Creamy Lemon Chicken Pasta is so comforting, so perfect for the whole family. Kids and grown ups alike will love it so.
Spring is finally showing its face, and I find myself moving from the roasts and meatballs of Sunday dinner to lighter options. Lemon says spring to me, and I’ve been adding it to as many things as I can, including these Lemon Cheesecake Pancakes, and of course, Lemon Chicken.
My kids love lemonade, but add lemon to their dinner and they are not too thrilled. I often find myself making dinners that seem like they would please everyone, to find my kids turning up their noses at the beautiful meal I’ve created. There is nothing more frustrating than spending time making dinner and having half the table push their food around the plate and whine.
This has happened to me numerous times, and most especially during our Sunday dinners. My favorite Chicken Francese seemed like something that everyone would like, but there were complaints that it was too lemony or too much like wine.
Lemon and chicken are perfect together - how could they not love this meal? This is what led me to Creamy Lemon Chicken Pasta. Everyone gets the same dinner in our house, but I like to make adjustments to the meal to get everyone eating.
For the chicken sauce, I added cream to cut the tartness of the lemon and just a touch of sugar to add a little sweetness. You can always leave a piece of chicken or two out of the sauce. Tossing the pasta with butter, cooking water and cheese means I can offer a lemon free version of the pasta to the kids who are still not too happy with the creamy lemon sauce.
This Creamy Lemon Chicken Pasta is fresh and bright for your Sunday Supper, and with a few adjustments, your dinner can please every palette for a drama free meal.
