Chicken Alfredo

Tonight I made a delicious low-carb version of my homemade pasta alfredo, which I have been missing lately. Basically, I substituted chicken for the pasta and served it over fresh spinach.

It turned out looking like this:
Mommy liked it, and so did I! The sauce gave the dish a "comfort food" feel, while the spinach added freshness and did not become slimy at all. It was also fairly fast to make. If one was in a hurry, It would be possible to use store-bought sauce, but homemade is always yummier.

Low-Carb Chicken Alfredo

Three chicken breasts, cut into small-ish pieces to cook quicker

4Tbsp. Butter
4Tbsp. Flour
2c. Milk

1tsp. dried Basil
1tsp. onion powder
1tsp. garlic powder
1c. Shredded Parmesan
1c. Shredded Mozzerella

Salt and pepper to taste. (I use lots of pepper)

1 bag fresh Spinach

Start cooking the chicken however you choose. (I fried it, and it took about as long as the sauce did to cook.)

Melt butter in a saucepan, then add flour and stir constantly until the mixture bubbles. Add milk extremely slowly, stirring well between each addition. Add seasonings and cook over medium heat until the sauce begins to thicken. (Don't forget to check the chicken!)

When sauce reaches desired thickness, add cheese and stir well. By now, your chicken should be done cooking as well, so you're all set!

Serve over fresh Spinach and enjoy!
