Need a fast dinner idea? This was last minute for me and didn’t take but 30 minutes to prep and cook. The sauce is so creamy that you will think you’re splurging!
What you will need
1 Pound chicken chopped
1 Small onion
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp butter
10 oz Cream cheese
1 Cup of heavy cream
3/4 Cup fresh parmesan cheese
4-5 Garlic cloves chopped
2 tsp Arrowroot powder (optional)
2 tsp Dry basil (optional)
A pinch of parsley to top it with
1 medium head of cauliflower chopped and steamed (this only takes minutes depending how much you have)
I use avocado oil, but substitute any health oil that you like. Chop all of the veggies first and set them aside. Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces. In a big pan over medium heat, add your oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and chicken. Season the chicked with salt and pepper to your liking. Let cook most of the way through before adding the garlic in and let cook about five minutes longer. Then, add the cream cheese, heavy cream and parmesan cheese and mix well. Start to steam the cauliflower at this point; it will not take long at all.
Once the sauce is at a light bubble, add in the basil and arrowroot, mixing well to melt the cheeses.
Do not cook the cauliflower with the sauce because the cauliflower holds too much water and you will have runny sauce and not be a happy pig!
