If you're anything like me, you love alfredo but never want to take the time to make the sauce from scratch and alfredo in a jar is just not gonna cut it. I came across the most amazingly delicious and gourmet tasting cream sauce that is the easiest thing to make.
This recipe again came from Real Simple, and did not disappoint me in flavor or simpleness.
I made this sauce twice this past week and I ate the leftovers, so I ate it three times in a week. That's how delicious it is.
So, the basic original recipe is as follows:
1.Season 8 thin chicken cutlets (1½ pounds total) with salt and pepper. In batches, cook in olive oil over medium-high heat until golden; remove.
2.Add 1 pound sliced mushrooms to pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook until tender. Stir in 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/2 cup goat cheese, and 1/4 cup chopped parsley. Serve with the chicken.
My boyfriend picked up the 4 ingredients at the store: chicken, goat cheese, cream, and mushrooms. He got a garlic and herb goat cheese that was extremely delicious, since we both love garlic. I cut the recipe in half, using 2 regular breasts, which I cut up into 4 total cutlets. Instead of parsley I threw in some green onions I had left in the fridge which added a nice crunchiness. I also roasted some asparagus to go on the side which was great with the dish. I forgot to take a picture but believe me, we were oohing and aahing over it.
The second time I made this, I used shrimp instead of chicken, cooked some onion with the mushrooms, and added some steamed spinach in at the end along with some pasta. So so so good. We agreed, better than regular alfredo sauce. Way better. and easier.
