Can I freeze Grilled Chicken Alfredo?

Grilled Chicken Alfredo usually doesn’t freeze well. When thawing the alfredo the sauce breaks down and isn’t as creamy.

How to Store Leftovers:

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.  We like to store in individual container and store in the refrigerator for a quick lunch.

How to Reheat Chicken Alfredo:

When you are reheating the chicken alfredo, we recommend add a little more heavy whipping cream or milk. This helps to create a creamy texture again.
