Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo Pasta
Yield 4-6 Servings
1 tbsp. organic grass-fed ghee
3 whole chicken breasts, organic
4 oz. grass-fed butter, unsalted
1 tbsp. shallot, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup white wine (optional)
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
Pinch of sea salt and black pepper (optional)
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F
Step 2: Melt 1 tbsp. ghee in cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts and sear until browned on both sides (about 2 minutes on each side).
Step 3: Once seared, season with seafood seasoning and add to ovenproof baking tray. Bake for about 15 minutes in oven and set aside once done.
Step 4: Get your pasta going. Cook your pasta according to instructions on packet in a pot of water.
Step 5: For the sauce: In a large sauté pan, melt 1 tbsp. of butter over medium-low heat. Add your garlic and shallots and sauté until shallots are translucent.
Step 6: Add your white wine and bring heat up to medium, while wine is reducing, keep on stirring until wine reduced by half and starts to form a thicker sauce with the butter.
Step 7: Add the rest of the butter to sauté pan and stir in mixture until it melts. Turn heat down to medium-low and pour in the cream. Stir to combine with rest of the sauce—it will start to bubble.
Step 8: Let sauce simmer and continue to stir for about 5 minutes (sauce will thicken). Do not turn the heat up as this will break the emulsion.
Step 9: Gently stir in parmesan cheese to the sauce. Once pasta is drained add to sauce and gently mix.
Step 10: Serve pasta with chicken and fresh parsley (salt and pepper to taste)
Step 11: Enjoy!

This homemade alfredo recipe if perfect for when you’re craving something creamy and rich. Although gluten-free pasta would give you the comforting taste of what real alfredo tastes like, I recommend Palmini noodles or zucchini to work just as well.
The wine is optional in this recipe. If you are using wine, make sure to add it before adding the butter and cream, otherwise it will impact the emulsion. You can add some chopped celery or turkey bacon to add more flavor to your pasta as well.

Dr Jockers Comments
This chicken alfredo pasta recipe is gluten-free and tastes amazing! I always recommend using the highest quality ingredients, and you can make this recipe low-carb and dairy protein free if you desire.
Grass-fed butter is full of healthy fats including short and medium chain saturated fats, omega 3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). It also contains healthy sources of fat soluble nutrients such as vitamin A, D, E and K2 and choline which is an important component for brain health.
The parsley, shallots and garlic help provide sulfur compounds and prebiotics to support gut health, detoxification and liver and kidney function. I personally LOVE the Palmini noodles and use them in my pasta recipes. The Palmini noodles are made out of hearts of palm which are low-carb, high in microbiome enhancing prebiotic fiber and taste great!
