Alfredo sauce tastes so good but is usually full of fat and calories. To cut down on the fat I make a sauce using chicken broth and cream cheese. It takes just a few minutes to make and the whole family enjoys it.

flour and chicken broth

Add chicken broth, garlic and flour to a skillet over medium heat. Whisk the ingredients together.When the flour is incorporated, you will ad in the cheeses.

wisk in cream cheese

The cream cheese takes a few minutes to melt completely. Use a whisk to make the sauce nice and creamy. Stir continuously as you heat the sauce.

This sauce is best served right away. If you have a delay for the rest of the food, keep the sauce on low heat. If it cools off, it becomes thick.

  • Add meat to the sauce. We like to add seafood such as shrimp or crab meat. You could also add cooked diced chicken.
  • It is wonderful served with broccoli! A good way to get your kids to eat their vegetables.
  • If you are using a 14 oz. can of chicken broth, you will have leftovers. I place the broth in a container and freeze it.
