Quick Keto Chicken Alfredo

The key to making this recipe quick is using precooked chicken. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover chicken. If no leftover chicken is available then use prepacked or canned chicken. If canned or prepackaged chicken is being used make sure you check the labels to be sure all you are getting is chicken.

Making This Sauce

Making a nice creamy sauce is what can make or break this recipe. No one wants a thin tasteless sauce.

The two important aspects to pay attention to in this recipe is melting the butter and whisking. Make sure the butter is melted completely before any other ingredients are added. This creates a nice creamy base.

Also once all the ingredients are added keep whisking constantly. This helps create air in the sauce which results in a light creamy sauce.
