Chicken Fettuccini with Peanut Sauce ~ This scrumptious Low-Fat Chicken Pasta dish is smothered in just enough Peanut Sauce to make it not only healthy, but delicious as well !

I shared this Chicken Fettuccini with Peanut Sauce over at Love Bakes Good Cakes at the beginning of last month as part of a Healthier Eating Series. But wanted to share the recipe here on the blog as well, in case you missed it.

This Chicken Fettuccini with Peanut Sauce does not really require any side dishes but I like to always add at least a small crunchy salad.

Oils and Salt are of course the biggest culprits and should be avoided or substituted whenever possible when trying to cook healthier.

Why use Avocado Oil ?

Avocado Oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which is good for you and this specific brand I am using today, is also free of any cholesterol.

Both of these should be labelled on any good quality oil and it would only take you a second or two to scan the label and see which Oils are the goodies.

And the ones that are really bad news for eating healthier.

With this Chicken Fettuccini with Peanut Sauce dish, I try to cut down any frying as much as I can.

And also use no extra Salt. Do not worry, the Sauce combination makes up more than enough for the Pasta not to taste dull.

You will note that the Bell Pepper also does not get cooked in any way. Which is great, no frying and no loss of necessary nutrients.

Instead, the Bell Pepper gets softened by the boiled water from the Pasta. Which of course adds even a little more nutrients from the Pasta. (which would have gone lost if drained as usual)
