Ingredients
  • CHICKEN INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 Chicken Breasts, sliced in half
  • olive oil
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • CREAMY LEMON SAUCE INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup full-fat canned coconut cream (found in the Asian isle)
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • PASTA INGREDIENTS:
  • half of a 12 oz box of Barilla gluten-free spaghetti
  • large stock pot of water
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of dried minced garlic
  • OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:
  • cherry tomatoes, or chopped fresh parsley
Instructions
  1. In a large stock pot filled with water over medium high heat, add the salt and dried minced garlic. Bring to a boil. Once it's boiling, add your barilla pasta and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. While your pasta is boiling, add a generous amount of olive oil to a pan over medium heat. While it's heating, thinly slice your chicken breasts and season generously with lemon pepper seasoning. I did about ¼-1/2 a teaspoon on each piece. Add the seasoned chicken to the olive oil and cook until done.
  3. Set the chicken aside and add to the pan all of the sauce ingredients. Use a flat whisk to thoroughly stir and combine. Once the sauce is heated through, add in your pasta and stir to coat. Top with your cooked chicken breasts. Garnish as desired and serve.
  4. Leftovers keep well for a day in an air-tight container.
