What’s for dinner tonight you ask

Well tonight I made a new recipe. Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta. I got the recipe from The Pioneer Womans site. If you’ve never been, GO! Now. Seriously go now you wont regret it. She has amazing recipes.
Now let me just say OMG! I love lemon in my food and you can’t go wrong with anything involving cream. Oh and I forgot the Parmesan cheese, again yum! I might have to wait like a year before making this again because it is something I can just dig into and not stop eating. So good.
Okay enough talking and share the recipe already! Okay, your wish is my demand. Not literally cause if I had that power I would be living in a 5 bedroom house with a mini van LOL Anywho, here is an amazing recipe for you guys to try.

Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta
Ingredients:
4 whole Grilled chicken breasts 
1 lb. Penne Pasta cooked Al Dente
1/2 stick of Butter
3 Whole lemons juiced
3/4 cups Heavy cream
1/4 cups Half-and-half
1-1 1/2 cups Grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
20 whole Basil leaves chopped
 
Cook pasta. Reserve one cup of the hot pasta water in case you need to loosen the consistency of the sauce later. Set the pasta aside in the colander.
In the same pot melt the butter over medium heat. Squeeze the juice of the lemons. 
Whisk together. Pour in the heavy cream and the half-and-half. Whisk until hot. 
Then add in the Parmesan cheese and whisk until it is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Check the consistency of the sauce. If it’s too thick add some of the reserved water from the pasta.
Pour the pasta and the sauce into a big serving bowl. Sprinkle remaining basil over the top and then add the sliced chicken breasts. 
Enjoy!
