Lemon Chicken Fettuccine Recipe

This one pot Lemon Chicken Fettuccine recipe is a fresh and easy take on dinner. A quick pasta dish made of noodles tossed with tomatoes, mushrooms, lemon juice and olive oil.

AN EASY CHICKEN PASTA DINNER IDEA

Lemon Chicken Fettuccine made for all the lemon lovers out there. It includes chicken with fettuccine in a delicious lemony sauce with mushrooms and tomatoes.

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.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN FETTUCCINE PASTA

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

  • We start by cooking our chicken pieces in some olive oil, and adding in the tomatoes and mushrooms.
  • In the meantime, we will also boil the fettuccine and drain when done.
  • Add fettuccine to the chicken mixture; stir in the prepared dressing and cook until heated through.

    This is an absolutely marvelous recipe, no foolin!! I love it just as it is but sometimes add other ingredients, ie zucchini, spinach, capers, etc. So, add according to your tastes, you can’t go wrong here!!!!!

  2. Can the mushrooms and tomatoes be substituted with something else? My SO is allergic to mushrooms and neither of us like tomatoes

    I made this recipe as it is written… then decided to add some cooked broccoli… love having some veg with chicken myself. Turned out good, added a little chicken broth when cooking the chicken to keep chicken moist..

    it was good, my husband loves pasta, but we have to be careful with his diabetes, so I try to buy alternatives to plain pasta.. I like to sneak in veggie pasta, whole grain pasta when I can.

  4. I just found this recipe on Pinterest today! Oh my goodness… it was DEE-Licious (as my dd says!). I admit that I tweaked it a little bit for our tastes, but the flavor was wonderful! I added a 1/4 tsp oregano to the dressing and baby spinach and a couple more cloves of garlic to the chicken/mushroom mix. Plus, instead of grape tomatoes, I used about a half a can of Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes (w/o their juices). My dd is allergic to milk, so the Parmesan cheese was added to individual portions for the rest of us. I also reduced the oil by 2 TBSP overall. I’ve shared the recipe on FB I liked it so much! Thank you!!
