Sun-Dried Tomato and Spinach Alfredo with Chicken

Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Alfredo with Chicken

Are you looking for something comforting? Something creamy? Something garlicky? If so, you have come to the right place! This Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Alfredo with Chicken is honestly as good as any you will find in a restaurant. I used a heavy hand with the garlic in this dish, and that flavor combined with the creamy sauce and the sun-dried tomatoes and spinach is just amazing.

This Alfredo sauce calls for cream cheese and a good amount of parmesan cheese to help make it super creamy. I am a big fan of garlic, so there are four cloves in this sauce. Feel free to cut back on the garlic if you wish. I also used fettuccine with mine, just because that’s what I typically see with Alfredo, and because that’s what I had on hand. Any pasta will work with this, though. You could even use zucchini noodles and make this a low-carb dish. Without the pasta, this dish comes in at 11 net carbs per serving. I hope you like this as much as we did!
