The Yummiest Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo | Gluten Freee & Dairy Free!


Good morning, everyone. I hope you had a great weekend. We spent most of Saturday and Sunday decluttering the closets, cleaning the floor trims, and preparing the house for listing. Our evenings consisted of dinner and movies. On Saturday night, we took a drive to pick up Chinese food and ate out of the takeout containers while parked out in front of our new house. I don’t know about you, but that’s the best kind of date night.

On Sunday morning, we were watching T.V., and there was a scene with a family eating fettuccine alfredo, and it looked so good. I’ve never craved alfredo, and have always been more of a red sauce type of gal, but I had a crazy craving for fettuccine after that. I started thinking back, and I can’t even tell you the last time I had fettuccine. I think it’s been over four or five years 😳 I decided to make a gluten-free & dairy-free version for dinner! And the outcome? Delicious!

No one would be able to tell that this is dairy-free. The sauce tastes buttery, creamy, and flavorful as ever. Between both of us, there was hardly any left. The best part was that it only took about 30-minutes to make.

If you’re not a fan of chicken, try making it a seafood alfredo with scallops, shrimp, and crab meat. That used to be my favorite type of alfredo, and I may try that out with this recipe soon.

And if you want to keep the recipe low carb, swap out the fettuccini noodles with spaghetti squash! I used the Cappello’s grain-free pasta noodles because I think they taste super fresh and homemade compared to the refrigerated pasta.

3 Easy swaps to make the recipe plant-based:

After adding just the right amount of spices, I could almost do a happy dance in the kitchen (ok, maybe I did) because I knew this recipe was going to be a hit. It has so much flavor, creaminess, and it’s almost identical to the real deal alfredo sauce. I always use plain crackers for my taste tests while cooking because it helps me determine which spices it needs more of.

There’s something about cooking on Sundays’ that I look forward to, but coming up with a recipe that is a hit, makes it so much better! I get super excited to report back and share it with you all. I truly cannot wait for you all to try this recipe out!

  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast or more if you want it "cheesier"
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives chopped

Fettuccine

  • 1 box Capello Fettuccine Pasta follow directions on the box

Instructions

Pan-Fried Chicken

  1. Heat a frying pan on high with the avocado oil. Season the chicken breast with garlic salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning.

    Cook each side for about 4 1/2 minutes.

    Use a thermometer to read 165+ for cooked chicken.

    *this is a great time to start boiling the pasta!

Dairy-Free Fettuccine Sauce

  1. Add chopped garlic, onion, and shallots to the frying pan on medium-high.

    *for more flavor, do not wash out the pan after cooking the chicken.

  2. Once the garlic, onions, and shallots have softened (not browned), add the flour. Once the ingredients are coated, mix in the coconut milk, cashew milk, and chicken broth. Turn the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer.

  3. Mix in the black pepper, garlic salt, onion salt, Italian seasoning, nutritional yeast, and fresh chives.

    **give the sauce a taste test to determine if it needs more pepper, garlic, salt, or nutritional yeast!

  4. Add the sauce to a mixing bowl with the cooked fettuccine and mix until the pasta is completely coated. Top with the cooked chicken, a few pinches of black pepper, and a sprinkle of chives.

    I’m making this tonight! Recently dairy free (against My will 😛) so I appreciate these recipes! Looking forward to more dairy free. We always have beans on hand. Any ideas?

      Ohhh yaya!! I hope you enjoy! 😃

      BEANS ARE MY LOVE LANGUAGE!

      I love using beans as a meat replacement in tacos! I cook them with taco seasoning, onions, peppers, and add them to corn tortillas with avocados 😋 THere’s also chili, black bean brownies, black bean enchiladas, salsa, or just mashing it and adding garlic for a dip!

    YUMMM!! that looks so good, I know what’s for dinner tonight. I love white sauce pasta’s, since going dairy and gluten free I have missed them so much, and its hard to get a good one. the last time I had fettuccine, Alfredo was about 5 years ago in Italy. Have you tried to make dairy and gluten stuffed ravioli, I can not master it. would love to see if you could make a recipe that works. have a great week.

    Looks delicious! Is the almond flour pasta low carb?

    Reply to Whitney
    • Taralynn McNitt

      It’s not low carb but lower in carbs compared to the regular pasta. If you want a low carb option, do spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.

    This looks delicious and I will definitely be making for dinner this week! I’m trying so hard to lose weight, with my workout program and meal planning, but I have a hard time coming up with lunches. What are your go to’s? (I’m allergic to soy so I can’t have tofu – even though your tofu stuff looks so good!)

      Hi, Leah!

      Yay 😊 Please let me know what you think when you try it!

      I always love having chili, tuna salad wraps, grilled chicken kale salads, avocado and egg toast, and Buddha bowls!
