Easy 15-Minute Chicken Alfredo Gluten-Free Recipe

Gluten-Free Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Ever have one of those days when you just want to through a few jars in a pot and dinner’s done in under 15-20 minutes? Well, since going gluten-free, that’s an option we don’t usually have. However, I’ve recently found a few good commercially-available items to make a quick and easy gluten-free recipe for chicken alfredo with pasta.

The pasta comes from Trader Joe’s but everything else can be found at almost any grocery store. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, Barilla has a nice rice and corn pasta line that also has a more solid texture.

Prep time: 5 minutes. Cook time: 15 minutes. Servings Made: 4.

15-Minute Chicken Alfredo Gluten-Free Recipe

  1. Bring water to boil in a large pot. Add salt if desired. Pour in pasta and allow to cook for 7-10 minutes.
  2. Add cooking oil to pan and heat (I used olive oil). Cook chicken on one side for 7 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle salt, pepper, Italian seasoning (i.e. basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme) on chicken. Turn over for another 7 minutes.
  4. When done, drain pasta and set aside.
  5. Pour alfredo sauce into pot and heat. Add olive oil, garlic, and pesto. Mix and allow to simmer.
  6. Make sure chicken is cooked through (no pink) and put all ingredients on plate.
  7. Top with parmesan cheese and some seasoning to garnish.

If you really want to speed up the cooking time, use precooked chicken strips. For Celiac sufferers, it’s always a good idea to check labels to make sure it’s gluten-free.

Good luck on your journey! We are gluten and dairy free now due to Hubs issues. It’s hard at first but you get used to it.

This will be perfect to serve when my BFF comes to visit me, she eats gluten-free but we don’t so I’m starting to compile recipes now so I’m ready for when she arrives.

I’d eat that. Just a couple of days ago I had some spaghetti/meat sauce with some Barilla GF Fusilli noodles. It is surprising that many dishes can be adapted to be gluten free.
