Chicken-Sun Dried Tomato-Spinach Alfredo

When the wind chill is -20F I just don’t feel like going anywhere.  I found a chicken breast in my freezer and here’s what I came up with.

  • Garlic
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • Half and half
  • Cream cheese
  • Nutmeg
  • Parmesan
  • Roquefort
  • more Garlic
  • Crushed red pepper in oil
  • 1 Chicken breast
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Spinach

Saute diced garlic in olive oil slowly until just golden, add a tbsp. or two of flour to make a roux. Cook flour mixture a minute or two.   Whisk in chicken broth and little half and half (1-2 tbsp.), bring to boil and simmer till thickened, whisking every so often.  Whisk in cream cheese.  Add some grated nutmeg. Whisk in parmesan and Roquefort. Set sauce aside.  It’s ok if the sauce is a little thin it will continue to thicken while resting and more when added to the pasta.

Saute a little garlic in olive oil, add crushed red pepper and diced chicken. Cook till chicken is almost done.  Add sun-dried tomatoes, then spinach and finally sauce.  Toss with cooked pasta.  Finish with add’l Roquefort and freshly grated black pepper.
