My husband can't seem to get enough Chicken Alfredo.  I don't make it very often because it is usually ranks quite high in the calorie department.  That was, until we found this tasty recipe!  My husband said it tasted better than the "regular" version!

Guiltless Chicken Alfredo Recipe:
Ingredients:
2 cups low-fat milk
1/3 cup (3 oz) low fat cream cheese
2-3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
3 cloves, minced garlic
1 cup grated, Parmesan cheese
2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and sliced
Directions:

Place milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt in a blender and blend until smooth. In a non-stick sauce pan, melt butter on med-high heat and add garlic. Let the garlic saute for about 30 seconds, you don’t want to burn it.

Add milk mixture to the pan. Stir constantly for about 3 or 4 minutes or until it just comes to a simmer. Keep stirring and let it cook for a few minutes more. It should be much thicker now.

When it’s nice and thickened remove the pan from the heat. Add the cheese and chicken, stir it up and then cover immediately. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before using. It will continue to thicken upon standing. Also, if you have leftovers in the fridge, the sauce will thicken almost into a solid. Just re-heat and add a little milk and it will be back to normal again.

  3. I can’t wait to try this! I’ve made one that is better than Olive Garden’s but it’s way to high in everything and so bad for you that it’s good for once a year but it’s out of this world good. I will gladly trade that for this if I can have it more than once a year LOL.

    This is great! Me and my boyfriend were looking for some good and healthy recipes, because we eat the same food all the time and we absolutely love this! Just tried it out and oh my god… we could eat it every day. Thank you for posting it and thank you for posting it on Pinterest – or whoever did it ;)

    Hi Six Sisters! I just wanted to say that I love all your recipes. Every single one I’ve tried is amazing! Quick question, I don’t have a blender. Could I use my Kitchen Aid stand mixer? Also I used grated parmesan topping in my first run of this recipe, like the kind you put on top of pasta. Was I supposed to use shredded parmesan cheese? Thanks!! :)

    • Cyd says:

      Kitchen Aid stand mixer works great! You can use either the grated parmesan cheese or shredded. They will give it basically the same taste. Hope this helps and thanks so much for stopping by our blog! Have a great day! :)

    This recipe was amazing! My husband loved it and ate the whole pan lol. It was so creamy and light. The only thing I changed was I sauteed some mushrooms and added them to the sauce. So good and I can’t wait to make it again!
    Thank You!

    • Cyd says:

      We have never done this as a freezer meal, but you could prepare the chicken and then freeze it. Wouldn’t cook the pasta until ready to eat. Just thaw the chicken portion and then reheat.

    Hello, when I click on the magic button it shows that this recipe is only 200 something calories but when I put it in a calorie counter it says its 511 per serving. Do you know why this might be? THanks!
