Lemon Garlic Chicken Pasta


I have always had a black thumb. I killed everything that entered my house that had leaves. My house was the place that plants came to die. I mean, I killed a cactus. Yup, I am the one with the dried out soil, leaves and vegetation all over the floor, and the weeping of all that is green surrounding my house.

That was until a few weeks ago when I moved into our new house! I decided to just go for it and start a container garden. I was going to give myself one shot, one chance at getting this right. If everything were to die, that would be my sign that it wasn't not meant to be. 

To my surprise, everything is flourishing! I hate to complain, but it's flourishing a little too much! I had to use a whole cup of parsley today just because it was getting out of control! I have to re-pot my herbs and veggies because they're doing so well! Sure it's a good problem to have, just not one I was ever prepared for. 


That brings me to my recipe today. I had recently gone to the local farm and stocked up on a few weeks of meat. Tonight I knew I wanted to have some chicken and I was craving pasta, but I was sick of the same old recipes. I wanted something new, something fresh. That's when I took one look at my out of control parsley and the few lemons I had in the fridge, and it came to me. Call it it eureka moment.

I made the most delicious Lemon garlic chicken pasta tonight! It was so easy and quick. My son has been going through some terrible two's they call it but I say it's just "growing pains", but anywhoo I made this dish with my son literally around my ankles. No seriously, he was sitting on the floor holding on to my leg. Yup, it's that easy and quick you can do it with a toddler strapped to your leg!

Lemon Garlic Chicken Pasta

Ingredients:
3-4 Chicken breast cut into 1" cubes
8oz linguine (half a 1lbs box)
1 cup loose leaf parsley (fresh and not chopped)
1 cup cherry/grape tomatoes (quartered)
1 clove garlic (grated)
3 tbs olive oil
1 Lemon (juiced)
salt/pepper to taste
grated parmesan cheese (optional)

How To Make:

I'm going to break this up into two parts - the stove top parts then the sauce/dressing.

Stove Top:

1. Start water for pasta

2. Put 1tbs of olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium heat. 

3. Once heated add all of the chicken and cook until browned on all sides.

4. Add the tomatoes and parsley and set aside on low heat - stirring occasionally. 




Sauce/Dressing

1. Mix 2 tbs of olive oil and the juice of one lemon into a dish

2. Grate one clove of garlic

3. Add salt and pepper to taste

4. Whisk and you're done!

I know what you're thinking: this doesn't look like a lot of sauce for all that chicken and pasta!  Trust me, it is!

Put It All Together!

1. Drain pasta and add it to the chicken pan

2. Add the lemon-garlic sauce

3. Mix all together and enjoy!

Optional: Add grated parmesan and toss

  1. This looks delicious! I have a black thumb as well. :-( However, at one time I was able to grow herbs. They were growing as if they were weeds!! I had to use as much as I could, and should have started sending some of it to work with my husband, but it's all hindsight now. They all finally died, but it did take forever.

  7. This was great. The chicken itself was a little bland so I think next time I might through in a little garlic and onion while I am browning it.

  19. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
