Lemon Pepper Chicken - Pinterest Pick #13 BONUS RECIPE TOO

A post where you get TWO recipes at one time?  Yup, it's happening!  I was reviewing all my recipes to make that I had pinned on Pinterest, and I found two that complimented each other to make a great dinner.  So one night, I made them both!  The tangy lemon pepper chicken breaks up the creaminess and richness of the pasta.  This chicken is simple, and great for any dinner or lunch.  You don't have to serve it with pasta.  It would be great on a salad, with rice, or whatever side you want to serve it with. You can find the original pin for the chicken HERE and the original pin for the pasta HERE.

Lemon Pepper Chicken

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbs lemon pepper seasoning (I use Lawry's)
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs grated parmesan

Place all ingredients except parmesan in a ziploc bag or airtight container and mix well.  Marinate chicken for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350.
Place chicken on foil-lined backing sheet and sprinkle with parmesan. Bake for 30-45 minutes.

Four Cheese Garlic Spaghetti

  • 8 oz thin spaghetti
  • 1 cup cooking water
  • mix of chicken and broth in water to cook pasta in 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 cups four cheese Italian cheese blend (shredded)

Cook pasta in mix of chicken broth and water until pasta is al dente.  Reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid.  Drain pasta.
Saute garlic in olive oil and butter for 1 minute.  Add in pasta, pasta water, and heavy cream.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and stir in cheese.  Cook for a couple of minutes so sauce can thicken.
