Let’s get right to the meat in the matter. In this case, chicken covered in a creamy alfredo sauce paired with savory cauliflower. You may want to double the batch, because it’s fabulous the next day too. Dig in!

    It's delicious :) do you leave the chicken breast whole or cut to pieces, thanks

    I just made this and it's great! I did the four servings. It definitely needed salt, and I can imagine that experimenting with a white wine in the sauce would be good, but I didn't try that this time. Instead of sour cream, I used 1 cup creme fraiche with one cup heavy cream, and added 5oz of Parmesan (instead of 3oz) and the consistency turned out pretty good (not too soupy). I think this dish works better with the chicken cut up into little pieces. :)

    I made this for a family supper, doubled the recipe, and we loved it! I used uncured turkey bacon, fresh cauliflower, and both whipping cream and sour cream. I also sprinkled pine nuts on top. Yes, the chicken is cut into chunks before sauteeing. Delicious! I think sauteed mushrooms would be a great addition.

    We really enjoyed this. I added more garlic and added hot pepper flakes. This will be in the rotation. ?

    This was amazing! The flavor was spot on and I didn't feel like I even needed noodles- thank you!

    Awesome. I did the half sour cream and half cream. Added mushrooms. Might add pearl onion next time too.

    Can this be made ahead of time and put in a crock pot on warm until ready to eat?

    Absolutely delicious! My non-keto family loved it just as much as me. I had made the garlic butter roasted chicken a couple of days ago (which was also scrumptious!) and used the leftover chicken for this dish. I just cut up the cooked chicken and cooked it for a few minutes in the bacon drippings with garlic to infuse flavour. This made it a super-quick weekday meal!

    What is the portion size

    This was delicious but I think some of the instructions were vague. Such as 20 oz of chicken breast. Cut up? Strips or cubes? I did strips. It came out fine. Thumbs up from my husband too. It'll be in our regular rotation.

    Oops! I never saw the picture! That shows strips. 😏

    It was delicious. I used 1 cup of sour cream and 1 cup of whipping cream. I just wish some the ingredients werent listed in ounces.... I had to guess on some as I don't have a kitchen scale.
