Lemon Chicken Alfredo Pasta Recipe: Make This Lemon Chicken Recipe & Your Taste Buds Will Thank You

Searching for a fresh approach to serving chicken, I reached out to my colleague Donna for ideas. She suggested I try this 7-Minute Chicken recipe by Chef Amy Fothergill, and I ended up with my own variation on it. Then I went a step further and made my own variation of this 3-Ingredient Parmesan Alfredo Sauce recipe. The result was a delicious dinner with savory flavors that our taste buds are still craving (good thing there's plenty of leftovers)!

You'll need:



  • 2 cups heavy cream 
  • 1 stick butter 
  • 2 cups grated cheese (original recipe called for Parmesan, but I used Gruyere and it was delicious) 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Here's how to make it:

To a large sauté pan, add the olive oil, salt, Italian seasoning, garlic, bouillon cubes and the juice of two lemons. Bring to a simmer, then add the chicken. Sauté for a few minutes. Add the broccoli and the juice of two more lemons. Stir together, then allow to simmer for about 10 more minutes.

For the sauce, put the heavy cream and butter into a skillet or large saucepan. Cook over medium heat until butter melts and is thoroughly incorporated into the cream. Add 2 cups of the grated cheese and stir until melted.

When everything is ready, put the pasta in a bowl. Top with a layer of the chicken and broccoli mixture. Then top that with a layer of the sauce. Add a dash of sea salt and/or sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Thank you, Donna John . I love using recipes as a starting point, then I usually add my own touches based on what I have in my fridge, LOL! I hope you enjoy this one (I made a lot so there would be leftovers, ha!). I think Dieter Schmitz liked it. :-)
