• 2 teaspoons garlic powder
• 2 cups milk: 19 cents
• 6 ounces grated Parmesan cheese: $1.12 save with Kraft cheese coupons
• 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

1. Brush chicken breasts with 1 teaspoon olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Add remaining olive oil to a skillet and heat to medium-high heat.

2. Cook chicken breasts until edges are opaque, about 10 minutes, then flip over, cover, lower the heat, and cook for another 10 minutes.

3. Cook fettuccini according to directions on the package.

4. For the alfredo sauce, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add cream cheese and garlic powder, stir with a whisk until smooth.

5. Add a little bit of milk at a time, constantly whisking to smooth out any lumps. Stir in Parmesan cheese and pepper.

6. Remove sauce from heat when it reaches your desired consistency — it will thicken rapidly. Add more milk to thin sauce if necessary.
