Easy Chicken Alfredo Recipe
I just made one of the easiest meals I’ve ever attempted. I saw it’s easy because I literally just through it together. Normally, I would have to defrost the meat, cook it and then start planning to make chicken alfredo but not this time. I just used a product my husband bought called beyond meat grilled chicken. They also have beefy crumbles but it was sold out at my store because of how popular it is already! Probably because it tastes amazing! To be honest, I had never even considered a meat alternative until my husband pointed it out. I have the hardest time digesting meats so I really don’t eat a lot of them. I tend to drinks lots of protein shakes to help up my protein intake just because I don’t eat much. I’ve tried both BeyondMeat products and they have a very familiar taste when it comes to meat but it’s very easy for me to digest and it tastes great. It’s a perfect way for me to get tender and easy to digest meat with plant protein instead of animal protein. I’m hooked!
Shhhh! Don’t tell my kids because they didn’t even notice a difference either.
What is Meat?
MEAT IS NO MYSTERY.
It’s actually pretty simple: amino acids, fats, trace carbohydrates and minerals, and a lot of water combined to give us that familiar chew, resistance, and variation.
Beyond Meats has taken these inputs from plants and apply heating, cooling, and pressure so they combine just like animal meat!
What you’d have is meat for the future. Meat from plants. Pretty Cool, right?!

Check out this super easy Chicken Alfredo Recipe I made with my BeyondMeat Chicken Strips:
- 1 pkg of BeyondMeat Chicken Strips
- 1 can any brand Alfredo sauce
- 1 pkg of shell noodles
- Boil enough water to cook a small package of shell noodles.
- Cook the noodles.
- While the noodles are cooking, you can either microwave or heat the BeyondMeat grilled chicken on the stove to warm it up. It only takes about 5 minutes or so.
- Once the noodles are done, drain the water from the noodles and add the can of Alfredo sauce.
- I cut the BeyondMeat Grilled Chicken strips into small cubes and added them to my noodles mixture.
- Serve immediately.
