You can quickly pressure cook chicken for meals like this, or to save time, buy a pre-cooked Rotisserie chicken and pull off and shred chicken.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Add uncooked pasta, alfredo sauce, chicken broth, cooked and shredded chicken, and all seasonings. Combine pasta mixture well in the prepared baking dish.
