(welcome to those who came here from Pinterest! Be sure to peruse my other recipes here, and say hello!)
There seems to be a growing trend around my blog. Have you noticed? I am on an Italian food kick.
I found this recipe on Pinterest, and knew that I had to make it. It’s not exactly the healthiest of foods. I definitely plan to “lighten” the recipe for future use (i.e. using light sour cream, and making my own alfredo sauce). For the chicken that the recipe calls for, I used my own sautéed chicken recipe, so that the dish would soak up the seasonings from the chicken.
Also, if you’re not a fan of garlic, you can cut the garlic cloves down to one instead of two. If you like more garlic, kick it up to three. In that regard, the cloves I used were pretty large.
This dish itself is pretty not-diet-friendly. If you’re looking for something healthier, you can make some substitutions. Instead of the store-bought alfredo sauce, you could make your own using low fat milk or half and half. You could also sub the sour cream for a light or fat free sour cream, and the ricotta for a low fat ricotta or cottage cheese (although truthfully I never use cottage cheese in my Italian cooking, and used part skim for this recipe).
Nevertheless, this is a delicious dish when you’re looking for something easy! Please let me know if you find other ways to spice this up! Enjoy
