This Lemon Chicken Pasta is one of those recipes that you can keep on hand for anytime! It’s good in spring, summer, fall or winter and it’s beyond easy (music to my ears). I’ve whipped this up, no joke 3 times in the last 2 weeks and eat it on repeat for lunch and dinner without a second thought. All the ingredients you need for this are probably in your refrigerator as we speak, except perhaps the chives! But those could be substituted for any herb – basil, parsley, green onions, mint… you name it!

  • 1 bunch chives, snipped
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta according to the package directions, drain and set aside.
