How to Make Healthy Recipes Chicken Alfredo

Healthy recipes and Chicken Alfredo – does that sound like an oxymoron? Does it seem like an impossible task to include chicken Alfredo in with healthy recipes? It is not impossible if you switch around a few of the ingredients, and amazingly the result is a creamy and delicious chicken Alfredo that can be included with the healthy recipes. The following recipe is not an exact science, so don’t stress over precise measurements.


Step 1
Dice the raw chicken into bite sized pieces. Healthy Recipes use boneless and skinless breasts.

Step 2
Add several tablespoons of canola oil to a skillet and heat. For healthy recipes choose a healthy oil. Add the chicken and begin to stir fry on high. Add some diced garlic or use powdered garlic. Just before the chicken begins to brown, add the bell pepper and onions, continue to cook until the chicken is a bit crispy in some pieces and all pieces are completely cooked.

Step 3
Shove the chicken over to one side of the skillet. This can be considered one of the healthy recipes because there is no heavy cream, yet there will be some butter added. In the open area add the butter, melt, and then add the flour, stirring to make a paste or roux. Add about a half a cup of yogurt, stir all ingredients together. Add some milk to thin sauce.

Step 4
Stir well, add more yogurt if it needs to be thicker, or more milk if you need to thin. Add more garlic if necessary,to personal preference. Lightly salt and pepper. For healthy recipes use yogurt instead of cream or sour cream.

Step 5
Stir in some grated Parmesan cheese. I use the hard cheese, and grate it myself. About a half of cup, more or less. To stay true to healthy recipes, go a little lighter on the cheese.

Step 6
Serve over warm pasta and top with more Parmesan cheese. Choose the pasta that best fits your healthy recipes needs and desires.
