    Notes

    • Quality Ingredients: With simple dishes like this, the quality of ingredients can make a big difference. Try using fresh, good-quality chicken, ripe tomatoes, and olive oil for the best results.
    • Cook the fettuccine al dente to ensure the best texture. It should be firm but not hard when you bite into it.
    • Use freshly squeezed lemon juice for the most vibrant flavor.
    • To make the dish even more flavorful, marinate the chicken pieces in lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper for about 20 to 30 minutes before cooking.
    • You can replace the chicken with shrimp, salmon, or any other protein of your choice for a different flavor profile.
    • If you prefer a different type of pasta, you can use spaghetti, linguine, low-carb pasta, gluten-free pasta, or penne instead of fettuccine.
