Pantry staples to the rescue

With the craziness of back-to-school time and various activities starting up, we rely on easy dinner recipes! But there’s one thing that makes those dinners even easier: having pantry staples on hand that can whip together into a delicious meal.

A dinner made from pantry staples can be a lifesaver, and this baked alfredo chicken is just that. It relies on just a few fresh ingredients, but for the rest of the recipe we’re using everyday pantry staples!

Baked alfredo chicken ingredients

  • For the fresh ingredients we’ve got chicken, parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Both cheeses have quite a long shelf life so you might even have those already on hand! Grab good quality blocks of cheese, they’re the star for this chicken.
  • Alfredo sauce is a pretty common pantry staple and does double duty for this recipe — in the breading and the sauce overtop the chicken.
  • Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb traditionally used as a coating for deep-fried foods. It’s amazing on this chicken! You can typically find Panko near regular breadcrumbs in your store and if you only have breadcrumbs in your pantry, those will work as well (less crispy; still good).
  • We season the chicken with salt and pepper and then add some Italian seasoning and garlic powder to the breading — all basic pantry staples.
  • Last, but not least, serve some BUSH’S® Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans on the side, which should always be in your pantry! 😉

What to serve on the side of chicken alfredo

I’m all about pairing savory with sweet and this savory chicken alfredo goes perfectly with BUSH’S® Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans. These beans are slow cooked and tender navy beans in a slightly sweet sauce seasoned with brown sugar, a little mustard, and just a touch of savory hickory flavor. They’re delicious! Plus, they’re naturally gluten-free and cholesterol-free.

Whip up some roasted broccoli and you’ve got the perfect balanced and easy weeknight dinner.

Quick tips

  • If you have a food scale, use it! You want all the chicken pieces to be the same size so the chicken will cook evenly and nothing can get that more correct than a scale.
  • Freshly grate the cheese instead of using packaged shredded cheese; it melts and tastes better!
  • Right after pulling this alfredo chicken from the oven, grate some Parmesan on top using a microplane for the best texture.
  • The best way to tell if the chicken is done is use an accurate meat thermometer. Ensure the thickest part of the chicken reads 160 degrees F.
