Though I already have a similar recipe for Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo, this one is a bit different. It is egg-free, and thickened with a tiny bit of starch. I also cut the chicken in the traditional bite size pieces, versus serving a chicken fillet on top of the creamy pasta. Though this dish is traditionally served with fettucini noodles (see my Gluten Free Egg Noodles recipe), you may use your favorite gluten free pasta. I like to use penne pasta as an alternative. This is an easy recipe, and it tastes so good! I’d gladly pay to eat this at a restaurant. Enjoy!
