Chicken Alfredo • Yum Yums!

Grab your pen and paper; it’s time to make a grocery list for the second installment of Yum Yums!  😊


2 chicken breasts

5 garlic cloves

1 tbsp. olive oil

14 oz. chicken broth, sodium free or reduced sodium 

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 lb. penne pasta

2 cups of grated parmesan cheese

Fresh parsley (to garnish)


1.)  Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a pot.

2.)  Cube or shred chicken, add to pot and lightly brown (about three minutes).

3.)  Mince 5 garlic cloves and add to pot.  Sauté for about two minutes.

4.)  Pour 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and 14 oz. of chicken broth into pot; stir and bring to a boil.

5.)  Add 1/2 lb. of pasta, cover and reduce heat to a simmer.  Let simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

6.)  Remove pot from heat, stir in 1 or 2 cups of grated parmesan cheese.  The amount of cheese you’ll use depends on your preference, but you’ll need at least 1 cup.  I like a lot of cheese; 2 cups was perfect.

7.)  Plate your alfredo, top with fresh parsley, and serve.

Enjoy!  😊
