Hello everyone! Thanks again for the awesome feedback and support on my last few posts. It means so much to me, and to return the favor, I’m proud to present one of my most exciting dishes yet: a main course dinner of creamy fettucini alfredo with chicken and broccoli! I’ll admit that when I first heard about this meal, I expected to struggle in my quest to prepare it. Still, it seemed too delicious to not at least attempt, and to my surprise, it is quite simple to make! Let’s get started.
- One fettucine alfredo with chicken and broccoli microwave meal
Before you begin, you’ll obviously need to purchase the ingredient at your local food store. You can usually find this one in the freezer section near different frozen meals, if you do some digging. A few brands make this, but I’ll recommend Marie Callender’s brand, which has a rich culinary history. When you’re shopping, make sure whatever you choose has both chicken and broccoli, so that you have some protein and a vegetable!
The most important thing to remember when preparing this dish is to follow the recipe explicitly. The recipe is printed on the back of the package, in case you ever forget.
TIP: Don’t throw out the box until you’ve finished preparing the meal. You may need to refer back to the package to make sure you’re following the recipe!
After removing the frozen meal from the package, the first thing to do is cut a slit in the clear film that covers your meal. You can use a knife to make this slit, and if you want you can add one or two more small slits. The slit allows the food to breathe as it cooks in the microwave.Next, microwave the frozen meal for 3:30. During this time, you can prepare your table setting or any side dishes or garnishes that will come with your meal. When the fettucine is finished microwaving, peel back the film.You might be tempted to dig right into your savory meal, but we’re only halfway done! Be assured, some of the meal will still be frozen at this point. Stir the contents adequately at this stage in the recipe.Next, replace the film and but the fettucine back into the microwave. The recipe calls for 1:30-2:30 on the microwave timer at this point. To be safe, we’ll go with 2:00.When it’s done, the fettucine will be very hot. Let it sit for two minutes. It has been in there a long time after all! Finally, pour the contents onto your serving plate. If you prepared it correctly, the entire contents should slip nicely onto your plate.That’s it! It’s that easy. Serve with a few nuts and garnish with parsley, and enjoy this wonderful meal!TIP: The recipe above serves only one person, so if you want to cook for your date night or for your friend, simply double the ingredients! Buy two microwave meals, and make them in succession (or at the same time if you have two microwaves!)
Until next time!
