Quick and Lower Fat Fettuccine Alfredo

Posted on: July 18, 2011

I used skim milk and just a little butter for this recipe and it was still rich and delicious.

Ingredients
1 Tablepoon oil
1/4 pound chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
8 oz chopped broccoli, thawed
1 Tablespoon butter (technically I used 1.5 Tablespoons since that was the end of my stick)
1 Tablespoon flour
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
pinch of nutmeg
3/4 cup Parmesan, grated
12 oz fresh fettuchine

Directions
Set a pot of water on the stove to boil.

In a small frying pan, heat the oil. Add the chicken. In the last couple minutes of cooking time, add the broccoli. Cook until the chicken and broccoli are cooked through.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the flour and cook for a few seconds. Whisk in the milk and cook until slightly thickened. Add the spices and the Parmesan over low heat.

Add the chicken and broccoli to the sauce pan and combine.

Boil the pasta according to the package directions (just a couple minutes). Drain. Add to the saucepan, tossing to coat the noodles.
