Ingredients

  • 2 medium chicken breasts, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 1/4 cup white flour
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt divided
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 5 tablespoons salted butter
  • 4 cups uncooked Barilla rotini
  • 1 bunch asparagus, bottoms trimmed, 2-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoons capers
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • Grated Parmesan for garnish

Instructions

  • Slice chicken breasts in half widthwise, achieving two thin slices per breast.
  • In a shallow dish, combine flour, lemon zest, 1 tsp salt and pepper. Coat each piece of chicken in flour mixture.
  • In a large sauté pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Reduce heat if needed, so butter does not burn.
  • Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to boil, and cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Add asparagus, stock, capers and remaining ½ tsp salt to sauté pan, and cover with a lid. Simmer on low 5 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken, and slice into ½-inch strips on the diagonal. Return to sauté pan, and stir in lemon juice and parsley.
  • Drain pasta. Top pasta with chicken, asparagus, lemon butter sauce and Parmesan.

Notes

TIP: Snap off bottom section of asparagus stalks
to easily remove tough ends.
