The #1 Secret to Creamy Alfredo Sauce:

Had you ever made a grainy, curdled or lumpy alfredo sauce? This lemon alfredo sauce is so simple to make but removing it from the heat after adding the cheese is KEY. As with any alfredo sauce, If you continue boiling after adding parmesan, the sauce can curdle and become gritty.

The #2 secret would be whisking constantly while adding the lemon juice so the cream doesn’t separate.

How to Reheat Creamy Pasta:

There are several effective ways to reheat a creamy pasta. Always add a splash of milk (or reserved pasta cooking water), to loosen the cream since it will thicken as it cools. The trick is to heat low and slow and just until warmed through. If you over-heat it, the cream will separate and turn buttery.

  • On the Stove: Place in a sauce pan over medium-low heat and warm the pasta slowly, stirring frequently and adding more milk as needed to thin the sauce. Remove from heat once warmed through.
  • In the Microwave: You can microwave a bowl of pasta for 45-60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds.

What is a Lemon Cream Sauce?

We took our classic creamy alfredo sauce, and replaced the white wine with fresh lemon juice. The lemon juice lightens up the sauce and makes it vibrant. It goes so well with the crispy lemon chicken. The ingredients are simple:

  • Butter – helps keep the sauce from separating
  • Fresh garlic and onion powder – add amazing flavor
  • Lemon Juice – fresh is best
  • Heavy whipping cream – luxuriously smooth
  • Shredded parmesan cheese or freshly grated
  • Salt – always try the finished sauce and season to taste

How to Make Lemon Chicken:

My 9-year old son developed this lemon chicken when he was experimenting with popcorn chicken. It’s a simple 3-step process that results in a crisp and juicy chicken. You can use chicken breast cutlets or chicken tenders.

  1. Dip chicken cutlets into egg wash (egg+milk)
  2. Coat chicken in bread crumb mixture (panko bread crumbs + salt + pepper)
  3. Sautee in a large skillet and squeeze lemon juice over cooked chicken

Ingredients

Chicken Pasta Ingredients:

  • 12 oz fettuccini pasta , or spaghetti
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, (2 medium) cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

Lemon Cream Sauce

  • 4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, from 1 large lemon, divided
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp parsley, optional garnish

Instructions

Cook Pasta:

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, add 1 Tbsp salt and pasta. Cook until al-dente according package instructions or to desired doneness. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water then drain and lightly rinse (rinsing will keep the sauce creamier)

Make Lemon Chicken:

  1. While pasta is cooking, set up 2 bowls. In first bowl, beat together 1 egg and 1 Tbsp milk. In second bowl, combine 1 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper. Dip each chicken cutlet in egg wash, letting excess drip back into the bowl, then dip in bread crumbs, turning to coat.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp oil, or enough to lightly cover the bottom of the pan and sautee breaded chicken in a single layer for 3-4 minutes per side or until cooked through with an internal temperature of 165˚F. Transfer to cutting board to cool slightly, squeeze half of the lemon juice over the top then cut into strips.

Make Lemon Cream Sauce:

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat. Melt 2 Tbsp butter then add 2 minced garlic cloves and 1/4 tsp onion powder. Sautee 1 minute until fragrant.
  2. Add 2 cups heavy cream and 1/2 tsp salt. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and while whisking constantly, gradually pour in 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, whisking to incorporate.
  3. Sprinkle the top with 1/3 cup parmesan cheese and remove from heat, whisking until cheese is melted and incorporated. Season to taste with salt (I added a pinch of salt).

  4. Pour sauce over rinsed, drained pasta and toss to coat noodles. Add reserved pasta cooking water to thin the sauce if desired. Garnish with parsley and serve with strips of chicken over warm bowls filled with pasta.

    Question re: whipping cream.
    Here in Canada there is only one liquid product labelled whipping cream and it has a 35% fat content. Is this what you are referencing in your recipes when you list heavy whipping cream? i.e. Lemon Chicken Pasta

    Reply

    • NatashasKitchen.com
      September 26, 2022

      Hi Val! Yes, that will work perfectly fine. Here in the US, heavy whipping cream is about 36% or great, and whipping cream is between 30-36%. The higher percent, the thicker the sauce. I hope that helps.

      Hi Siri! We usually eat this fresh but it will reheat ok. The breading on the chicken may be a little soggy. I haven’t tried to reheat it in the oven but I think it will be fine.

      Hi Jennifer, you can use the recipe slider to adjust the recipe to 1.5 lbs of chicken to see what adjustments you can make to the meat. In this case, I would use 1.5 eggs and about 1/2 cup more bread crumbs. I would check the seasoning also. I hope you love this recipe!

      Hi Cami, did you ensure to use Heavy Whipping cream? Not just regular whipping cream? Heavy whipping cream has a higher fat content allowing it to thicken more, so that may be the culprit.

      Yup! I used 100% organic heavy whipping cream 🙁 this may be a stupid question but do you dry off your noodles after you rinse them?

      Hi Regine, I haven’t experienced those results, but I am always happy to help troubleshoot. Heavy whipping cream is naturally pretty thick – I wonder if you possibly used a substitution instead of heavy whipping cream? I hope that helps to figure out what may have gone wrong.

    I love every recipe of yours that I try! Can’t wait to try this one, but I have one question. What type of Parmesan do you recommend when making recipes. I have found that when I buy pre-shredded it just doesn’t melt well. Is is better to buy the block and grate or shred fresh? Is the powdery stuff ever ok to use – I don’t even have that in my pantry!

    If you are a college student looking to try an easy and delicious recipe, this is the one! I followed the recipe and my family loved it! If you’re thinking of adding a bit more seasoning to the chicken, I also recommend it- I used half an orange packet of goya and a dash of goya all-purpose seasoning- left this for 30 minutes and proceeded to the letter! Absolutely loved this!!!

    This was dangerously delicious! And kids complemented that it tasted just like at a restaurant! (probably because I used cream and butter as written and didn’t try to make it healthy lol). Thank you Natasha for another quick, easy and delicious recipe!

    Omg! Incredibly good! We ate it so fast I forgot to take a pic. Every once in awhile you should treat yourself to whipping cream. Makes such a difference. Mine was not really thickening so I had to use cornstarch. I think it’s because I screwed up and added the lemon juice before cream.

    I made this recipe last night. It was so delicious! However, it took much longer for my chicken to cook (or at least reach the correct temperature).

    The reheating tip worked out great! No separation at all. It tasted exactly the same as it did last night.

    I absolutely LOVE all of the recipes I’ve made of yours, and the chicken in this one was amazing. However, I could never get the sauce to thicken up. Even after adding more grated Parmesan cheese, it was still very liquidy.
    I poured it into the pasta, but by that time the pasta was cold. Thought the hot sauce would warm it up, but, no.
    The family still enjoyed it, but still…was lacking the creamy consistency. Suggestions?

      Hi Cindy, make sure to use HEAVY whipping cream which has a higher fat content and ends up creamier.

    Hey, Adria here, I love making this recipe and tonight im going to make it… but there is one problem, every time I make this the breading falls off and I do the same thing you did in the videos, I even have Panko breadcrumbs. Also do you have a dog? I had a German Shepherd and he was 2 he all of a sudden passed away a day after Christmas 🙁 just… sorry I even put that there… have a good day.

      Hi Adria, I’m sorry to hear about your doggie. That’s very sad. I hope you are doing ok and staying encouraged. For this recipe, it helps to use a good non-stick and well-oiled skillet to keep the breading on. I hope that helps.

      Hi Mary Jane, putting the sauce over too high of heat is the usual culprit but it could also be that the cheese was shredded into too large of pieces or maybe there was too much cheese.
