We love Citrus in our family and we had several lemons to use up, so we decided to make a nice Lemon Chicken over Linguini Noodles.
1 box Linguini Noodles
1 lemon, juiced (you can use the zest for extra taste and decoration, zest before juicing)
2 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 package of Fettuchini Sauce (we like Knorr brand)
salt and pepper to taste
nutmeg, just a shake or two
Place a large pot of water on the stove to boil, add a generous amount of salt.
In a non stick saucepan, add 1 tsp olive oil, and sautee the chunks of chicken until lightly browned and cooked thru. Remove from pan and set aside.
In the same saucepan as you cooked the chicken, prepare the Fettuchini sauce as directed. I added a bit of white wine and some lemon juice. The sauce will be a bit thin from adding the extra liquid.
Add your Cheese and stir the sauce until it thickens up, taste for seasonings and add as needed, add your nutmeg. Add your chicken back in, along with any juices rendered.
When the sauce is ready, pour your cooked and drained pasta in, saving back a bit of pasta water to thin the sauce with if needed.
Mix the past sauce and the pasta well and serve.
Add a bit of additional Parmesan on top and lemon zest if desired
