Parmesan Chicken Alfredo

According to Jenna, this is the best pasta dish she's ever tasted! This takes about an hour and ten minutes to make, but it's a super easy dish, and you could have it for dinner, or you could make it for lunch, like we did! :) We cut our chicken breast in half and cooked it, so it made more chicken.

Parmesan Encrusted Chicken:
Your preferred amount of chicken breasts (For two servings, we recommend 1 chicken breast)
1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
2 pinches of pepper
2 pinches of herbed salt or plain salt
1 or more large eggs, depending on your amount of chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit.
Crack the egg(s) into a separate dish.
Put the grated Parmesan, salt, and pepper in a separate dish and toss, coating the cheese.
Dip the chicken in the egg, then dip it in the cheese mixture.
Place the chicken in a glass baking dish and place in the preheated oven.
Cook for 30 minutes on both sides.


1 box of quinoa fettuccine, or spaghetti.
1 package of Alfredo sauce mix (we used Simply Organic)
(Directions on packet)
Cook the pasta as directed, same goes for the Alfredo mix
Drain pasta, (it may stick together, put a little butter in there and it helps)

Cut up chicken into bite size pieces,
Put the pasta on plates,
Place the chicken on the pasta,
Pour a little sauce on top,
Garnish with a little extra Parmesan.
For a little healthy side, you could have salad with balsamic vinaigrette! French bread would be very good too. Dig in!
Enjoy the spice of life.

1/2 Cup honey
1 1/2 Tbsp palm shortening or ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 Cup coconut milk
1/2 Tsp sea salt

1/3 Cup plus 1Tbsp of coconut flour
1/4 Cup of almond flour
1/4 Cup unsweetened applesauce
2 Tbsp coconut oil, softened
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 Tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 Tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 Tsp baking soda
1/4 Tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt

3oz unsweetened chocolate
1 Tbsp coconut milk
3 Tbsp honey

Coconut Cream
3 Tbsp coconut butter
6 Tbsp coconut milk
2 Tbsp honey

1/2 Cup chopped walnuts
1/4 Cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/4 Cup dairy free chocolate chips

1. Carmel Sauce: Bring honey to a low boil to darken about 5-7 minutes. Then remove from heat. Whisk in the palm shortening, coconut milk and salt. Return to heat and cook for 15 minutes. Let the mixture cool to room temp then store in fridge for up to 2 weeks if any are left over.

2. Make crust by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Place the crust ingredients in a bowl and mix until a dough forms. Press the dough into an 8x8 inch pan. Bake 10 min remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 15 min.

3. Make the ganache by melting the chocolate slowly over a double boiler or bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Stir in the milk and honey. Spread the mixture over the crust.

4. Drizzle cooled caramel sauce over the chocolate layer.

5. Sprinkle chopped walnuts over the drizzled caramel layer.

6. Make the coconut cream by placing the ingredients in a small bowl, whisk then drizzle over the walnuts.

7. Sprinkle shredded coconut over the cream layer.

8. Finish with a layer of chocolate chips.

9. Place the bars in the oven and bake  for 20 min Cool on a wire rack for 15 min then refrigerate for 1 hour to set. Cut into 12 bars. We chose to just freeze and skipped cooking based on these awesome ingredients need no baking.

Really Sorry!

Hey everyone! You've probably noticed that Jenna has been posting more than I have, and I apologize. The schedule was supposed to be that I post on Mondays, and Jenna does Fridays. I really haven't made anything that is blog worthy lately, that's part of the reason I haven't posted. Also, I've been super busy lately. I promise I will post something very soon!!

Enjoy the spice of life!
