This Keto Chicken Alfredo with Zeroodles recipe uses organic soybean noodles to make the classic Italian chicken and pasta dish with only 4g net carbs.
I just had the most delicious Keto dinner. It was Keto Chicken Alfredo with Zeroodles.
I've actually had some great success with Keto noodle substitutes lately.
I've made Cold Peanut Noodle Salad out of Kelp Noodles and used Shirataki Noodles for Keto Pho and classic Spaghetti and Meatballs. In each case, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the noodle substitutes and normal high-carb noodles.
And Zeroodle Soybean Spaghetti Noodles are no different.
To me, these low carb noodles have the taste and texture of whole wheat noodles. And once you add in some chicken and a tasty lemon thyme Alfredo sauce, you have a really good thing going.
What is Chicken Alfredo?
It's a decadent Italian meal made up of chicken in a parmesan cream sauce. Chicken Alfredo was created in Rome in 1914 by chef Alfredo di Lelio and served at his restaurant, the aptly named Alfredo's. Word has it that in 1927, silent-film stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks discovered this dish while honeymooning in Rome. It's been a crowd-pleaser ever since.
For this low carb version of Chicken Alfredo, you'll start with boneless skinless chicken breasts. And for the sauce, the ingredients are: garlic, fresh thyme, lemon juice, heavy whipping cream, butter, parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
You quickly boil the Zeroodles. Then saute the chicken in a pan with garlic and lemon juice. Add the rest of the low carb Alfredo sauce ingredients to the pan and heat. Then mix the sauce up with the noodles and you are done. You'll have a lovely low carb plate of chicken and noodles in cream sauce with only 4g net carb.
So in less than half an hour, you can eat like a 1920s movie star.
