Oven fried chicken recipe instructions:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Mix the eggs and oil together in a medium size bowl and pour the panko breadcrumbs into another bowl. Bring out a large pan and cover it with parchment paper and set aside, dip each chicken breast into the egg oil mixture then coat with panko breadcrumbs and place onto the pan then place in the oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. At the same time, cook the pasta on high for 7 to 10 minutes.

Alfredo sauce instructions:

Heat a medium size sauce pan, pour in the heavy cream, heat until it starts to bubble then place the three cheeses, black pepper, sea salt, basil, cilantro, and garlic and whisk together slowly for about three minutes then turn off the heat and place a lid on it to keep it warm.

Cut the broccoli head into smaller pieces and steam cook them then mix it in with the pasta once it is completely cooked.

 

Shrimp instructions:

Take out a large skillet and heat on a high fire, place 1/3 cup of butter, shrimps, black pepper and garlic powder and cook for about 5 to 8 minutes then once they are completely pink, take out and mix in with the pasta as well.

Once the chicken is done, take out and let it cool for 5 minutes then place on a cutting board and cut into slices and set aside. Keep the oven on.

Bring out a casserole pan and spray with nonstick spray then take half the chicken slices and arrange them at the bottom of the pan then place the pasta, broccoli and shrimp mix into the pan, then arrange the rest of the chicken slices on top and pour the sauce onto the top of the pan and place in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until the top browns a little. Take out, let it cool off then enjoy! Pair this meal with a glass of white wine and bread sticks for an italian feeling to your dining room!
