Healthy Chicken Alfredo

By

If you love pasta but need a way to make it a tad healthier look no further! This was a crowd pleaser all around and gave us plenty of leftovers. Still as yummy and moist the next day! 

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 lbs of chicken strips
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 cups fat free milk
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Pasta noodles of your choosing! We utilized fettuccine (use whole wheat to be extra healthy!)
  • Broccoli (we used an entire bag of frozen broccoli since we already had on hand)!

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven 375 and cook chicken 25-30 minutes until done based on size and thickness of chicken. I used strips so they were done in about 25. I added light layer of Italian seasoning & garlic powder to chicken. 
  2. While chicken is cooking, boil water and cook noodles thoroughly.
  3. Cook broccoli to directions (stove/microwave) at the same time to ensure food doesn’t get cold! Lots of various processes to this one going on at the same time.
  4. Put your multitasking gloves on and find a skillet for sauce on stove on medium-high heat. 
  5. Add coconut oil to skillet first before adding mixture of flour and milk. I would recommend whisking the flour and milk in a bowl before adding to skillet.
  6. Stir for 2-3 minutes and then turn heat to low. 
  7. I added the cooked chicken to the sauce mixture to add more flavor. This is optional! 
  8. Allow the sauce to sit and thicken for 5-10 additional minutes while stirring and checking on consistency. Add in broccoli. 
  9. Drain noodles and add your chicken/broccoli/sauce on top! 

Voila! Much healthier alternative to a classic traditional alfredo sauce. Just as delightful and my entire family approved!
