Fettuccine Alfredo is probably my favorite pasta dish.

Traditionally it’s made with butter and heavy cream which isn’t exactly Weight Watchers friendly.

I’ve lightened it up to make it WW friendly plus added bacon, chicken and broccoli!

There are four servings in this Chicken Bacon Alfredo, each serving is 1 full cup. For my WW Personal Points each serving is only 6 points.

I took my Light Fettuccine Alfredo recipe and made some adjustments. Instead of using 6 oz. of fettuccine noodles I used 4 ounces.

Since I planned on adding bacon, chicken and broccoli I wanted to make sure there was enough alfredo sauce.

How to make Chicken Bacon Alfredo:

I think the easiest way to cook bacon is to bake it. I lined a baking sheet with aluminum foil (easy cleanup) and added the bacon. Bake it according to the directions on the package.

Once the bacon is done baking I put it on a plate with paper towel to drain the grease and set it aside.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the fettuccine noodles and cook according to the directions on the box, then drain.

I used a food scale to make sure it was exactly 4 ounces of noodles.

While the noodles were cooking I also steamed the broccoli.

To cut back on cooking time I bought a rotisserie chicken. I removed the skin and used the chicken breasts. Shred the chicken and set aside.

Using the same pan that the noodles were cooked in you want to melt the butter, then cook the minced garlic for 30 seconds. Add the flour and whisk together.

Slowly add the milk while whisking the whole time. Turn the heat to medium high until it starts to simmer.

Let the sauce simmer for 1 minute or until it starts to thicken. Turn off the heat and add in the fettuccine noodles.

Mix together the noodles and sauce then add in the chicken, bacon and broccoli.

Instead of broccoli you could also use fresh spinach. Just stir it in the sauce before the noodles and cook until the spinach wilts.
