Equipment

  • 1 Food Processor
  • 1 Large Saucepan
  • 1 Large Pot
  • 1 whisk

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb Cooked Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Cottage Cheese Low-fat
  • 1/2 cup Freshly Grated Paremesan Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 2 cloves Garlic Minced
  • Salt & Pepper To taste
  • 2 tbsp Medium Buffalo Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Basil
  • 8 oz Fettuccine Pasta Or pasta shape of your choice

Instructions
 

  • Slice your cooked chicken breast and set them aside.
  • To make the sauce, combine milk, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, cornstarch, minced garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor, processing until smooth, and then transfer the mixture to a saucepan.
  • Whisk in buffalo sauce and dried basil, heating and stirring occasionally in the saucepan for 10-15 minutes until it thickens to your liking.
  • While the sauce is cooking, boil water in a large pot, add salt, and cook the fettuccine according to the package instructions until it's al dente, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • Drain the cooked pasta, combine it with the Alfredo sauce in the pot. Toss everything together to coat the pasta with the sauce.
  • Place pasta in bowl and top with chicken slices.
  • Serve immediately, and if desired, garnish with extra grated cheese. Enjoy!

Notes

Serving size = 1/5 recipe
You can use pre-cooked chicken for convenience, but it's also a great way to use leftover grilled or roasted chicken.
Adjust the buffalo sauce to your preferred level of spiciness. You can add more or less to suit your taste.
Feel free to customize the recipe by adding vegetables like steamed broccoli or sautéed bell peppers for extra flavor and nutrition.
