This 5-ingredient dinner is not your average chicken Alfredo recipe. This easy, cheesy pasta casserole is packed with palate-pleasers like creamy Alfredo sauce and shredded mozzarella that everyone in your family will love, plus white-meat chicken and chopped broccoli for a hearty dose of protein + veg. Best of all, it preps in 15 minutes flat and is ready to enjoy in just over half an hour. This one’s a winner.
