Chicken and Lemon-Broccoli Alfredo By: Lindsey

This is something a little different then what we normally put on here. I made it tonight for the first time it was really good and easy.

4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
Salt and ground black pepper
8 oz. mushrooms, halved
1 Tbl. spoon olive or cooking oil
1 lemon
3 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 10 oz. container refrigerated light alfredo pasta sauce
Cracked black pepper (I didn't have this so I left it out)

1. Season chicken with salt and ground black pepper. I large skillet brown chicken and mushrooms for 4 minutes in hot oil, turning chicken halfway through.

2. Meanwhile, shred 2 teaspoons of lemon peel; set aside. Slice lemon. Add broccoli florets and lemon slices to skillet. Cover, cook about 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

3. Place chicken and vegetables on plate. Add Alfredo sauce to skillet, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan; heat through. Serve sauce on chicken. Sprinkle with lemon peel and cracked black pepper. Makes 4 servings
