How to prepare the Frugal Chicken Linguine Alfredo Recipe
I am using 1 chicken breast for the recipe and usually there are 3 chicken breasts in one pack. You can freeze the rest to use later. You can cook the rest of the chicken, shred it and add it to this Burrito Bowl Recipe, the Chicken Enchilada Recipe or substitute the ground beef with shredded chicken in this simple Spaghetti Recipe.
