo Dump Dinner is a good example of a quick dinner that can be made easily on a weeknight, since it takes only about 10 minutes to put together. The only ingredient that needs advance prep is a couple of chicken breasts that are cut up into chunks – about 2 minutes hands-on time. Other than that, everything is layered in a casserole dish, covered, and baked. No need to cook the pasta; it cooks perfectly and absorbs the liquid in the sauce. If you want more creamy sauce, simply add another jar of Alfredo sauce to the chicken broth mixture.

12 Servings

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cleaned of any fat, veins, etc.

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

  7. Top with the remaining pasta, chicken, bacon, and mushrooms.
  8. Spray the bottom side of a large piece of aluminum foil with non-stick spray and tightly cover the dish.
