Ingredients for Lemon Chicken Pasta
Here’s all you’ll need: pasta, lemon, butter, chicken, cream, flour, grated parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, pepper, and garlic salt.
Start by cooking the pasta according to the package directions. Then drain and set aside. I love angel hair pasta with this sauce, but it would be great with pretty much any kind of pasta! Penne, rotini, fettuccine, shells, you name it!
Place the chicken between two layers of wax paper and pound to even thickness. You’re not trying to get them too thin, just so that they’re even and flat. Then generously season the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic salt.
Generously coat each side of the chicken with flour.Like so.Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat.When the butter is hot and starts to turn brown, add the chicken.
Cook on each side, flipping once, until golden brown and chicken is cooked through, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
Lemon Sauce for Chicken
Next you’ll need the zest and juice of one lemon.One lemon is about 2 tablespoons of juice. If you want to skip the zest and just used bottled lemon juice, that’s totally fine too.
