Chicken Alfredo

Alright, here we go:

Chicken Alfredo

clove of garlic
1 chicken breast
4 oz cream cheese
1/4 margarine
1/4 half n half
parmesan cheese
whatever vegetables you like...I use a normandy blend (steam them)
whatever pasta you have on hand (cook before serving...ha...ha...ha)

sautee the garlic for just a minute or two. add the chicken breast. cook it. chunk it as you cook it. when its all cooked, add the margarine and cream cheese. simmer until they're mostly melted. add the half n half. keep cooking. when its mostly creamy, add parmesan cheese to taste. serve the sauce over the pasta and vegetables.

This makes enough for about 3 people. I usually double it and Matt takes it in his lunch. Some of you may even want to triple it. It makes the whole house smell heavenly. (and by whole house, I mean our 4 room apartment, so really just like 100 square feet, but who knows, maybe the neighbors can smell it too?) This is definitely not part of our portion controlled diet, but I like to make it for date night. Grandpa Pratt also seems to really enjoy that.
