Foody Friday: Skinny Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

This week I made a “skinny” version of Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo.  The heavy cream & butter in a normal alfredo sauce are replaced by greek yogurt & olive oil.  Believe it or not, my picky husband said he didn’t notice any difference in taste or flavor. It was quite delicious.

If you want to make it even “skinnier,” substitute the regular pasta for whole wheat!

Finished product, and yes, I much prefer eating out of a bowl.

The recipe is perfect for our family because anything with pasta and chicken is good for Chris (he usually eats around the green stuff) and Elodie and I will eat anything, especially with an extra helping of daddy’s veggies. This one is a keeper in our book!

Elodie loves her broccoli, or “brock” as she calls it.

My only complaint about this recipe are the prep and cook times listed. If you notice in the ingredients, it calls for cooked chicken & roasted broccoli, both of which add additional cooking & prep time. I used this recipe for roasting the broccoli and it turned out quite perfect. I just cooked the chicken in a pan with some olive oil + salt + pepper.

As long as you’re sure to take these things into consideration, then the recipe will turn out delicious! Hope you enjoy 🙂
