Not to be confused with Lemon-Chicken, mmmkay?

I need a pasta intervention. I seem to make pasta every other day. Every few days I change it up a bit and make us eat green things, like Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Avocado and Pistachios. OR, I get all ethnic on us and prepare this Meat and Potato Gratin. A-may-zing!

However, one thing does not change; I always manage to throw the entire contents of my fridge in a pan.

Here we have lemon, chicken, tomatoes, mushrooms, fettuccine… blood, sweat, tears… I forgot the pickles.

As far as I see it, if I can have my pasta, protein, AND some veggies in one pot, sans creamy sauce?? It’s a definite winner! I mean, creamy sauce wins, always, but sometimes the jiggle beneath my wings insists on healthier options.

Thus, when I found this pretty little bottle, Arbequina, a mild-bodied extra virgin olive oil, I couldn’t wait to make something healthy-errrr. With a delicious taste of ripe fruits and the sweetness of almonds, as soon as I tasted it, I thought about lemon and chicken. And fettuccine, of course. Yes, almonds remind me of pasta.

Pompeian Diethood Lemon Chicken Fettuccine

Arbequina is part of the Pompeian Varietals Collection, a new premium line of mono-varietal extra virgin olive oils, featuring unique flavor profiles of single olive varieties. Moreover, and totally exciting, Pompeian provides consumers the ability to learn the journey of each bottle! Like, you can literally find out where those olives were grown, where they were harvested, where they were processed, and finally how this bottle arrived to you. Amazing stuff, right? Check it out by jumping over to Pompeian’s website, Tree To Bottle.

The Pompeian Varietals Collection ranges in flavors, from mild to full-bodied, providing the perfect flavor for any dish; from veggies to poultry, and from seafood to juicy red meats. Currently, there are three varieties: Arbequina, to be used with vegetables and fish (AND lemon chicken fettuccine);  Picholine, suggested use is with meats; and finally, Koroneiki, best paired with soups and salads. There really is something for everyone. Which profile fits you best?

Obviously, I chose Arbequina. It just fit me like a glove.

And, while this pasta dish is pretty and comforting, and easy,  it’s also warm, citrusy and incredibly delicious. Essentially, we’re adding boiled pasta into a pan with chicken. And ‘shrooms, and tomatoes.

Also… don’t be alarmed that the “lemon” comes last. Yeah. Together with the rich and nutty Pompeian Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil, it pulls this entire meal together, making you want to scrape every last bit of this Lemon Chicken Fettuccine that’s sitting in that pan.

    I made this for dinner tonight but also added capers and a lemon juice from a bottle, not from a lemon. It was delish! My husband is not one to eat foods with oil as a dressing but he really enjoyed this meal. :)

    What could I use in place of mushrooms. I dislike mushrooms

      Hi Barbara! What do you think about using veggies such as broccoli florets or asparagus spears? Fresh baby spinach would also work really well.

      Just made this using broccoli crowns in place of mushrooms and regular olive oil, very good!

    Kate, I could dive right into that saucepan! Fettuccine is my favorite cut of pasta and the addition of lemon chicken with grape tomatoes makes it divine. Beautiful photos, my friend. Pinning!

    I enjoyed seeing the twist on pasta, chicken and sauce in this dish though I doubt that I have the palate to appreciate the subtleties of this olive oil but I like the simplicity of the dressing you used.
