When in doubt, always use a classic and put your spin on it !
Tonight we had some really really awesome Chicken Alfredo. Almost guilt free too.
Here is what I used to make it:
2 cups of 2% milk
1-1/2 cups Parmesan cheese
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp of white pepper
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 to 1 tsp of garlic powder
2 tbls of country crock spread
1 tbls of corn starch
1 lb box of your favorite pasta (salt to season the pasta when boiling as well here)
Tools you will need:
1/2 cup and 1 cup measuring cups
1 large pot for pasta
1 medium pot for Alfredo
1 frying pan to sautée chicken
Wisk/ Wooden spoon / Pasta Fork
My favorite secret weapon – nutra bullet or your blender
For the chicken cut into cubes and add salt garlic powder and black pepper and then at oil and massage the chicken. At this point, on medium heat, put your pan on the stove with some oil in it( about 1 table spoon ). When pan is heated add chicken and cook until completely cooked but try not to brown because it can dry out the chicken. Put to the side and continue to sauce.
In your blender add milk that you outhat you put in the microwave for a minute to warm it slightly, add Parmesan, garlic cloves, salt, white pepper , garlic powder , cornstarch and, country crock spread and blend it together for no more than a minute . It will look grainy when done. Add to the medium pot and put on medium heat and whisk together until thickens. Take off heat and boil pasta. Once pasta is done and drain add chicken and Alfredo, mix thoroughly and serve .
And for a little twist I add red pepper flakes …
