5 ingredient Chicken Gnocchi with Alfredo Pesto

– 1.5 lbs. chicken breast – 2 packages gnocchi (16 oz. each) – 1, 12.6 oz. bag frozen broccoli or about 2 cups broccoli florets – 1 15 oz. jar alfredo sauce – 1/4 cup pesto



Cube chicken and add salt and pepper. Saute in a large pan. You can also bake, if you prefer.


Bring a large pot of water (with a generous pinch of salt in it) to a boil. Add gnocchi. Gnocchi is done cooking when it rises to the surface of the pot. Drain and set aside.


Make broccoli according to directions on bag then add gnocchi and broccoli to pan with chicken in it. Pour alfredo sauce and pesto on top and stir.

TIP: Pesto is used to help cut the creaminess of the alfredo sauce. You may add more or less to suit your taste.
