Plated Chick Alfredo

 

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 boneless, skinless grilled chicken breasts, but into chunks
  • 2 cups roasted broccoli (tops only)
  • 8 ounces fettuccine
  • 2 TBSP. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 TBSP. flour
  • 1 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan

 

What to Do: 

In a pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta, drain, ice bath, and set aside.

Heat the olive oil over medium-low heat.  Add garlic and cook until golden brown.  This should take just a minute or two.

Whisk in the flour until the mixture is smooth (about 2 minutes), and then gradually add the chicken broth.  Now, add Greek yogurt, milk, pepper and nutmeg.

Bring to a low boil and simmer until the mixture thickens.  Continue to stir periodically.

Once it’s a good consistency, stir in 3/4 cup of the Parmesan.

Add cooked chicken and broccoli to the sauce, as well as the pasta and toss it all together.
