Ingredients

  • 1 jar (15 oz.) Classico® Light Creamy Alfredo Pasta Sauce
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 4 oz. each
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. Pound each chicken breast with a mallet to about 1/4-inch even thickness. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Lightly dredge in flour, shaking off the excess.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Remove from skillet and keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet over medium heat, stir in pasta sauce and juice, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Stir in nutmeg, and serve warm with chicken breasts. Garnish with sliced fresh basil and lemon zest if desired.
