This Lemon Chicken Pasta is simple, delicious and one of the best comfort foods ever. A family favorite for years and requested for birthday dinners many times!
If I were to make the same meal, one night a week, every single week, my boys would hands down vote for this Lemon Chicken Pasta. They ask for it All. The. Time.
When I had my last baby 12 years ago, my friend brought us a chicken pasta dinner that we all went crazy over. It was sooo delicious. So I asked her for the recipe and it went something like this . . . “a little of this and a little of that, etc . . . .ugh!” She gives you recipes like my mom does! So I made up my own version and it was as good as hers!
I’ve been asked for the recipe countless times, and I hate to admit it, but I’ve been just like my friend and my mom and totally had to guesstimate because I’ve never really measured anything. Hence, the reason this recipe has never been posted. So to all my friends and family that have asked for this recipe, I’m happy to report that I actually measured out things this last time so I can give you a real recipe instead of a make believe one.Now it’s definitely not on the healthier side of things, which of course is why it’s so, so good. It’s also simple, delicious, and yeah, it’s pretty much the bomb.
We had a missionary serving in our stake for a full year and the first time I fixed dinner for him and his companion, this pasta is what I made. Every other time after that when I fed the missionaries, Elder Foster always requested this pasta. I made this for my son’s group of friends when they had dinner at our house the night of prom a couple years ago. It was a hit with every single teenager that night.
You just gotta try it.
