Tonight you join us for an experiment on progress. As I have started writing this I don’t know how exactly it’s going to turn out, but it should be a fun journey. Tonight we are going to try this awesome Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo Casserole Recipe. Now I’m not normally a Gluten Free kind of person. I really, really like bread. But more and more people are trying out Gluten Free products for a variety of reasons so here we go.
Our task was simple. Take three possible items, head to Walmart for some shopping, and then create a new recipe or meal idea. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find one. I was bummed. I really wanted to try making banana pudding with Gluten Free animal crackers. But alas, it was not to be, at least tonight. I’m still looking and if I find it that will come. But we still had two other items to try out so we put on our thinking caps and came up with…
Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo Casserole Recipe
We started out with 8 slices of Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread on a cookie sheet. We brushed both sides with some olive oil and then sprinkled lightly with salt and Italian seasoning. The bread went into a 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes. Then we took it out and flipped all the bread over and sprinkled salt and Italian seasoning on that side. Back in for another 5 minutes. Now I know what you are going to say. That’s not casserole! No, it’s not. But if you let the bread cool, put it in a Ziploc bag, and smash it up you end up with Gluten Free Bread Crumbs. You can also eat the bread by itself. Talk about yummy. I had to stop the hubby from eating all the bread so I could turn it into bread crumbs.
Now, onto the main event! We started with two packages of Udi’s Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo; this is a prepared meal in the frozen food section. We let it sit out for a bit to thaw a little. We also set out 16 ounces of cream cheese to soften. We combined the Chicken Alfredo and cream cheese in a 9 x 13 baking dish and put it into a 350-degree oven. After about 15 minutes we pulled it out and stirred to get all the cream cheese incorporated into the Chicken Alfredo. Feel free to add in about ¼ cup parmesan cheese and/or some tasty vegetables from the garden and mix it in well. It was now time to take all of those tasty bread crumbs that we made earlier and spread them all over the top. Take another 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and sprinkle it all over the bread crumbs. Back into the oven it goes for another 20 minutes. After 20 minutes the bread crumb topping will be all brown and crunchy. The Alfredo will be all melted and bubbly. And there you go. Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo Casserole. Excuse me. It’s time to eat.
