Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti

Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti 

Not vegan but want to try this recipe, then add some grilled chicken! I love experimenting on food and never realised how fun it is to actually cook vegan and how much flavours you can add to it, without even realising it is dairy and meat free! This delicious Alfredo sauce is very simple and the family will love it just as much!

Method

Note: Chicken and Broccoli preparation can be cooked in the oven or on a grill pan

Chicken Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 180C on Fan/or Grill, and line a baking tray with baking paper. 

2. Place the chicken fillets on the baking paper and evenly sprinkle 3 tbsp Olive oil on the chicken fillets on both sides. 

3. On one side of the fillet add: ½ tsp dried parsley, ½ tsp Oregano, ½ tsp Paprika powder, ½ tsp Cayenne pepper, ½ tsp Onion Powder and ½ tsp Nutmeg. Repeat the same for the opposite side of the chicken fillet.

4. Place in the oven (middle shelf) for about 20 minutes 

5. If using a grill pan then cook on each side for 5-8 minutes on medium heat (or until chicken is cooked)

6. Once cooked slice the cooked chicken in strips and keep aside (and warm)


Broccoli Preparation (probably prepared using oven):

1. Preheat oven to 180C on Fan/or Grill, and line a baking tray with baking paper. 

2. Place chopped broccoli pieces on the baking paper and evenly sprinkle 2 tbsp Olive oil on the broccoli and add 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp Black Pepper and place in the oven (middle shelf) for about 20 minutes (or until you have a crisp/crunchy broccoli head).

3. Once cooked keep aside (and warm).


Alfredo Sauce:

1. In a medium non stick pot, heat on medium temperature the rest of the Olive Oil (3 tbsp), and add the chopped onions (2 medium onions), sliced garlic cloves (3 large or 5 small – medium garlic cloves), 1 finely sliced red chilli,  1 tsp salt and 1 tsp black pepper. Sautee for 5 minutes until the onions and garlic brown slightly. Then add the Parsley and mix this in and cook for another 2 minutes.

2. Mix in the 1½ tbsp (GF) Flour, using a whisk until the mixture is golden-brown. Then add the 400ml Coconut Milk, 1 cube chicken stock + 150ml boiling water and simmer until the sauce thickens.

3. Add in the last bit of seasoning: ½ tsp nutmeg, ½ tsp salt and 1 tsp back pepper and mix this in. Then add the chicken and broccoli and combine this in the sauce.

4. Finally mix in the 400g cooked spaghetti and garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy whilst it is still hot.
