Chicken and broccoli with homemade Alfredo sauce
1/2c butter 1c heavy cream 1.5c shredded parmesan 4 mini babybels (edit: spelling) *trust me, the secret ingredient Salt and pepper
In a saucepan, melt butter
Add cream, simmer 5 min
Add cheese, whisk
S&P to taste
*Can sit on the burner on very low while everything else is cooking
Makes a few cups of sauce – I only used a few tablespoons per serving and saved the rest for leftovers. Confession – I dipped some broccoli in the sauce while it was still cooking. Would definitely add some more cheese and use this as fondue as well!
Also, would have been delicious with mushrooms and broccoli over zoodles to make a veg meal.
Chicken and broccoli –
3 chicken breasts 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets 3tbs butter 1tsp chopped garlic S&P
In skillet over medium heat, melt butter
Add whole chicken breasts – s&p on each side
After chicken is about halfway cooked through, use 2 forks to shred into chunks
When chicken no longer has any pink, add broccoli
Sauté – if you like the caramelized sear on everything can turn heat to high for 5 min. If you prefer softer, leave on medium for about 8 min.
Makes 3-4 servings.
