Alfredo sauce usually revolves around pasta, but if you want to get a low carb version, we definitely recommend this chicken zucchini alfredo. Plus, adding zucchini makes this dish a lot lighter than it is. It’s creamy, savory, and ready in around 45 minutes, so you won’t spend the entire day in the kitchen in order to make it.
