O.M.G. DIVINE!!!!! This was SOOO good. It compares just to the garlic chicken pesto recipe everyone loves! This tastes amazing. Will be a go to meal. And so simple to make. It takes maybe 30 minutes. Love it! That’s all I have to say! You have to try it for yourself!
Lemon Pesto Chicken
1 pound of boneless chicken
1/2 bottle of Lawrys Lemon Pepper 30 minute marinade
2 big spoonfuls of pesto (We use Classico basil Italian pesto, it can be found at Target and Walmart)
I cut my chicken into thin strips. I don’t like thick pieces of meat so my chicken slices are pretty thin.
Combine all ingredients into a bowl and refrigerate. Marinate minimum 30 minutes. I marinates mine for about 6 hours.
On stove top, pour in chicken including Marinade. Cook until done. Set aside in separate dish.
12 ounces of spaghetti. I used whole wheat angel hair
2 tablespoons of butter
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of half and half
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
4 ounces of pesto
After chicken is finished. Using same pan, Melt butter. Add garlic and sauté,
Remove pot from heat. Pour milk into pot. Return to heat. add lemon juice. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add pesto. Sauté 5 minutes.
In a serving bowl, spoon in spaghetti. When pasta sauce is done, pour it over the pasta. Stir. Pour chicken on top. Serve.
