Jalapeno Lime Chicken Alfredo With Cilantro


Jalapeño-Lime-Chicken-Alfredo-With-Cilantro.jpg
Oh good golly miss molly I have done it again! A fusion of some of my favorite things, jalapenos, limes and alfredo sauce! This dish is also fabulous with shrimp, let me tell you! Delicioso! I suggest when making this keep the kids and husband away from the kitchen with tasting equipment or it just might not make it to the table! This is always gobbled up sadly with no leftovers for the hubby to take to work! Feel free to adjust the spice dependent on how hot your jalapenos are, this time mine where hot so one would do but sometimes I need 3 just to have a little heat.

  8. Hi Serena! I totally love discovering new flavor combinations, and thanks for inspiring me, especially with the lime and cilantro in the Alfredo sauce. Funny that we both posted different Alfredo sauces this week. I am going to add some lime and cilantro to my Alfredo sauce this weekend. I don't know about the jalapenos:). Have a great weekend!!

  14. Way to fuse some of my favorite ingredients! I love a good alfredo, especially the idea of doing a spicy kicked up version with the jalapeno and lime.

  16. i DID try this last night and it was very good! my husband is not a fan of jalapeno so i substituted mushrooms, but the lime and cilantro combination is really great with the alfredo sauce. i actually had the cilantro and lime on hand for a mango salsa (for salmon) so it was a great way to use the rest of the cilantro!

  20. I wish I could make something like this on my own)) It looks simple, but I know there are always a lot of opportunities for doing it wrong. Thanks for your guidance. I hope I will improve my cooking skills by directly following your directions.

  21. These flavors will thrill my hubby, who is a pepper-head, and a lime-lover. I'll be making this in the next day or two. Can't wait!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I'm also having my daughter and her gf and dairy-free friend make your version of black bean brownies. They look absolutely divine!

  22. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do! My black bean brownies aren't gf and due have butter but I have had some comments on other recipes that sub gf flour and reviews had great results. As for the butter in the recipe I think coconut oil would work great and impart a nice flavor. Have a great week!
