Healthier Kinda Sorta Alfredo Sauce

21 Jun

One day my friend Sara and I decided to make dinner instead of going out because it would be cheaper. Being the genius in the kitchen I am (okay genius might be the wrong word), I was able to whip up an alfredo-esque sauce that was amazing!

Here’s how I did it:
Start by putting a couple tablespoons, or a quick drizzle, of olive oil in a large sauce pan. Add a lot of minced garlic. Probably about 3 tablespoons. (I was always told that you can never have too much garlic). Let the garlic brown just a tiny bit and then lay a few pieces of chicken over the garlic. (I usually do one piece for every person). Make sure to move the garlic around while the chicken is cooking to prevent burning. Once the chicken is cooked through, pour milk over it, enough to nearly fill the pan. I use skim milk, but you can use whatever is in your fridge. I just wouldn’t suggest soy milk since it has a sweet taste to it. Then add in about a cup of parmesan cheese and stir. Add since Italian seasoning (about a tablespoon I suppose) and some crushed red pepper (I usually do 3 or 4 shakes so it doesn’t get too spicy). Mix it all up and add in about 2 tablespoons of corn starch to thicken. For the final touch chop up a handful od sun-dried tomatoes and throw them in. Stir and let it simmer for about 5 minutes and set for another 5 minutes then pour over your favorite pasta. Top with a piece of chicken and a sprinkle of parmesan and you’re ready to enjoy.
