Lemon Spaghetti with Chicken and Broccoli

I adapted the lemon spaghetti recipe that I made before for the pasta and then added some different toppings. And it's made with ingredients that I usually have on hand so this is a great recipe to use when I haven't had time to get to the store.

Lemon Spaghetti with Chicken and Broccoli
Adapted from a previous recipe

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 small bag of frozen broccoli florets
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon of grated lemon zest
1 lb. whole wheat angel hair spaghetti
2/3 cup lemon juice (1 juiced lemon and bottled lemon juice for the rest)
2/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon dried basil

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.

Meanwhile, cook cubed chicken breast in olive oil in a large skillet. Add broccoli florets, minced garlic & grated lemon zest when chicken is almost done.

Whisk lemon juice, olive oil and dried basil together. Combine pasta and chicken mixture, then pour lemon sauce over the mixture and stir to combine. Sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese over the top of each serving.Pin It
