Healthy Chicken and Feta Avocado Pasta

So the weather is changing. You are getting worried about no longer being able to go on your runs outside. You are concerned about all the calories that you are eating and no longer burning off. On top of all that, you are craving super fatty foods. Wait, is that just me? Well this little predicament led me to come up with this recipe.

Feta is one of the most flavorful cheeses with the fewest calories. I love it on pasta, bruschetta, salads, plain, etc... If you have never tried it, you MUST! Combine that with a fatty (but healthy fat) avocado and you have a pasta bursting with flavor. To add to the great flavor, it is actually pretty healthy for you. Compare the calories in this pasta to an alfredo and you see what I am talking about. Basically, you get your "fatty fix" without all the butter, heavy whipping cream, and cream cheese.

Ingredients
2 Tbsp feta cheese
1 avocado
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup cilantro
1/2 tsp salt (maybe a little more to taste)
Dash of lemon juice
Shredded chicken (like from Slow Cooker Whole Chicken)
8-12 ounces pasta, cooked and drained


Directions
1. Place all ingredients except pasta and olive oil into a Cuisinart (or blender). Pulse the mixture for 1 to 2 minutes while streaming in the olive oil until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
2. Combine the sauce with the pasta and top with chicken.

  1. Do you ever do any gluten free recipes? Just wondering bc these all look so good but my husband can not have any wheat/gluten and I'd love to see if you have experimented with any of your recipes to make them wheat free?

  9. FANTASTIC! Made this for my husband and brother and it went down a storm. My hubby who doesn't really like pasta complimented the dish many times and my brother said it was restaurant standard! I can't wait to make it again!!

    By the way you can take a look on my own recipe sharing site EatFormula.com Hope you will like it.

    Thanks again
