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.

WHAT GOES INTO THIS LEMON CHICKEN FETTUCCINE?
Here we have:
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 of Borges Extra Virgin Olive Oil, I couldn’t wait to make something healthy-errrr. As soon as I tasted it, I thought about lemon and chicken, with a side of fettuccine, of course.
Borges Extra Virgin Olive Oil provides provides the perfect flavor for any dish; from veggies to poultry, and from seafood to juicy red meats. It’s perfect when used in marinades and bread dipping, but it’s also great for roasting and for salad dressings.
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.
Together with the rich BORGES Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the lemon dressing pulls this entire meal together, making you want to scrape every last bit of this Lemon Chicken Fettuccine that’s sitting in that pan.
BORGES EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL is available at Ralphs, Bashas, Smith’s, King Soopers, Fry’s, and Kroger (Texas).
