Lemon Chicken with Fettuccine

Sharing is caring!

This Lemon Chicken recipe is a simple yet elegant meal your family will love!I feel like I have been sharing a lot of lemon-inspired recipes with you lately, but I can’t help it. I love the refreshing taste of lemon. From desserts to main dishes, lemon is one of my favorite ingredients to cook and bake with.

I made this Lemon Chicken with Fettuccine for the dinner the other night and my husband went ga-ga over it. Anthony has always been my #1 fan when it comes to my cooking. He simply stated that this Lemon Chicken with Fettuccine was one of his favorite dishes that I have ever made. Now, we have been married for 23 years and I have cooked a lot of meals over that timeframe so that was a very humbling statement from him.

Since he declared this dish his all-time favorite, I just had to share it with you. I am slightly addicted to pasta dishes. Seriously, I think I am a carboholic. You can obviously use any kind of pasta you like for this but I happen to love fettuccine. I love using pasta as a base for a simple meal. Plus, there are less pots to wash too. I only used two for this dish and that is a winner for me!

Lemon Chicken - Feature 1You can certainly swap out the vegetables for any other vegetable you desire. I’m thinking some Jersey Fresh asparagus would taste wonderful with this dish. I am just dying for some Jersey Fresh produce. I can’t wait to try this with some of the Jersey Fresh produce we grow here on our farm. Summer can’t come soon enough!

What I wouldn’t do for a Jersey tomato right now. Anyway, I’m getting off-track.

The bottom line is this Lemon Chicken with Fettuccine is a wonderful dish to serve any time during the week. It’s simple, yet elegant in presentation. It’s pretty hearty too. I love meals that fill you up and this one definitely does just that!
