Lemon Caper Chicken Pasta

It’s spring in Bozeman! It was beautiful and sunny today and I wanted a dinner to match this bright and lovely weather.

1 Whole Chicken Breast
8 oz. Gemelli Pasta
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Plus Some For Cooking)
2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed
1 Medium Lemon, Zested and Juiced
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated
1/4 Cup Capers
Salt and Pepper 

Pepper the chicken breast and cook in olive oil and a little of the lemon juice. While the chicken is cooking boil the pasta. Remove the chicken breast from the pan and slice into pieces. Mix the two tablespoons of olive oil in the heated pan with the garlic, lemon juice and lemon zest. Add the pasta, capers and Parmesan cheese. Salt to taste and serve with salad and bread. Serves four.

It didn’t disappoint. It was absolutely perfect.

I purchased the pasta and capers at All Things Italian, a specialty store here in Bozeman. You can find any shape or size of pasta there and you can order from their online store!
