YUMMY! This was a super hit for us, and a big win for me. I’ve always wanted to try and start making more sauces homemade at home. This was a pretty easy sauce to make. One surprise ingredient for me was cream cheese!

Homemade Chicken Alfredo Sauce

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups milk

  1. Melt butter over medium heat.
  2. Add cream cheese and garlic powder, stirring with wire whisk until smooth.
