The Chicken Taco Alfredo Recipe You Can Enjoy Completely Guilt-Free

Finally, a pasta dish you can enjoy completely guilt-free. This Chicken Taco Alfredo feel like an absolute treat yet lightened up, so go ahead and enjoy yourself!

Whenever I create a recipe, I ask myself a few questions:

Are these ingredients I likely already have on hand? check.
Is this recipe simple to prepare? check.
Will my entire family eat it? check.
Is this a meal I would enjoy eating 2x in a week? check.

Not only does it check all the boxes that I love my LG recipes to have, but also it’s a meal that makes you feel like you’re indulging. BUT, you can do so completely guilt-free!
