The Pioneer Woman's•Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta

Penne Lemon Chicken
I am a huge fan of Ree Drummond also known as The Pioneer Woman. Ree's enthusiasm is intoxicating and inspires me on a daily basis. Recently I was thumbing through her awesome blog and came across this recipe. This pasta dish was such a huge hit with my family that they requested it twice in one week! Thank you Ree. :)


Chicken Marinade

4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup olive oil
Juice from 4 lemons
2 Tlbs. honey

Place your chicken breasts in a ziplock baggie and lightly pound the chicken with a meat tenderizer. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, and honey. Mix and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours. Grill and slice.

Pasta Sauce

1/2 stick of butter
3 whole lemons, juiced
3/4 cup of heavy cream
1/4 cup of half and half
1 1/2 cups of freshly grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
20 whole basil leaves, chopped

1 pound of penne pasta, cooked


Cook pasta reserving 1 cup of the hot pasta water. In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Squeeze in the juice of 3 to 4 lemons, whisk together. Pour in cream and half and half, dump in your grated cheese and whisk until melted. Add salt and pepper. Add Some of the reserved hot pasta water if sauce is to thick.
Pour the drained pasta right into the skillet with the sauce. Sprinkle with basil and top with your grilled sliced chicken.
