FTH’s Creamy & Cheesy Chicken Alfredo
- 1 lb chicken breast
- 1 cup skim milk*
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
- 8 oz whole wheat angel hair pasta
- 1 clove garlic
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 12 oz broccoli florets
- ¼ cup reduced-fat cream cheese
- 3 Tbsp parmesan cheese
1) In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add broccoli and cook for two minutes, until crisp and bright. Remove from heat and drain.
2) Chop chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add just one tablespoon olive oil to a large skillet. Once oil is hot, add chicken. Cook until browned and cooked through. Remove from heat.
3) In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add whole wheat angel hair. Cook until al dente, around 4 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.
4) In the pan where you cooked the chicken, add the other tablespoon of olive oil. Add garlic and pepper.
5) Whisk in flour, stirring until it’s a thick paste. Add milk immediately, and stir again until the sauce is thick. Add cream cheese and parmesan cheese, and stir until combined.
6) Combine the sauce, the broccoli, and the chicken into the pasta pot. Stir to combine and heat through, then serve immediately.SPECIAL: Researcher Discovers The “Million-Year-Old” Diet That Allows This Tribe To Stay Slim & Healthy… Even While Eating Sugar
