Chicken Zoodle Alfredo

Megan3283 views

I know I am a little late to the bandwagon, but I must say that I am loving these Zoodles (zucchini noodles)! I have a hand-held spiralizer that works well to make beautiful spirals of zucchini squash into zoodles. What a great way add more vegetables into your diet and cut a few carbs out for people like diabetics who need to watch their intake! Tonight, I made zoodles into an Alfredo dish that was delicious. My 7-year-old was inhaling the stuff as he told me I needed to take a picture and put this on the website. So, here it is. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 Chicken Breasts 2 1/2 Cups, fully cooked*
  • 4 Medium Zucchini Squash spiralized
  • 8 oz. Spaghetti Noodles

Alfredo Sauce

  • 2 Cups Low-fat Milk
  • 1/3 Cup Cream Cheese 3 oz.
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Cup Parmesan Cheese grated

Instructions

Zoodle/Pasta/Chicken

  • Bake or grill chicken breasts until fully cooked through. Cut into bite sized cubes and set aside.
  • Prepare Alfredo Sauce. Set aside.
  • Bring a pot of water to boil and cook Spaghetti noodles until tender.
  • Meanwhile, spiralize the zucchini squash and place them in a large, non-stick skillet. Steep the zoodles, covered with a lid for about 5 minutes.
  • Strain the spaghetti noodles, and add them along with the chicken and Alfredo sauce to the zoodles. Stir to combine. Serve immediately.

Alfredo Sauce

  • Combine milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt in a blender. Blend on high speed until totally smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • In a large sauce pan, sauté the minced garlic in the tablespoon of butter for about 30 seconds. Be careful not to overcook the garlic.
  • Over medium-high heat, add the milk mixture to the saucepan of garlic and stir continuously with a wire whisk until the mixture begins to thicken and bubble.
  • Remove sauce pan from the heat. Use a rotary cheese grater (affiliate link) to quickly shred the parmesan. Mix in the Parmesan, stirring until it melts completely.
