Lemon Herb Chicken Pasta

Dinner time can be pretty tricky at our house sometimes. We have a lot of opinionated eaters. This meal is one that my family really enjoyed. The lemon provides such a fresh flavor and the sauce isn’t heavy tasting. It is light in consistency and compliments the heaviness of the pasta perfectly. My kids love the chicken! The herbs bring in additional delicious flavors and the whole meal works together wonderfully.

This is definitely a recipe I will be making again!


The Lemon Sauce is so refreshing and light in consistency and compliments the pasta and chicken wonderfully.
