One of my favorite combos EVER is lemon and chicken. Well, pretty much lemon and anything! Lemon goes well with sweet and savory dishes and has a special flavor that lightens up and lifts savory dishes.
The lemon sure does not disappoint in this lemon chicken pasta dish either. It’s creamy, hearty, bright, and satisfying. Plus, making this pasta is so easy because it’s all cooked in one pan for easy clean-up. NO PRE-BOILING. NO DRAINING. Just one dish to clean, no mess, and no headache. How much easier can it get!
To make this delicious pasta you will need
To make this creamy one-pot lemon chicken pasta you will need to saute the chicken along with onions and garlic until golden brown, then add your water or stock.
Bring that to a boil and once it’s almost cooked add your cream, fresh lemon juice, and lemon zest and you’re done!
Top the pasta off with some fresh parmesan cheese and call it a day. I hope you enjoy the ease and flavors of this recipe as much as we did! 🙂
