Description

This chicken pasta in garlic basil butter sauce recipe makes for an easy gluten-free dinner for busy weeknights. Pasta and chicken are tossed with vegetables you already have in your kitchen, and drizzled in a sizzling light and creamy garlic butter sauce with extra hints of basil and lemon!

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces, weight Gluten-free Pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2  Large Chicken Breasts, Halved
  • ½ cups Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 3 cups Vegetables, Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Basil, Chopped
  • Parmesan Cheese, To Serve

Preparation

In a large pot, cook pasta to al dente according to package instructions.

While pasta is cooking, make the chicken and sauce. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add chicken. Cook chicken until fully cooked, flipping when necessary to cook both sides. Add butter, garlic, chopped vegetables, and lemon juice. Cook until vegetables are bright and start to become tender, about 4–5 minutes.

Add chopped basil and stir for another 30–60 seconds. If you want more sauce, add up to 1/4 cup of reserved pasta water to your sauce.

Once pasta is cooked and drained, add it to the skillet with the chicken and vegetables. Toss pasta to coat it in sauce. Serve chicken pasta hot with extra fresh basil and Parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!
