Easy Lemon Chicken Pasta Recipe

Total time

35 min (prep 10 min, Cook 25 min)






1 pound dried penne

2 chicken cutlets, cut into fingers

salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 cloves garlic, sliced (I personally like to add more!)

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley, for garnish.

2 lemons juiced.

1/2 cup grated parmesan



Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, until al dente. Drain well.


Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large grill pan over medium-high and add chicken. Grill until golden and completely cooked. Remove to a plate and slice.


Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to a saute pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and saute until fragrant. Add the cooked pasta and turn the heat off. Mix all together.


Remove pasta to a large bowl. Add chicken to the warm pasta and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle in chopped parsley. add the juice of 2 lemons and mix. Before serving top with Parmesan.



If you have any dietary preferences, you can substitute the pasta with a gluten-free one, or get a dairy-free parmesan.


Bon Appetite!
