We saw this recipe online and noticed we had almost all those ingredients at home so we had to try and make it. And here it is, our version of the Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta. We changed a few things around but it was still delicious. Next time we make it we will probably grill the chicken out in the mini BBQ we have, even though the chicken was delicious it was a bit dry so we'll try truly grilling it. I'll add the recipe here just to have it recorded.
Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta
- 4 whole Grilled Chicken Breasts, Sliced
- 1 pound Penne Pasta, Cooked Until Al Dente
- ½ sticks Butter
- 3 whole Lemons, Juiced
- ¾ cups Heavy Cream
- ¼ cups Half-and-half
- 1-½ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese (or Romano)
- Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
- 20 whole Basil Leaves, Chopped
Cook pasta, reserving 1 cup of hot pasta water when you drain.
Set pasta aside in a colander.
In the same pot, melt butter over medium heat.
Squeeze in the juice of 3 to 4 lemons. Whisk together.
Pour in cream and half-and-heat. Whisk until hot.
Dump in cheese and whisk until melted.
Add salt and pepper. Check consistency, adding some of the hot pasta water to loosen the sauce if needed.
Pour pasta and sauce into a large serving bowl.
Sprinkle remaining basil all over the top, then add sliced chicken breasts.
