Creamy Chicken Broccoli Alfredo over Angel Hair Pasta

"Fresh from scratch Alfredo sauce with Chicken and Broccoli served over angel hair pasta. This creamy recipe is different from the jarred sauce and not the same as restaurant style which tends to be a little thinner. This sauce is so good you might just want to double it. But be assured this recipe is perfect for just two people"
