Chicken Broccoli Garlic Alfredo Shells are stuffed with tender chicken, cheese, broccoli, and homemade alfredo sauce. These shells are creamy, cheesy and out of this world delicious!
This is one of those meals that you know you love before you even make it. Since life has been on the go and my boys are always at lacrosse practice, my family was especially excited to sit down together and eat this delicious meal. There is nothing better than a home cooked meal in my opinion. These shells included all of the things that we love and made with my favorite homemade alfredo sauce. The broccoli was small enough that even my picky eater loved them.
These shells get stuffed with chopped broccoli, tender rotisserie chicken, cheese and homemade alfredo. They are so simple but yet so delicious!! You then use the reserved alfredo and pour it over the shells and top with some more cheese.
This dinner is a home run! My husband still raves about how much he loved this meal. All you have to do is serve it with a side salad and some crusty garlic bread and this meal is a guaranteed hit! You will want to make it again and again!
