Lemon chicken pasta is a hearty and satisfying dinner the entire family will love. Crispy, fried to perfection chicken breast is paired with rich and creamy pasta with lemon Alfredo sauce. This meal is so luxurious and indulgent, it is impossible to stop eating it once you take a bite.
Creamy lemon Alfredo sauce is heavenly. Rich, velvety smooth and luscious it also has an amazing citrus undertone form the lemon that brightens it up, cutting through the richness of cream and cheese.
The key to the silkiest Alfredo sauce without the lumps is to make sure to remove it from heat once the freshly grated parmesan cheese is added. If you continue boiling after adding parmesan, the sauce can curdle and become gritty.
Lemon chicken is crunchy and delicious made by dipping the cut chicken cutlets in the mixture of egg and milk and then dredging them in flavored Panko breadcrumbs. The breadcrumbs are light and airy, helping the chicken to achieve that ultimate golden brown, crispy crust. Beautiful fried cutlets are then drizzled with freshly squeezed lemon juice.
