Chicken Alfredo ravioli skillet takes just 15 minutes to make so it's perfect for busy weekdays! Tender cheese filled pasta is mixed with chicken breast, mushrooms, and spinach then covered with the a creamy Alfredo sauce then simmered to sigh inducing perfection.
Whisk in the Alfredo sauce (or the milk, cream, nutmeg, pepper, and Parmesan if you're using that)
Whisk until smooth.
Stir in the chicken breast, ravioli, and spinach.
Simmer for about 2 minutes just to allow the flavors to blend and the spinach to soften.
Sprinkle basil on top before serving.
Heat the milk, cream, butter, and cream cheese whisking until smooth.
Remove from heat and whisk in Parmesan and nutmeg until smooth.
Expert Tip: Alfredo chicken ravioli can be made in a 13x9-inch pan and baked if you prefer. Mix all the cooked ingredients together and top with some Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes at 375F or until heated through. This way is great if you want to assemble it a day or two before you plan to serve it.
I like to sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over the top and run it under the broiler for a few minutes just to give the top a cheesy, golden brown crust.
Make this in an iron skillet so you can take it from stove to broiler (if you're broiling cheese on it) to table.
Cream cheese is normally not in Alfredo sauce. I've added it to this chicken ravioli bake to add creaminess but also the allow for it to be warmed up. A good Alfredo sauce tends to separate if you warm it back up. You can leave it out if you are using a jarred sauce.
I like to sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over the top of the finished Alfredo chicken and ravioli skillet dinner and run it under the broiler for a few minutes just to give the top a cheesy, golden brown crust.
Use shredded rotisserie chicken to speed things up even more.
If you use fresh ravioli rather than frozen it takes just about 3 minutes to cook - a real time saver!
Saute some chopped bacon in with the mushrooms and garlic until it's crispy. Instead of stirring the sauce into the sauteed mixture remove it from the pan, add the sauce, spinach, chicken, and ravioli, and simmer. Top with the bacon and mushroom mixture just before serving.
