CHEW THE RIGHT THING
Fettuccine Hungry Chick-fredo
In honor of National Fettuccine Alfredo Day (tomorrow
yay!), HG's whipped
up yet another delicious and completely guilt-free Alfredo dish. A heaping
bowl of our creamy pasta with chicken has less than one-fifth the amount of
calories in Macaroni Grill's ridiculous version. And ours will also save you
more than 90 fat grams. Yes, NINETY! Check it out:
1 package House Foods Tofu Shirataki noodles, Fettuccine Shape**
1 wedge The Laughing Cow cheese, Light Original Swiss
2 tsp. fat-free sour cream
2 tsp. reduced fat grated parmesan cheese
5 oz. skinless chicken breast; grilled with nonstick spray only
Optional: salt, pepper, and paprika
Drain and rinse noodles well. Dry noodles thoroughly (use paper towels to
soak up as much moisture as possible) and use a knife to slice them up a
bit. Next, top noodles with both cheeses and fat-free sour cream, then
microwave for one minute. Stir and microwave for one additional minute.
Slice up chicken breast and add to pasta. For added zing, season to taste
with salt, pepper, and paprika. Enjoy!
Serving Size: Entire recipe
**HG Alternative: If you're absolutely against using the fabulous Tofu
Shirataki noodles, you can still save fat and calories by preparing this dish
with 1 cup cooked whole wheat pasta, instead. Nutritionals would then be:
395 calories, 5.75g fat, 446mg sodium, 43g carbs, 4g fiber, 3g sugars, 44g
protein = 8 Points.
Macaroni Grill's Fettuccine Alfredo w/ Chicken
Okay, it's no shocker that pasta drenched in buttery cream sauce isn't
exactly a diet-conscious dinner choice. Fettuccine Alfredo has been called
a "heart attack on a plate" and our pals over at the Center for Science in the
Public Interest once deemed it the worst dish, nutritionally speaking, that
they had analyzed in 23 years. But never in our wildest dreams could we
have imagined nutritionals THIS frightening. We knew it would be bad, but
97 fat grams bad?! 1,300+ calories bad!?! 35 POINTS BAD?!?!?! Yikes!
Scarier still is the fact that the chicken in this dish accounts for 18 of those
fat grams. Did the chicken bathe in oil before hopping into the bowl? But,
like most humans, we get giddy at the thought of tender chicken chunks
swimming in rich cheesy sauce with flat pasta noodles. And now whenever
we get a craving for this stuff, we march straight to the kitchen to whip up
the latest in guilt-free 'fredo -- Fettuccine Hungry Chick-fredo!
Serving Size: 1 entree
