DIRECTIONS

  • Rub chicken breasts with lemon oil, if using.
  • Sprinkle both sides with lemon zest, pepper, and granulated garlic, and set aside for 15-minutes for flavor to develop.
  • Start to heat salted water to cook the pasta, but don’t cook it until you start to make the sauce.
  • Spray a large, nonstick skillet with nonstick spray, add olive oil, and place over medium heat.
  • When hot, add chicken, and cook until done, but still springy to the touch, and lightly browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
  • Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm.
  • If using fresh mushrooms, add to pan, increase heat to high, and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove mushrooms from pan using a slotted spatula, leaving juice behind.
  • If not using fresh mushrooms, drain all excess oil from pan, leaving browned bits in pan.
  • Reduce heat to medium if necessary.
  • Add pasta to boiling water.
  • Add lemon juice to skillet, and deglaze the pan, scraping up all browned bits from cooking chicken.
  • Add mustard and Alfredo sauce, and stir until combined.
  • Simmer until heated through.
  • Stir in chicken and mushrooms, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low until pasta is done.
  • Serve sauce over pasta and chicken.
  • Sprinkle with parsley if desired.
  • Serves 4.
  • Note!!!! Ingredient should be LEMON OIL, not extract. Recipezaar recipe software changed it to extract and will not let me make the correction. Sorry about that!
