Creamy Lemon and Chicken Alfredo

Lemon and alfredo sauce in one dish...does it get much better than this.  I found this recipe a while ago in a magazine and I have been dying to try it.  I actually made this the day before Thanksgiving (crazy right) I thought it would take FOREVER.  The sauce was so simple and is honestly the best tasting sauce I have made.  I will be making this over and over again!

Prep Time: 2 hours (time to marinate the chicken)
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Serving Size: 4-6 people
Cost: 10 dollars. (Cheaper if you can get chicken on sale)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 box of your choice of pasta (I used bow tie noodles)
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice (it may seem like a lot of lemon, but it's perfect)
  • 4 oz. of cream cheese
  • Parsley for topping
Directions

  1. Place your chicken in a large bowl, and add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, and add your lemon pepper seasoning.  Let marinate for AT LEAST two hours.
  2. Once your chicken is done marinating, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and bake chicken for 15-20 minutes.
  3. While chicken is baking boil your water, and add pasta once boiling.
  4. While pasta is cooking add melt your butter, once melted add your whipping cream, cheese, onion powder, garlic, remaining lemon juice and cream cheese.
  5. Let mixture simmer for about 5-8 ,minutes (until thickened)
  6. Cut you chicken in bite size piece, and add to drained pasta.
  7. Pour your sauce over the chicken and pasta, top with parsley.
  8. Enjoy!
