Guiltless Chicken Alfredo Recipe

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!

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
  • 10 ounces pasta, plain and cooked
  •  

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  1. Love this "healthified" version!
  2. Our new sister blog myrecipemagic.com will have all of that information. It will also include Weight Watcher Points for those interested. We are just kicking it off now, so that information will be out very soon. Some of our recipes from older posts already have that info. -The Six Sisters

    I don't usually comment on recipes no matter how much I like them but oh my Lord this is amazing! I'm literally eating my first bowl right now and you would never know it was healthy! And so easy to make, too. Definitely a new favorite! Thanks!
  4. 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!! :)
  6. I made this tonight, it was good, but i would suggest using a little less parm cheese. Mine was very thick so I would suggest using more milk, and less cheese. It was still good, but I'd like it to be a lot less thick. It was really good though.
