Holaaaaaa... Today I decided to make my own alfredo sauce, I usually  buy the jar already made, but I wanted to try my own this time. Results: Great! ... 
This sauce has so much flavor, it's easy to prepare. You can do it with shrimp, clams, tofu, or chicken as mine. Here I give you my recipe for this Homemade Pasta Alfredo with Chicken  :)

Linguine with Chicken Alfredo

For this preparation you will need any kind of cooked pasta, I use Linguine, you can use penne pasta, spaghetti or angel hair is up to you.

Ingredients for the sauce: (2-3 servings)
1 Chicken Breast  
2 tbsp Corn Starch 
3 tbsp Cream Cheese (I used Philadelphia)
1 cup of Chicken or Beef Broth
2 cups of Fresh Milk 
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1 pinch of Nutmeg powder 
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preparation Steps: 
Step 1: Start by cutting the chicken breast into pieces, I cut it in cubes. Remember not to cut them so thick. Then marinated them with salt, pepper and olive oil. Set aside while you do the step 2.

That marine well with salt and pepper
and 2 teaspoons olive oil approx.

Step 2: Now start chopping garlic. Also dissolve the beef or chicken broth in 1 cup hot water if necessary.

Step 3: Now heat a pan over medium temp. and place the chicken pieces. Let them fry until brown color, once ready place them in a separate dish. Watch!

Not necessary to add oil when frying,
remember that is marinate with olive oil

Step 4: Using the same pan add a 2 tablespoons olive oil, chopped garlic, and cornstarch and mix well. (Don't worry if starts forming a dough) then add the beef/chicken broth, let them blend, then add cream cheese, (1 cup) milk. Keep stirring until the mix start boiling then add (1 cup) milk  and cooked chicken. Mix well for a couple of minutes more and serve.
