Goat Cheese Chicken Alfredo

Well, it's Thursday... and what better way to spend Thursday than watching (and possibly laughing at) Justin and I cooking together. Okay, so we vlogged a 'cooking' show, because my favourite Texan requested it. When I told Justin that a few people wanted us to vlog again, and that Lindsay wanted us to do a cooking show, he got really excited. I asked him what he (not we) wanted to cook (I just watched him to his thing... and drank wine... and ate snacks); he wanted to cook something amazing that he created/made for me when we first started dating: Goat Cheese Chicken Alfredo.


Spoiler alert, it's phenomenal. If there weren't so many calories in this (or the 42 pieces of garlic bread that I consumed with this), I would honestly eat this every single day. Mmmmmm.

Here's our vlog of how this delicious looking meal was created.

Justin so graciously put together the recipe to share with everyone, so here is how you can make this absolutely delicious meal.

What you need (to make this)

2 chicken breasts
Linguini noodles (enough for 2 people)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp dry white wine (have a whole bottle on hand so you can drink the rest)
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tspn fresh parsley

salt and pepper (to taste - so however much you want)
5 ounces goat cheese

Combine olive oil, wine and chicken broth in saucepan. 
Simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. 
Add parsley, goat cheese, salt and pepper, and garlic seasoning. 
Continue simmering and stirring frequently (until sauce is thickened).

Cook two chicken breasts however you'd like - we pan fried ours. Add flavour to it, whatever flavour you want. Then slice into bite size pieces.

Boil a pot of water... once it's boiling, add noodles and let them cook for 10 minutes (but you should know how to cook pasta by now if you're making this).

Strain pasta, put on plate, add chicken, then pour a lot of sauce on top. The more the better.


*please note, this meal is high in calories... it's only 'special' to us because it's made with goat cheese and oil instead of milk and butter - so this is ideal for people who are lactose intolerant*

What a great idea! I love goat cheese but never know what to make with it other than sprinkling it on a salad or something. This recipe looks amazing! Pinning!

Justin: "extra virgin olive oil... hehehe... virgin."

Faith: "Goodbye carbs." Ok but like for real, IS BUTTER A CARB???


Why do you call it peanut butter and JAM? I've ALWAYS heard it called peanut butter and JELLY. Just another weird Canadian thing I guess.

SHOTS, SHOTS, SHOTS, SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS! Peter if you're watching, I'm sure that was just water.


HEY JUSTIN. Maybe if your recipes didn't take FIVE YEARS to cook Faith wouldn't need so many snacks. She is CLEARLY the victim in this situation.

And Faith isn't grumpy, she's just drunk.

My breakfast peach does NOT look as delicious as that pasta.

Justin is like a four year old when he gets in front of the camera. LOOK AT ME SINGING AND DANCING AND RUBBING MY NIPPLES.

UGH I can't watch the video at work and that is giving me major anxiety but HOLY DELICIOUS I'm drooling just looking at the pictures. Why am I never invited over for dinner. Rude.

Oh, this looks really good but I've never eaten goat cheese.
