  • Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup of milk or you can use heavy cream
  • 8 oz. of penne pasta
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of freshly grated Parmesan cheese or you can use the pre-shredded for ease, just don't use the powder that comes in the cans!
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Chopped parsley for garnish


  • 1. Preheat the oven to the temperature on the Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips package (400 degrees F)
  • 2. Spread the chicken out on a cookie sheet and back for 15 to 20 minutes. I like to turn it once for crispiness. I'll also sometimes turn on the broiler for just a few seconds per side.
  • 3. Heat the Tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet and add the minced garlic. Cook for about a minute, careful to not burn it.
  • 4. Add the Tablespoon of flour and mix into the oil and garlic. Cook it for an additional minute until it's slightly browned.
  • 5. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth, then the milk, making sure to whisk away any lumps of your flour mixture.
  • 6. Add the penne pasta, stir and bring to a boil.
  • 7. After it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until pasta is tender.
  • 8. Remove from heat and add the Parmesan cheese and stir.
  • 9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 10. Plate the penne pasta with alfredo sauce, top with the strips of chicken (I cut them into slices) and sprinkle with the chopped parsley.
