Recipe Ingredients for Lemon cream pasta with chicken

1 chicken breast
2 tsp garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
29 oz chicken broth
1/4 cup lemon juice
8 oz rotini pasta
1 cup heavy cream

Recipe Directions for Lemon cream pasta with chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place chicken in a lightly greased baking dish. Squeeze lemon over both sides of the chicken breasts and season both sides using 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Bake for 40 minutes, or until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink inside.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, season the chicken broth with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  3. Bring to a boil and add lemon juice and pasta. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until all liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes.

  4. Cut cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces and stir into cooked pasta, along with the cream and lemon zest. Cook, stirring, over low heat for 5 minutes.

  5. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Stir thoroughly before serving.
