I agree with those who question the lemons, but I'd probaby try it if it was' for the use of bottled Alfredo sauce. I'd never make it. I don't use such bottled sauces beause they contain too many preservatives and other additives. Tomato-based sauces are OK, but now these.

Super quick, easy dinner and it was delicious. We served over Quinoa w/brown rice. YUM!

I don't know-the concept sounds delicious but I'd have to tweak it. I wouldn't include whole lemons-pith from lemon peels and whole lemons should be removed as they are bitter. Never bought jarred or store-bought Alfredo Sauce which is actually very easy to make. And-I'd serve this w/pasta.

This dish was horrible...the chicken and veggies tasted very bitter...I guess from using the lemon slices...and bottled Alfredo sauce was not a good idea.! Two thumbs down!

What a rip... I want to make my own light alfredo sauce, not some sodium infested packaged sauce!
