I started off this learning project with something easy. I made chicken alfredo! I have made pasta many times before but this time I wanted to find a healthier alternative to make as this is one of my favourite things to eat!
Pictures of my “Healthy” Chicken Alfredo
I know how to make pasta already so I started off by boiling some water and finding some pasta in my cupboard. Whole wheat pasta would probably be a better choice but unfortunately, I didn’t have any at home. The tricky part was finding a healthy alfredo sauce but thanks to Pinterest, I found a recipe.
- olive oil (a healthier fat, or you’re welcome to use butter for the flavor)
- fresh garlic (a must!!)
- flour (to thicken)
- chicken broth (more flavorful than milk; you can also sub in veggie stock)
- low-fat milk (you can use any milk, even soy)
- Parmesan cheese (if you freshly grate it, it will be more flavorful
I also grilled up some chicken with olive oil and garlic. Then I mixed everything together and topped it all off with some parsley. The dish was pretty good. I don`t really think it wads that healthy but it tasted delicious so I didn`t mind!
So I think my first recipe was a success. I found it really easy to find a recipe online and the recipe itself was pretty easy! Can`t wait to find a new recipe for next week!
