More Summer Grilling Ideas to Try This Winter
Grilled Chicken Alfredo
You’re going to be splitting a bit of time indoors and a bit of time outdoors with this recipe, but it’s so easy and so delicious, you’ll be adding it to your menu each week!
To start, boil a pot of water, add salt, and cook a package of bowtie noodles according to the directions on the package. Set them aside.
For your chicken marinade, preheat your propane grill to medium-high heat. In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup canola oil, 2 big cloves of minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste, and a dash of crushed red pepper flakes (or more than a dash if you prefer a bit of heat).
Brush your chicken breasts with the mixture, then throw them on the grill. You’ll want to turn your chicken breasts at least once during cooking. The important thing, as with all chicken, is to make sure it’s cooked all the way through. Break out the thermometer and make sure the thickest part is cooked to at least 165 degrees.
Set aside to cool.
For the alfredo sauce, heat your stove top to medium-high heat. Mince another clove of garlic and add it to the skillet along with a few tablespoons of butter. From there, add about ⅔ cup of white wine of your choice. Let your wine reduce, then add ⅔ cup of half and half or milk. Stir constantly, allowing your sauce to thicken.
At this point, slice your chicken breasts into bite size pieces. Be sure to cut against the grain and at an angle for maximum effect.
Once everything looks good, toss noodles and chicken in your alfredo sauce. Plate your dish, top it with your favorite parmesan cheese, and serve piping hot. Enjoy!
