Grilled Chicken over Tomato Alfredo Sauce


Here is another quick chicken and pasta dish.  This might be my favorite one so far!  I absolutely loved the flavors in this dish.  The sauce is a combination of Alfredo and tomato sauce. It was so creamy and flavorful. I seriously could eat this dish every week. I marinated the chicken before work, and Chicken Legs grilled it when we got home while I made the pasta. Dinner was ready in a flash! If you don't have a grill, you can cook the chicken on the stove. Pan sear the chicken in olive oil for 2 minutes on each side and finish it off in the oven at 400 for 10 minutes. This is a super easy and super delicious weeknight meal!

  6. I need to use the rest of my Grill Mates packages, those things are good. Grilled chicken is such a flexible ingredient isn't it?

  7. Can I use minced garlic instead of a garlic clove? If so, how much should I use?

  10. I made this tonight and it was DElicious ! Loved the marinade on the chicken and I actually cooked the chicken perfectly for a change. I used El Pato sauce for the tomato sauce which gave it a spicy kick that we liked. Will make it again and thanks so much for sharing it !

  11. In case anyone has never used the marinade before, please note there is a fairly strong herb taste... for those who ate it tonight, we weren't able to pinpoint what it was, but it was overpowering. The tomato Alfredo sauce was delicious. If I were to make this again, I would probably use half a packet of the marinade in the future and try it that way.
