Recipe For Three Cheese Chicken Alfredo Bake

This month I have been assigned Plain Chicken for The Secret Recipe Club. I am in a new group as I wanted a later posting date, and so I am about to meet a whole lot of new bloggers, Steph being the first. Steph is from Alabama – a place I remember well from my trip to the South. Her one love is travelling, and we have that in common for sure. She loves New York City and it still ranks as one of my top cities in the world, even though I have not been there for over 20 years. Steph is hoping to visit Italy soon, and as you may know, Italy is my home away from home, il mio cuore vi appartiene Italia. For my recipe I chose Three Cheese Chicken Alfredo Bake. Pasta is one meal we eat once a week, with Tandy Tuesday the inspiration behind this.

I did not read the ingredient list before choosing this dish, so I have changed it a bit due to the fact that I cannot buy ready made sauces. They all contain sucrose which I cannot eat. I changed the premade sauce for my own béchamel sauce and Dave gave this dish a resounding thumbs up. I made two dishes from the ingredients, and we shared one!

Three Cheese Chicken Alfredo Bake
 
Ingredients
  • 200g pasta of your choice – I used gnocchi
  • 1l béchamel sauce
  • 15mls olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, skinned and boned
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to season
  • 100g mushrooms, sliced
  • 260g ricotta cheese
  • 125mls grated hard cheddar cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 60mls chopped parsley
  • mozzarella cheese for topping
Method
  1. preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
  2. cook the pasta according to the packet instructions
  3. make the béchamel sauce – this should take as long as your pasta
  4. while your béchamel sauce is cooking heat the olive oil in a pan
  5. season and cook the chicken and the mushrooms
  6. let the chicken breasts rest once they are cooked
  7. drain the pasta and put back into the pot
  8. cover with the béchamel sauce – mix in well
  9. add the ricotta, the cheese, the garlic, the parsley and the mushrooms
  10. slice the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces
  11. add to the mix, together with any juices and mix well
  12. adjust the seasoning
  13. place the pasta into lightly buttered baking dishes
  14. cut thin slices of mozzarella cheese and place on top
  15. bake for 20 minutes until nice and golden brown on top

  6. My sons favorite dish is Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo. I make a sauce I love, but now I “have” to make yours. 🙂 I love checking out different sauces. The baked part is very interesting, and it looks delicious! What a great choice.

  10. Yummy!!! I make a four cheese fettucini that is usually a crowd pleaser. It’s actually supposed to be baked too but I just make the sauce and serve it over fettucini noodles with a myriad of optional toppings.

  12. i’m always a bit uncertain about chicken with cheese. to me its not the best combination. I don’t really know why. I’d rather have beef, fish or veg alone with cheese.

  19. I cook for a diabetic, so I’m well acquainted with reading labels and cooking nearly everything from scratch. To be honest, I don’t mind because it’s probably healthier than the processed stuff in prepared meals and sauces. Your chicken looks delicious.
