Thumbs up Yummy chicken alfredo.

My boyfriend BEGS me for it even tho he knows I'm going to make it every week. It's a real kid pleaser too.

Chicken Alfredo

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder or minced fresh garlic to taste
1/2 teaspoon rosemary (optional)
1/2 teaspoon marjoram (optional)
salt (optional)
black pepper (optinal)
1 package of 3 or 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8oz heavy whipping cream
1-2 tablespoons sour cream
3-5 oz parmesan cheese

*Note: these measurements are just approximate, I don't ever use measuring cups or spoons, I just go by what looks right and how it tastes.

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces
season with ground spices and salt
heat sautee pan and add olive oil
add fresh garlic (if using)
add chicken, cook thoroughly
add cream, sour cream and parmesan cheese
taste test and adjust accordingly (your sauce will taste pretty close to the finished product almost immediately after adding all ingredients but allow for the sauce to cook a few minutes before adding anything)

Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

You can add a couple drops of lemon juice if your sauce seems too thick.

I like to serve the chicken over baby spinach. You could try it with spaghetti squash or LC pasta.

Thanks rpavich!

For some reason I can't edit my post but I wanted to add that I switched from using rosemary and marjoram to Italian seasoning. It's easier for me and tastes better IMO.

Oh yeah, and I use grated parmesan.

I made this tonight and added sliced red peppers and sliced mushrooms to bulk it up a bit. This made the sauce a little more watery, so I think I might try making the sauce on the side in a separate pan, but the red peppers added a nice sweetness and good color.

This was wonderful!

I swapped out the sour cream for 1 oz (ro so) of cream cheese, and also added in 2 cups of fresh spinach. It was a hit! I couldn't believe how easy and FAST this was to put together!

this is as good as any Alfredo sauce I've had. I made mine with shrimp instead of chicken and ate it over spinach. I also saved the remaining sauce for a low carb salad dressing. The rosemary makes it!

Just made this tonight. Got rave reviews from my two boys. I think I made it a bit salty though. I'll definitely adjust my salt content in the future.

Thanks for sharing!
