Gnocchi Alfredo with Chicken

I’m watching the Golden Globes and started thinking that we needed a fancy dinner to go along with the fanciness that is the GGs. I threw together a rich, no-so-diet-friendly, fatty delicious pasta dish.

Gnocchi Alfredo (adapted from yummly.com)
Serves 4

package pre-made gnocchi
boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into cubes)
5 tbsps butter (divided)
garlic cloves (minced divided)
1 tbsp italian seasoning
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tbsp salt
3/4 tsp ground pepper
2 cups milk
1 cup lowfat plain yogurt
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
 
 
1. In a medium skillet, melt one tablespoon of butter with italian seasoning. Saute chicken and 2 cloves of garlic until chicken is no longer pink inside.
  
2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add gnocchi. Gnocchi will float to the top. Allow gnocchi to float for two minutes. Drain.
  
3. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet. Stir in flour, salt and pepper; cook 2 minutes. Slowly add milk and yogurt. Whisk and stir until smooth and creamy. Add cheese and stir until smooth. Add chicken and sour cream. Serve over cooked gnocchi. Garnish with black pepper.
 
4. Change into your comfy pants.
