Tips

Expert Tips

Alfredo sauce is available in jars in the pasta sauce section. You can also find Alfredo sauce in the refrigerator or dairy case, next to the fresh pasta; you'll need to use one and a half 10-ounce containers instead.

When you invite friends over for dinner, you can serve this creamy chicken with a warm baguette and a spinach salad tossed with strawberries and a red-wine vinaigrette.
