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.


  • 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


  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.
