Tami Smith
Rich creamy alfredo sauce, juicy grilled chicken, and oodles of pasta collide in the most macro-friendly way possible. With 31g of protein per serving and only 233 calories, you won’t believe how delicious and filling this healthier twist on a classic pasta dish is. Chicken Alfredo is my favorite Italian dish, and this lightened version allows me to eat it whenever I want while still nailing my macros!

Instructions
 

  • Combine all Cottage Cheese Alfredo Sauce ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the sauce in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until heated through and smooth. Add additional seasonings to taste.
  • While the sauce is warming, chop up your chicken breast into bite-sized cubes. Add chicken to sauce and allow to warm on medium/low heat, stirring frequently to avoid burning.
  • Follow package instructions for heating konjac noodles in a serving bowl. Once heated, pour sauce and chicken mixture over top of konjac noodles, top with additional parmesan cheese, and enjoy! I package of noodles per serving.

Notes

You are more than welcome to swap the konjac noodles for real pasta. We like to use a protein pasta like Banza in this recipe.
This recipe also works well when substituting the pasta for a veggie like broccoli or zucchini.
Feel free to customize your High Protein Chicken Alfredo by adding extra seasonings!
Store any unused alfredo sauce in the refrigerator inside an airtight container. This recipe works great for meal-prepped lunches or dinners!
