Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo - semi healthy

2-4 chicken tenders or 1-2 breasts cooked any way you like.
8oz fettuccini (regular, enhanced, or whole wheat)
1/3 of the brick of reduced fat cream cheese
1 C of Reduced fat Chicken broth
3T parmesan cheese
small garlic clove chopped
4tsp flour (can be whole wheat)

Optional: peas and bacon crumbles

Start your fettuccini boiling - about 12-15mins
While that's boiling, add cream cheese, and chicken broth to a small pot. Stir until the cheese is melted.
Add flour and whisk.
bring to a boil to activate the thickening agent in flour then reduce heat.
Add parmesan cheese and garlic.

Chop chicken into bit size pieces and add to the alfredo sauce.
Drain your pasta and add chicken and sauce to the pasta.

Top with a little parsley if you want.

You can also add peas and bacon crumbles for a more "carbonara" style meal.
