Great pasta dish with with grilled or barbecued chicken.

  • 1 1/2 cups grilled or barbecued chicken, cut in morsels
  • 3 tablespoons butter, olive oil or mixture of the two
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 2 to 3 fresh cloves garlic, peeled and chopped fine
  • 1 t oregano or thyme, fresh or dried (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (if you want a garnish)
  • 3/4 pound pasta (angel hair works well)
OO Pasta pot, saucepan or skillet large enough to accomodate pasta and chicken.

  1. THIS dish is best with a 'pan finish' - cooked and drained pasta is added to other ingredients for final blending.
  2. PUT the pasta water on to boil.
  3. SAUTÉ the garlic in the butter on low heat until it just begins to turn color (light gold).
  4. ADD the chicken morsels and the (optional) oregano.
  5. ADD the lemon juice and white wine and allow to simmer so the sauce reduces slightly and the chicken absorbs the flavor.
  6. COOK the pasta.
  7. DRAIN the cooked pasta well, reserving some of the cooking water to moisten the pasta if some people like the sauce more 'liquid'.
  8. ADD the drained pasta to the sauce and mix well.
  9. SERVE on heated plates, garnishing with the parsley.
