I pinched this recipe from SandyJJ and decided to make a few personalized changes. My 7 year old grand-daughter Jordan came up with the name, and it really IS super!

Ingredients

CHICKEN PREP:

1 1/2 lb
chicken breasts
pinch
salt and pepper
1/2 Tbsp
butter
1 1/2 tsp
lemon zest, grated

SAUCE:

1 stick
butter, melted
1 c
white wine (i use pinot grigio)
1 1/4 tsp
minced garlic (i use dried)
1/2 c
lemon juice
1/3 c
olive oil
1/2 tsp
rosemary, dried
pinch
salt and pepper
1/4 c
fresh parsley chopped
16 oz
thin spaghetti
parmesan cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all sauce ingredients except parsley in a pan. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes. The last 5 minutes add the chopped parsley and stir.
2
Cook pasta according to package directions.
3
While sauce is simmering start chicken prep. Add the 1/2 tablespoon of butter to fry pan. Add chicken at a medium temperature. Grate the lemon over the chicken pieces and sprinkle a touch of salt and pepper. I have used chicken cutlets and also chicken tenders. Both work well. Cook for about 6 minutes on both sides till slightly browned.
4
After chicken is browned turn the heat up a smidge and pour a 1/2 cup of the sauce over the chicken and give it just a few minutes. I actually let my chicken cook with in the sauce for about 25 minutes last night and it was yummy and tender!
5
Drain pasta and pour the sauce over and toss the pasta thoroughly. Lay the chicken on the pasta, sprinkle Parmesan to taste and enjoy! I made this last night and it was gorgeous! My biggest problem is remembering to take a pic of the meal before digging in. Hope to take that picture soon!
