Chicken and Creamy Lemon Broccoli

Chicken and Creamy Lemon Broccoli


Chicken gets an elegant makeover with alfredo, mushrooms and the slight tangy hint of lemon. It's a beautiful meal to make when you want something special but you don't have a lot of time.

Ingredients:

4 small skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
Salt and ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, halved
1 lemon
3 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 (10 ounce) container refrigerated light Alfredo sauce


Directions:


1. Sprinkle chicken lightly with salt and pepper.

2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and mushrooms to skillet; cook for 4 minutes, turning chicken once.

3. Meanwhile, shred 2 teaspoons lemon peel; set aside. Slice lemon. Add lemon slices and broccoli to skillet; cook, covered, about 8 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F).

4. Place chicken and vegetables on plates. Add Alfredo sauce to skillet; heat through. Serve with chicken. Sprinkle with lemon peel and pepper.
