This was really wonderful! I did change it just a little. I cooked the chicken in a little olive oil and poltry seasoning. I also used 4 cloves of garlic. I used a blender instead of a food processer because I was afraid of the texture. The sause was smooth and creamy I would never have known it was a lower fat recipe. My family loved it!!! Read More

This recipe tastes OK but is very easy and is healthiest white sauce I have found. I will make it again. If you are looking for a very creamy traditional alfredo sauce then find a recipe with cream because you won't be happy with this low-cal substitute. Read More

This was a very good recipe. I had a couple of changes but nothing too major. I didn't have any flour so I used Chicken frying mix (which is mostly flour base with seasonings). And I also added McCormick s Chicken seasoning while it was simmering. This combo adds flavor and complements the chicken very well. I didn't have to add any salt. My family enjoyed! Thanks for sharing. Read More

This was a fantastic virtually guilt-free base sauce! I embellished with the spices as other reviewers did & added sauteed onions and bell peppers (omitted minced onion) and boy was it rich! I doubt anyone could tell it wasn't heavy cream! Tip: Remember to adjust your sauce accordingly when adding more pasta &/or vegetables to recipe -- I didn't and ended up short on sauce -- better to err on the side of too much in my book; ) Bon Appetite friends!

Not bad at all. I used ground chicken which gave it a weird texture; next time I'll use cubed like the recipe calls for. The kids ate it and my man had no complaints. Read More

A good facsimile of the real thing...but needed a little more of a zing I thought. Perhaps a sharper cheese? I added chicken and sauteed mushrooms to mine...yummy! Read More
