Hi All,

As you know we have started Chicken Series, so we are going to add some chicken-related recipes. Today we are going to make Lemon Chicken Pasta. Lemon Chicken Pasta is an easy 30-minute dinner. So let’s start today’s recipe. 


  • 12 ounces (340g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½-inch (1cm) thick slices
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Oregano, to taste
  • About ½ cups flour, for dredging
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 (¼-inch-thick) (0.5cm) Lemon slices
  • 2 artichoke hearts, cut into quarters (canned is fine)
  • ½ cup (120g) oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • ½ teaspoon capers
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup (120ml) dry white wine
  • 3 ounces (¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons or 90g) heavy cream
  • 1 cup [240g] (loosely packed) fresh spinach
  • Pinch fresh rosemary
  • ½ pound (225g) linguine, cooked al dente and drained


  1. Season the chicken slices with salt, pepper, and oregano.

  3. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet or large sauté pan (not non-stick) over high heat until very hot.

  5. When oil begins to smoke, add the chicken pieces.
  6. Cook until pieces are seared on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

  8. Add the lemon slices to the hot pan and cook until caramelized, about 1 minute per side.
  9. Add the artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, capers, and red pepper flakes, and sauté for 2 minutes.
  10. Add the white wine and cook until reduced to a glaze.
  11. Return the chicken to the pan with the cream, and sauté for 2 minutes.
