A lot of people hate to use the stove or oven when summer rolls in. I’m not one of them. I have no problem throwing a freezer meal in the oven during the summer. Why? Because it frees up precious time for me. If I feel like it’s too warm in the house, then go outside. Still too hot? Hang out in the basement.

Let’s be honest. As long as you’re not holed up in a hot kitchen to make dinner, it’s not too bad anyway. This baked chicken and bacon Alfredo is the perfect meal to throw in the oven, set a timer, and forget it. It’s also a fantastic recipe for using up leftovers. I got my shredded chicken from the leftovers of a baked store chicken. You know, the pieces too small for anyone to decide worthy at the original dinner you ate it.
