Low Carb Chicken Alfredo is a quick and easy chicken recipe the whole family will love. I used a low carb alfredo sauce along with some leftover grilled chicken tenders. You could easily use a store-bought rotisserie chicken instead. This recipe is diabetes-friendly and can be adapted to make it one the whole family will enjoy. In the instructions below, I will show you how to serve this low carb chicken recipe on either a low carb bed of spiralized veggies or a mix of veggies and pasta. Let’s get to the recipe!
How to make low carb chicken Alfredo:
1. Start by sautéing green onions, garlic and mushrooms. Choose your favorite type of mushroom-here I have used portabellas.
2. We will be adding cherry tomatoes to the recipe for a bit of color and flavor! Use diced fresh tomatoes if you prefer.
3. A shot of the sautéed veggies with the chopped tomatoes added.
4. Fresh spinach will be chopped then added with the other veggies. The spinach will be cooked briefly-just enough to slightly wilt.
5. Here’s a pic of the chopped fresh spinach and chopped chicken added to the veggies.
6. Spiralized squash will be sautéed just a few minutes. This will make a low carb pasta substitute to serve with the low carb chicken alfredo. The gadget in the picture is a handheld veggie spiralizer.
7. The final step- add store bought low carb alfredo sauce. Simmer and serve over squash noodles or pasta!
