Lemon Pepper Chicken Fettuccine

This Lemon Pepper Chicken Fettuccine is insanely delicious!! The combination of the cream sauce, lemon zest and a little pepper makes this pasta incredibly delicious!

We all know that pasta can be high in points. I have found a perfect alternative to pasta with Al Dente Carba-Nada Fettuccine. It tastes just like the real deal. No weird texture, yet it is very low in points. I get it online at Amazon here. They sell them in a pack of 6 (10 oz) bags. It only takes a few minutes to cook and the best part is that you can have 1 1/2 cup cooked for 4 smartpoints.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken tenders
  • 10 ounces Carba Nada lemon pepper Fettuccine
  • 1 Tbsp Land O’ Lakes light butter or any light butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 cup skim milk or unsweetened almound
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tsp lemon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest, grated
  • 1/2 tsp lemon pepper -I use Daks lemonpe

Directions:

  1. In a skillet sprayed with non stick cooking, add boneless skinless tenders. Sprinkle chicken tenders with Daks lemon pepper seasoning and cook on medium until chicken is no longer pink or transparent inside.
  2. Right before taking chicken off the skillet, squeeze 1 tsp fresh lemon juice over cooked chicken. ( set chicken aside)
  3. In a large pot cook Carba Nada fettuccine according to the directions on the bag.
  4. Drain, reserving about 1/2 cup cooking water. (set aside)
  5. In a skillet melt light butter over medium heat.
  6. Add shallot and dash of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until shallot is lightly golden.
  7. Whisk skim milk, egg yolk and lemon zest and a dash of Daks lemon pep seasoning in a bowl.
  8. Reduce heat to low and add cream mixture and Parmesan cheese to skillet.
  9. Cook, whisking until lightly thickened.
  10. Add pasta to skillet and toss, add some of the remaining cooking water to the sauce if needed. (This helps to thin the sauce out.)
  11. Slice or dice cooked chicken tenders and serve on top of Fettuccine.

Servings: Makes 5 (1 1/2 cup) servings

GREEN: 6 smartpoints per serving 

BLUE: 5 smartpoints per serving

PURPLE: 3 smartpoints per serving if using whole grain Fettuccine or 5 smartpoints per serving if using Carba Nada Fettuccinne

I too am a lover of lemon. This was delicious. Love the Carba Nada noodles. I was quite surprised by how good they taste. I recently found your blog and can't wait to make more of your recipes. So far you are 2 for 2. Made the vanilla cornbread muffins (I'll be making those again too). Than you so much for posting such great and easy recipes.

just received my order of Carba Nada noodles and had to try them right away. Had them with some chick peas and diced tomatoes....yummmmmm.I have to say I was a little scared to try them because I am a true macaroni lover and I was not disappointed. Thank you for all the products you are letting us know about.
