Chicken Broccoli & Bacon Alfredo

Living in an RV our main source of cooking is outside on our Blackstone Tailgater, but there are days when either we just don’t feel it or maybe it’s a rainy day. When it comes to needing to change things up a bit we look for something to make in our tiny kitchen. Spaghetti is often a go to but today we decided we wanted something different. Our decision was to make Chicken Alfredo but with a bit of a kick up by adding broccoli and bacon! This Chicken Broccoli and Bacon Alfredo will be a big hit with your family or anyone else you make it for!
