Kitchen Witchery Segment - Alfredo Chicken

This is an amazing and super easy recipe.  Also great when served with noodles.

Alfredo Chicken

Vegetable oil
1 package frozen boccoli, thawed(16 oz)
1 jar alfredo sauce(16 oz)
5-6 boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves
1 green bell pepper, chopped

Preheat oven to 375*. Brown chicken breasts with oil. Transfer to sprayed 9x13in baking dish. Microwave broccoli according to package and drain. Spoon broccoli and  bell pepper over chicken. In small saucepan heat Alfredo sauce with 1/4c water. Pour over chicken and vegetables. Cover and bake 15-20 min.

We discussed chicken before as making the most out of what you have. Also, it can be used to please a crowd of people and make people comfortable without breaking the bank. I am going to interpret this particular recipe as a comfort food that allows people to calm down and enjoy the company of others.

For this recipe we will ignore the oil since it isn't a major part. Alfredo sauce is different types of dairy products mixed with spices. Dairy is about fertility and nourishment. In this instance, let's use the abundance to multiply the joy and well being of everyone that eats this. Garlic is popular for this type of sauce, so garlic can be used to ward off all unhappiness or emotions that may bring down a gathering.

Next we have vegetables. Bell pepper is to me a staple in flavoring. Peppers have a sharp flavor but are healthy, so use the peppers to bring good health to your guests. Broccoli - this one is tricky. Haven't thought too much about this one. The original recipe called for florets, but I don't like only using certain parts of a vegetable that can all be eaten. So, since most people prefer just the tops of the broccoli, use the stems as well and have it symbolize the inclusion and happiness of all.

There you have it, a great dish to bring people together! Add pasta to represent comfort and nourishment of the earth to round it out.
