If you’re looking for a scrumptious dish to feed the whole family, this baked chicken alfredo is just what you need! The addition of mushrooms and spinach gives it an extra little “kick” that will make it a family favorite!
This dish is perfect for busy nights. I just make it ahead and stick it in the fridge until I need it. Then I bake it as needed. It’s perfect for nights when we have soccer practices. Just open a bag of pre-made salad and some cottage cheese and call it a meal.
I love that we can use rotisserie chicken in this recipe. No need to cook and shred chicken. Just keep a bag of preshredded rotisarie chicken in your freezer and bust it out as needed.
