Lemon garlic chicken pasta

This is another super easy pasta dish that can be ready is less than 20 minutes, perfect if you’re in a rush but still want to put something tasty and satisfying on the dinner table. The lemon and garlic compliment each other perfectly while the creaminess gives the dish a really luxurious feel.


200g diced chicken breast
200g dried penne pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Zest 1 lemon
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp concentrated chicken stock (i like to use the knorr flavour pots)
150ml single cream
1/2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp dried basil


Add the dried pasta to a pot of boiling salted water and cook according to pack instructions, which should take around 12-15 minutes. While your pasta is cooking, dice the chicken into small bite sized pieces and add to a hot frying pan along with the olive oil. Cook the chicken until it starts to turn a light golden brown then add the garlic, salt, pepper, dried basil and sugar. Now add in the lemon zest and juice and cook for a couple of minutes.

Finally add in the chicken stock and single cream, stir well and simmer gently for 5 minutes until the sauce has started to thicken. Drain the pasta and toss through with the sauce then serve with some grated parmesan and wedges of lemon.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
