Busy families will adore this 5-ingredient cheesy chicken Alfredo ravioli bake recipe! It's so quick, very comforting, and easy to assemble.
Why you'll love it
This cheesy chicken bake has lots of melty, ooey gooey cheese. It's ultra creamy with Alfredo sauce, and the good news for busy parents is that we're taking a few time-saving shortcuts. It's a creative way to enjoy jarred pasta sauce and rotisserie chicken.
What's not to like about a cozy, piping hot meal out of the oven that's ready in only 30 minutes? This family-friendly ravioli bake will be your new favorite meal for a memorable and fuss-free pasta night.
What you'll need
- Cheese ravioli - we're using the kind found in the refrigerated section
- Alfredo sauce - grab a jar of your favorite variety. I like Classico or Rao's.
- Chicken - I use rotisserie for convenience, but leftover chicken works if you have some to use up or made my Easy Baked Chicken Breast recipe
- Cheese - we're using both parmesan and mozzarella for extra cheesiness! Use freshly grated for best meltability and taste. It's worth it.
Do I cook the ravioli first?
- You don't need to pre-cook the ravioli! It will cook right in the oven.
- This recipe has not been tested with frozen ravioli. I would probably thaw it first, but if you want to try cooking it from frozen, it will likely need more time in the oven.
How to make this chicken Alfredo ravioli bake
This is an overview with step-by-step photos. Full ingredients & instructions are in the recipe card below.
Preheat the oven to 375F. Spread 1/3 of the Alfredo sauce onto the bottom of your 8x8 baking dish. Arrange half the ravioli over top evenly.
The next layer is all of the shredded chicken, followed by another 1/3 of the Alfredo sauce. Top with the rest of the ravioli, then spoon on the last of the Alfredo.
Sprinkle on the parmesan, followed by the mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, until hot and bubbly. Carefully broil for a couple of minutes until the cheese is golden. Let it rest, and season with salt & pepper if desired.
Substitutions and variations
- If you want to use homemade instead of a jar of Alfredo sauce, you may want to double my Homemade Alfredo Sauce to make sure you have enough. It makes approximately 1.5 cups while this recipe calls for 15 oz, which is closer to 2 cups.
- You could use tortellini instead.
- Leave out the chicken if you want a meatless option. It's great as a side dish!
Can I double the recipe?
- Absolutely. I'd straight double every ingredient and use a 9x13 baking dish instead of the 8x8 one our kitchen used for this recipe.
Leftovers and storage
- Leftovers of this chicken bake will last for 3-4 days in the fridge. It may start to dry out a bit, however, so you could add some more Alfredo sauce to liven it up.
- Reheat in a saucepan until warmed through for best results. Don't overcook, or the chicken may dry out.
- I don't recommend freezing this one because of the dairy content.
