Crispy, tender and juicy parmesan crusted chicken over the most incredible creamy lemon garlic pasta! This is a must make meal!
· 2 Chicken Breasts, sliced in half
· 6 Tablespoons butter, divided
· ½ cup Italian Bread Crumbs
· ½ cup grated parmesan
· ¼ cup flour
Creamy Lemon Garlic Pasta
· 8 ounce pasta of choice, I used spaghetti
· ½ cup heavy whipping cream (to lighten things up, try fat free half & half!)
· ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
· Juice of one lemon
· 1 teaspoon garlic powder
· ½ teaspoon salt
· ¼ teaspoon pepper
1. In a large skillet over medium heat melt 2 Tablespoons butter. To make the chicken: Melt remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and flour. Dip the chicken in the butter and then coat in the bread crumb mixture and place in skillet.
2. Cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes until the outside is crispy and the chicken is cooked throughout. (It shouldn't take too long because the chicken should be thin).
3. Meanwhile cook the pasta according to package directions and drain. In a medium sized skillet add the heavy whipping cream, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Whisk together and cook over medium high heat until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and add the pasta to coat in the sauce.
4. Serve the chicken with the pasta and garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
