Best low fat chicken alfredo

I tweeted about dinner and someone asked for the recipe. Upon searching my blog, I realized I never have posted it, even though I’ve had the recipe for a bit.

It’s adapted slightly from Looney Spoons.

Take a couple chicken breast and slice ’em up. While they are sauteing, start the fettuccine noodles. Don’t have those? Use spaghetti. Any long and thin noodle is great. I break mine in half so we’re not twirling all night.

And now for the sauce:

Sautee 1 or 2 cloves of garlic in 2 tblspoons butter. C’mon, it’s only two.

Mix 1 1/2 cups 2% milk with 1 1/2 tablespoons flour. Add to the above after one minute. Don’t let the garlic brown.

Whisk this on medium till it starts to thicken. Reduce heat to low, and stir in 1/3 c parmesan cheese. Good Parmesan, not the stuff in the cardboard shaker thingy. You can halve this if you’re not a huge parm fan.

Simmer that for a minute or two till your cheese is melted. You’ve been stirring noodles and flipping chicken, too right?

Back to the sauce – stir in 1/4 cup low fat sour cream. Heat for another minute or two, maybe drain them noodles.

Serve immediately. you can toss everything together in the pot, or add things to each person’s plate like we do.

Me: everything
Rom: chicken, noodles, light on the sauce
Meg: noodles & sauce
Emma: noodles with some grated cheese on top.
