How To Make Chicken Primavera
This chicken primavera is a classic chicken and pasta combo meal that’s loaded with filling spring vegetables of baby carrots, peas, and asparagus.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
Season the chicken breasts generously on both sides with salt and pepper.
Place the chicken breasts in the pan, then cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Cut the chicken crosswise into slices.
Prepare the pasta in salted water according to package instructions. Just 4 minutes before the pasta is done, add the carrots, asparagus, and peas to the boiling water.
Drain the pasta and vegetables, reserving ¼ cup of the cooking liquid.
Return the pasta and vegetables to the pasta pot. Turn the heat on low and add the butter and lemon juice, stirring to coat.
Add the pasta water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the sauce is at the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Arrange the chicken on top of the pasta mixture and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with lemon wedges, and enjoy!
