Easy Weekend Recipe #5: Lemon Chicken Spaghetti Toss

Friday, December 5, 2008

I found this one on one of my favorite food blogs, Dine and Dish. I add some broccoli to make it even more of a meal. Kristen posted her recipe on Recipe Zaar. If you'd like to try it print it out here.


5 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons olive oil orvegetable oil
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
3 tablespoons lemon juice*
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon seasoning salt**
1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1 7 ounce package thin spaghetti
Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, saute onions& garlic in butter& oil until tender.

Stir in the chicken, lemon juice, parsley, seasoned salt& lemon-pepper.

Saute for 15-20 min or until chicken juices run clear.

Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.

Add to chicken mixture and toss.

*I like lemon. Actually I love lemon. The lemoney-er (more lemony?) the better. I usually have at least 5 TBS and add a little to the pasta water and a little more when adding the cooked spaghetti to the chicken mixture.

**I use garlic salt

  1. I love this recipe, don't you? I love the idea of adding broccoli to it! This is one of my stand by's when I can't think of anything else to make.

  2. I'll try it--it's similar to my spaghetti with oil and garlic, but I'm a huge lemon fan too, so this sounds great.

  3. This is too funny! I just did a recipe on my blog...I'll definitely have to try yours!

  4. That looks delicious. I am making it for dinner tonight...except I don't have spaghetti or chicken or lemon juice. LOL! Guess I will have to go the store.

  5. If you love lemon (and chicken) I'll blog about my lemon chicken rice soup. OHHHHHH. So warm and yummy.

  6. I'm going to have to try this out! Thanks for sharing :)

  7. This sounds so good. I'm gonna have to give it a try and I'm so not the cook
