I took the recommendation about the lemonpepper and didn't add it. It was delicious! The chicken was tender and the alfredo sauce had a good spicy flavor. Perfect recipe for just me and my husband.

I didn't like the lemon pepper seasoning in this. It kinda ruined the dish for me. I'd recommend omitting that because it tasted out of place.
