I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite recipes. Perfect Homemade Alfredo Sauce. It’s sooo NOT heart-healthy for you–which is why we can’t get enough of it! (Life is unfair) But it’s a creamy, homemade, comforting-in-every-way Alfredo Sauce that I promise you will need someday to make your day . . . so here it is:
Easy Cheesy Chicken Alfredo Sauce
1 cube of butter (yup, the whole cube)
3 TB flour
1 cup of whipping cream (the heavier, the better)
1 1/2 cups milk (I actually use skim–not that it helps much, but any will do)
3/4 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
2 cloves of minced garlic (we love garlic and add a little extra)
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk butter and flour in a pan over low until blended Add all remaining ingredients, stirring constantly. Simmer over low to med heat until sauce thickens (at least 20 mins). And never stop stirring . . . ’til your desired thickness is reached.
Pour sauce over:
1-2 lbs of boneless chicken breasts, cooked and seasoned to your taste (I put mine in the slow cooker with some garlic seasonings).
Pasta of your choice
(Also great on pizza or with garlic bread!)
LOWER FAT VERSION:
I have tried to lower the fat on this before. You can do this by using Half n’ Half or canned evaporated milk instead of the whipping cream. Use skim milk, low-fat mozzarella, and just less cheese in general. It helps a little. 🙂
