Chicken Alfredo with Zoodles

Creamy parmesan bacon and chicken Alfredo with zucchini noodles, a skinny, tasty and healthy dinner made in 30 minutes {gluten-free, low-carb, clean eating}

Looking for a delicious and quick recipe for dinner which is also healthy? Stop searching, you’ve found it! Chicken, bacon, garlic in a simple homemade cream sauce, served with zucchini noodles – sounds healthy and tasty, isn’t it. This creamy, gluten-free bacon chicken Alfredo is ready in less then 30 minutes, it’s easy, simple and clean, made by only seven ingredients, served with the always-winner zucchini noodles.

Alfredo sauces are usually made with flour, but it works perfectly good without any grain. My Alfredo sauce contains chicken breast, bacon, butter, heavy cream, sour cream and grated parmesan. Feel free to use just heavy cream, half-and-half, milk/vegan milk in this sauce. Any cream/milk would be fine, just add as many grated parmesan (or any other cheese) is necessary, to the sauce to become dense and creamy.

This gluten-free Alfredo sauce recipe is made with simple and delicious everyday ingredients, maybe it’s not the original Alfredo recipe, but it’s perfect. In a large skillet heat the butter, then sauté the chicken breast, when it’s almost ready add the bacon and garlic. Finally add the cream stir well and cook for 2-3 minutes, then add the cheese, stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is creamy. Season the Alfredo with thyme, salt and pepper.

Instead of pasta, serve zoodles with this rich and creamy sauce, it will go just amazing. I sautéd the zucchini noodles for 2-3 minutes to get some cooked but crunchy noodles. You can also add the zucchini noodles to the boiling sauce and cook it for 2-3 minutes, but serving them raw is also a good option.

This creamy, thick and smooth, garlicky cheesy sauce is so flavorful and delicious and is also healthier than the original Alfredo recipe. Plus serving it over zucchini noodles instead of pasta, makes it even more tempting. Well, is it a great no guilt dinner recipe, or not?
