Servings: Serves 2-4

Serves 2-4


  • 8 oz linguine
  • 3 Tbsp
  • Zest of 1 lemon, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 chicken breasts (skinned, boned and cut into cubes)
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cup stemmed parsley, finely minced


  1. Cook linguine in 3 quarts boiling water.
  2. In a skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. oil. Sauté lemon zest for 2-3 minutes, then add sugar and cook, stirring another 2 minutes. Do not scorch. Pour in chicken broth. Bring to a quick boil and continue to boil until it is reduced by half.
  3. In another, larger skillet, heat 2 Tbsp. oil. Sauté cubed chicken and green onions until chicken is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Then, stir in the lemon sauce from the first skillet, add the minced parsley, and cook 3-4 minutes longer.
  4. Drain the cooked pasta, toss with the sauce and chicken, and place in a casserole. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving to let the flavors blend.
