Cheesy Chicken Alfredo Bake

This Cheesy Chicken Alfredo Bake is the perfect dish for a Sunday night family dinner! Gather around the table with plates of this, warm garlic bread and fresh salads and enjoy! This dish is made with an easy to make homemade Alfredo Sauce, tender chicken, farfalle noodles and a bubbly cheesy topping. Satisfy all of your comfort food cravings with this recipe!

Here are some tips for making my Cheesy Chicken Alfredo Bake:

  • I dice and cook my own chicken breasts for this recipe, but you could use shredded chicken that you cook at home or even shredded rotisserie chicken. You could also leave out the chicken all together and make this vegetarian!
  • I had farfalle (bowtie) noodles on hand, so that is what I used in this bake. You could really use any bite sized pasta, like penne, rotini, shells, macaroni or whatever you have and it will be just as delicious.
  • If you have leftovers, they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months to enjoy later.
