June Dairy Month - Day 1

Chicken Alfredo

June is Dairy Month. My intentions are good: share recipes throughout the month that use a dairy product.

I'll start with cooking the pasta while the chicken is baking. Sorry, no photos of cooking noodles.

Now for the sauce. No sauce from the bottle for this recipe. Saute garlic in butter,

Add the milk,whisk in flour, keep whisking, or else you'll end up with scorched stuff in the bottom of the pan. Trust me on this.

Parmesan cheese,

a dab of cream cheese spread.
Continue to whisk until it's all smooth, and thick, and creamy, and tasty.

Chop up the chicken, add cooked broccoli,

stir it all together, heat it through.

Serve it up nice and hot and tasty.
Here's to all the girls who provide those wonderful dairy products.
You know who you are.

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo
1-1/2 C uncooked egg noodles
1 Tsp salt
1-1/2 Tsp butter

2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 Tsp ground black pepper
Salt, to taste
1/2 C chopped, cooked broccoli

Prepare egg noodles according to package directions, adding 1 Tsp salt to water. While noodles are cooking, melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat, add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour and milk, continue whisking until mixture thickens. Stir in cream cheese spread and Parmesan cheese, continue to whisk until cream cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Add pepper.
