Ingredients You’ll Need

To create this delightful Chicken Spaghetti with Burrata and Lemon Butter Garlic Sauce, you’ll need the following ingredients:

For the Chicken:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
  • Salt and black pepper to taste.
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced.
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning (or a mix of dried basil, oregano, and thyme).

For the Lemon Butter Garlic Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter.
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced.
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon.
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream.
  • Salt and black pepper to taste.

For the Pasta:

  • 8 ounces of spaghetti or your preferred pasta.
  • 4 ounces of burrata cheese, torn into small pieces.
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish.

Preparing Your Chicken Spaghetti

Step 1: Season and Cook the Chicken

  1. Season the chicken breasts generously with salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for a minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the seasoned chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for about 6-8 minutes per side or until they are cooked through and have a golden-brown crust. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside to rest.

Step 2: Create the Lemon Butter Garlic Sauce

  1. In the same skillet, add the unsalted butter and minced garlic. Sauté the garlic for about a minute until it becomes aromatic.
  2. Pour in the lemon juice and zest, followed by the heavy cream. Stir the mixture gently and let it simmer for about 2-3 minutes until it thickens. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Step 3: Cook the Pasta

  1. While preparing the sauce, cook the spaghetti or your preferred pasta according to the package instructions until it’s al dente.
  2. Drain the cooked pasta and set it aside.

Step 4: Assemble the Dish

  1. Slice the rested chicken breasts into thin strips.
  2. In a large serving bowl, combine the cooked pasta, lemon butter garlic sauce, and sliced chicken. Toss everything together until the pasta is coated evenly with the sauce.
  3. Gently fold in the torn burrata cheese pieces, allowing them to slightly melt into the pasta.

Ingredients

Roasted Tomatoes:

  • 10 oz cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes (sliced in half)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • salt and pepper

Chicken Pasta:

  • 1.5 lb chicken breast (2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ lemon (preferably, Meyer lemon) thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 oz spaghetti
  • 8 oz Burrata cheese

Garnish:

  • ½ cup fresh basil chopped
  • ⅓ cup pine nuts lightly toasted

Instructions

    Roasted tomatoes

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Toss cherry tomatoes, sliced in half, with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Spread on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, without overcrowding. Roast for about 20 minutes while you prepare the pasta.

Chicken Pasta

  • This recipe uses 1.5 lb of chicken breasts which usually means 2 large chicken breasts. Make sure to use thinly sliced chicken breasts. Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally. Season them with salt, smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat in a large skillet until hot. Add chicken and cook for about 5 minutes per each side until it's cooked through. Remove chicken to a plate. Slice it thinly.
  • To the same skillet, add lemon slices, minced garlic, butter and cook for a couple of minutes on low-medium heat to release lemon juices and to soften the garlic. Remove from heat.
  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain.
  • Add cooked and drained pasta to the same skillet with lemon slices, garlic, and butter. Mix everything well. Remove lemon slices.
  • Top the pasta with cooked sliced chicken and roasted tomatoes.

How to serve it

  • When serving, add chicken spaghetti to the plates and divide the burrata cheese among the plates. Top with chopped fresh basil and toasted pine nuts.

Notes

  • Toast the pine nuts in the preheated oven at 350 F for only 5 minutes.  Watch the oven carefully - the nuts can burn quickly.
