Lemon Basil Chicken Pasta
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 large chicken breast, diced into chunks
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • pinch of crushed red peppers, optional
  • ⅓ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 16 ounces pasta noodles
  1. Cook the diced chicken on medium-heat until the chicken is fully cooked. About 2-4 minutes on each side.
  2. Add the minced garlic, oil, and butter in another pan and cook over low-to-medium heat. You do not want to burn the garlic. Stir occasionally to avoid burning the garlic.
  3. Cook your pasta noodles according to the directions on the back of the package. Drain the noodles once they are fully cooked.
  4. Once the garlic is brown, add in lemon juice, the cooked chicken, and the pasta. Add in salt and pepper to taste and the crushed red peppers. Stir in the fresh basil and serve.
