Made this and it was good!
401 calories per serving (less calories if you use less noodles and 1 % milk) 36g carb, 15 g fat over 25 grams of protien

Serves 2

11 oz chicken breast
5 oz fettuccine
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 and 1/4 cup 2% milk
2 tbsp heavy cream
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp fresh or freeze dried parsley

cut chicken breast into bite size pieces and cook. In a large pot of boiling salted water cook pasta according to package instructions and drain well.

Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk and cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in heavy cream and garlic powder until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

Stir in Parmesan cheese and cream cheese until melted. Add cooked chicken to sauce and stir. Stir in the pasta to coat. The sauce will thicken after removed from heat. Add more salt and pepper if needed. Serve with parsley on top. Enjoy!

This was really good but next time i want to try real garlic and maybe smoked parmesan. The 2 servings were big and we both had extra on our plate
