This deliciously different lemon pasta recipe incorporates a classic combination of flavors: lemon, chicken, and garlic. It’s a nice change of pace from the usual pasta fare! The lemon helps the chicken absorb the flavor so that it’s juicy and flavorful.

How To Make Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

  • 3 chicken breast (halves, skinless, boneless )
  • 1 lemon (quartered)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder (divided)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper (divided)
  • 3½ cups chicken broth
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 8 oz rotelle pasta
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp lemon zest (grated)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Place chicken in a lightly greased baking dish. Squeeze lemon over both sides of the chicken breasts and season both sides using 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. 

  3. Bake for 40 minutes, or until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink inside. 

  4. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, season the chicken broth with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  5. Bring to a boil and add lemon juice and pasta. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until all liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes.

  6. Cut cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces and stir into cooked pasta, along with the cream and lemon zest. 

  7. Cook, stirring, over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Stir thoroughly before serving.
