    This was really wonderful! I did change it just a little. I cooked the chicken in a little olive oil and poltry seasoning. I also used 4 cloves of garlic. I used a blender instead of a food processer because I was afraid of the texture. The sause was smooth and creamy, I would never have known it was a lower fat recipe. My family loved it!!!  -  24 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe tastes OK, but is very easy and is healthiest white sauce I have found. I will make it again. If you are looking for a very creamy, traditional alfredo sauce then find a recipe with cream because you won't be happy with this low-cal substitute.  -  07 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was a very good recipe. I had a couple of changes, but nothing too major. I didn't have any flour, so I used Chicken frying mix (which is mostly flour base with seasonings). And I also added McCormick’s Chicken seasoning while it was simmering. This combo adds flavor and complements the chicken very well. I didn't have to add any salt. My family enjoyed! Thanks for sharing.  -  31 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
