 - Hi everyone. It's Green and today we are making the easiest 30 minute chicken with pasta dinner. It is a creamy lemon chicken pasta with the best Alfredo sauce and it is so easy. Let's get started. We're gonna cook some pasta. Bring a pot of water to boil and add one table spoon of salt and 12 ounces of fettuccine pasta. Cook until al dente accordingto the package instructions. While the pasta is cooking,let's prep the chicken. Cut two medium chickenbreasts in half lengthwise so you end up with four cutlets. Now set up two bowls. In the first bowl, beat together one egg and one tablespoon of milk. In the second bowl, combineone cup of panko breadcrumbs, half a teaspoon of salt and an eighth of ateaspoon of black pepper and stir that together. Working with one pieceof chicken at a time, dip first into the egg mixture.
 Let the excess egg mixturedrip back into the bowl, then drip into the breadcrumbs, thoroughly coating both sides. Repeat with the remaining chicken cutlets until all four pieces are breaded. Now, it's time to saute. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add two tablespoons of oil or enough to lightly coatthe bottom of the pan. Once the oil it hot, add the chicken pieces in a single layer and saute for three tofour minutes per side, or just until cooked through. The chicken should registerat 165 degrees Fahrenheit on an instant read thermometer then transfer the chicken to a plate. Once the pasta is done, reserve half a cup of the cooking water to thin out the sauce later if needed then drain the pasta andlightly rinse with warm water. To make perfect lemon chicken with pasta.
Rinsing is optional but itdoes keep the sauce creamier. When the pasta and chickenare done, start the sauce. Place a medium saucepan over medium heat and melt in two tablespoons of butter. Next, add two minced garlic cloves and a quarter teaspoon of onion powder. Saute that stirring frequently for about a minute or until fragrant. Whisk in two cups of heavy whipping cream and half a teaspoon of salt and bring it to a simmer. Now, while whisking constantly, drizzle in two tablespoonsof fresh lemon juice then sprinkle on one third cupof shredded Parmesan cheese. Turn off the heat so the cheese does not come to a boil again, then stir until fully incorporated. Taste the sauce and add anotherpinch of salt as needed.
