Chicken Mushroom Alfredo

I am not really a huge fan of Alfredo sauce but I know many others who love it. I happened to see a jarred variety at Trader Joe's and thought, why not? Decided to make a sauté of chicken thigh chunks and mushrooms and then add zucchini spirals to keep the carb count low. It turned out yummy.

1 pkg of boneless chicken thighs, cut into chunks
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 pkg of sliced mushrooms
1 jar Trader Joe's Alfredo Sauce
2 zucchini-cut into ribbons or spiralized (if you have one of those handy gadgets like I do).
Parmesan cheese, grated

In large skillet with lid, sauté the onion and mushrooms in a bit of olive oil. Add the chicken thighs and stir well letting that whole mixture brown a bit. Lightly salt and pepper. Add the Alfredo sauce, bring to a boil; then cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the zucchini and mix well. Put lid back on and let that mixture cook for maybe 5-10 minutes? Serve with grated Parmesan.
