Recipe by: Frankie


12 ounces penne pasta
12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup freshly chopped parsley
zest and juice from 1 medium lemon


1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain the pasta reserving 1/4-cup of the pasta water. Set the pasta and reserved pasta water aside.

2. In a large bowl mix together the olive oil, garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp pepper. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and place in the bowl. Stir until the chicken pieces are coated in the oil and seasonings.

3. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink and is cooked through, about 5 minutes.

4. Take the pan off the heat. Add the cooked pasta, Parmesan, parsley, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the pan and toss to combine with the chicken. Stir in the reserved pasta water. Taste and season with salt & pepper if needed.
