Homemade Chicken Alfredo

Easy and quick recipe from The Pioneer Woman.
This recipe has a great alfredo-ish sauce if you don't have any and are lacking desire to make a run to the store. Also, the leftovers were amazing! All that garlic, Mmmm.....

2-ish TBSP butter
4 thawed boneless chicken breasts
(Could use beef instead of chicken)
1 box bowtie pasta
1/2-1 cup chicken broth
1- 1 1/2 cups milk
Approx. 2 cups shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese
A spot of flour (for use as a thickener)
minced garlic (lots of it!)
chopped onion
spices (parsley, salt, etc.)

Cook noodles and set aside.
Melt butter in tall frying pan.
Cut chicken into strips, put in the buttered pan, and cook completely through using garlic, spices, and onion for added flavor.
Set chicken aside.
In same pan, add more garlic and a tad more butter.
Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
Add the milk to the broth and again bring to a boil.
Add flour and thicken for 1-2 minutes.
Turn off heat and add cheese and more garlic to the mixture.
Top with the chicken and noodles.
Toss everything together and serve.
