One-Pot Guilt-Free Chicken Alfredo

Ingredients

  1. 1 pound fettuccine noodles
  2. 1 small garlic clove, chopped
  3. 1 cup plain yogurt
  4. 1 tablespoon butter
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  7. 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  8. 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  9. Dash of pepper
  10. Dash of nutmeg
  11. 2 chicken breasts, grilled
  12. Parsley

Directions

  1. Bring a stockpot of water to a boil and add the pasta and simmer according to the directions on the box.
  2. Chop the garlic and add it to the boiling water with the pasta.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the yogurt, salt, Italian seasoning, and red chili flakes. Give the mixture a stir.
  4. Once the noodles are cooked through, turn off the heat, strain, and return the noodles to the hot pot. Add the butter and toss so the pasta is coated.
  5. Carefully add the pasta to the yogurt mixture and stir until the sauce is evenly distributed.
  6. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and give it another toss. Serve with half a chicken breast on top, a sprinkle of parsley, extra cheese, salt and pepper to taste, and a tiny pinch of nutmeg.
