This dish was inspired by a menu item at a restaurant we’ve never eaten at. We were checking out the menu at a new restaurant in town and the only thing I saw that caught my eye was a Lemon Alfredo Pasta with Chicken and Prosciutto. We eventually decided against going to try the restaurant (it was expensive and that was the only thing I saw that I could eat), but I was still thinking about that pasta dish.
I decided to make my vision of the Lemon Alfredo with Chicken and Prosciutto at home. I made this on a weeknight, so it is quick and easy. I used refrigerated light Alfredo sauce and some rotisserie chicken. If you want to get all fancy, you can make your own Alfredo sauce and cook the chicken yourself. The dish turned out really good. I imagine that it was better than the original. It was actually pretty light even though it used Alfredo sauce. I think the lemon juice lightened it up. I also loved the crispy prosciutto sprinkled over the top of the pasta.
