I love creating healthier versions of the recipes my family enjoys and this SCD Chicken Zucchini Alfredo is my newest creation.
It combines all of the things I love about traditional fettuccini chicken alfredo but without the pasta and other additives, we usually toss into this family favorite.
Ever since I can remember, one of my daughter’s favorite meals to have for dinner is chicken fettucini alfredo.
She has always enjoyed this meal and since it is one of her favorites, we eat it a lot!
When she was little I tried to add some healthy ingredients into the basic chicken alfredo recipe that she enjoyed so much and even had her help create it, name it, and cook it.
We added in some zucchini and peppers as well as a few tomatoes and some other veggies that I thought would compliment the traditional chicken alfredo she loved so much.
She named it a name that I will never forget, Rainbow Jeffries.
I love that name and still bring it up from time to time to remind her in case she forgot how cute and willing to try new healthy recipes she used to be.
Now I am cooking healthy dishes for myself and offering her some to share, I think it takes the pressure off and allows her to really taste the delicious flavors healthier options bring to each meal.
She still prefers the traditional but I like to have a healthier option for myself when preparing her favorite chicken fettucini alfredo dish.
Let your kids try this one out and see if they enjoy this healthier alternative to Chicken Fettucini Alfredo. Let me know how your family enjoyed it.
