Skinny Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli


Ingredients
2 cups of cooked chicken breast, cut into chunks
2 cups broccoli florets (I got the frozen broccoli…so easy!)
8 oz fettuccine
2T extra virgin olive oil
2t minced garlic
2T flour
1 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1/4 cup skim milk
1 pinch ground nutmeg
3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Directions
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside
In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat
Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the garlic is golden, 1 to 2 minutes
Whisk in the flour until smooth, about 2 minutes
Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, sour cream, milk and nutmeg
Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly
Lower the heat and simmer, stirring gently, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes
Stir in 3/4 cup Parmesan
Add cooked chicken and broccoli to sauce mixture, followed by the cooked pasta
Toss to combine and serve with more Parmesan, if desired

    It’s always nice to find good recipes with fewer calories. Your recipe would probably be good served over spaghetti squash for even fewer calories! Pinning!

    Looks so yummy!! I’m vegetarian, but could easily make it without the chicken. And I really need to eat more broccoli!

    Thank you for lightening up this classic! It is one I have avoided because of the high calorie count.

    Our family loves any type of alfredo dish but we don’t make them often because they are less than healthy. Thanks for sharing a better option at Funtastic Friday.

      Hi I’m a greenhorn when it comes to cooking and I would love to try out this recipe so i was just wondering what does the “T” stand for? Is it a teaspoon or a tablespoon?
