The most creamy and delicious homemade garlic alfredo shells topped with crispy parmesan garlic chicken. This is an absolutely fantastic meal that will instantly become a family favorite!

INGREDIENTS
Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken:
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, or 6 chicken tender strips (I used tenders)
¼ cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup bread crumbs
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon parsley
Creamy Garlic Alfredo Shells:
½ pound pasta shells
¾ cup heavy whipping cream
4 oz cream cheese, softened
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon minced garlic
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
fresh chopped parsley for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a shallow bowl combine melted butter and garlic powder. In another shallow bowl combine bread crumbs, shredded parmesan cheese, oregano, and parsley. Dip the chicken into the melted butter and then coat in the bread crumb mixture. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked throughout and no longer pink.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta shells until al dente. In a large saucepan cook the heavy cream and cream cheese together until smooth and cream cheese has melted. Add garlic powder, minced garlic, pepper, and salt. Lastly, whisk in the parmesan cheese. Continue to cook over medium heat until heated throughout. Add the cooked pasta shells and toss until coated.
Serve immediately with parmesan garlic chicken chopped on top. Garnish with fresh parsley.

REMEMBER!! WATCH YOUR PORTIONS! I have found that many do best when they control their portions rather than deny themselves food!
