Garlic Chicken Alfredo Sauce For Your Pizza Or Pasta
by Vincent DiLeo
This Alfredo sauce recipe is easy to make. This variation of a very tasty recipe is one that is popular in my household. Just add a chicken breast with lots of garlic and you have a great tasting garlic chicken Alfredo sauce for your pizza. You should be careful in the preparation of this topping. If you cook the cheese too long it will begin to separate and not look so appetizing. It still tastes great, but it should look creamy and mouth watering.
This Homemade Alfredo Sauce also makes a great sauce for your pasta. You can use a fettuccine noodle and create a wonderful tasty Fettuccini Alfredo dish. Be sure you cook your noodles (al dente) not to too soft.
If you are making pasta you can also try adding some butter to make your sauce creamier.
Experiment with your own herbs and spices. No recipe is cast in stone. We all have different tastes and you might come up with your own very tasty and unique Alfredo Sauce.
2 cups of half and half
3-4 cloves of fresh garlic chopped
1/2 cup of Romano cheese
1/2 cup of Asiago (You can substitute Parmesan-Reggiano or any of your favorite Italian cheeses)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
A dash of nutmeg
2 tablespoons flour
Pepper and salt to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
Chop your chicken into bite size pieces and gently sauté in olive oil until lightly brown and remove from the heat Start Sautéing the chopped garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil until lightly brown.
Be careful not to burn your garlic, it will make your entire Alfredo sauce bitter. Add all the other ingredients except the cheese. Heat the creamy mixture to a boil and then let simmer until it thickens. Add your pre-cooked chicken to your mixture and stir until warmed. The last thing you do is add all of the cheese and then top on your pizza or fettuccine noodles.
