Recipes Lemon Chicken Pasta Ingredients: 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil 1 cup spiralized zucchini (see tip below) 1 cup baby spinach ½ cup shredded skinless rotisserie chicken breast 1 / 8 tsp. salt 1 / 8 tsp. ground pepper ½ cup cooked whole-wheat spaghetti 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese 1 tsp. grated lemon zest 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice 1 Tbsp. panko breadcrumbs, toasted (see tip below) Directions: Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini; cook for 1 minute. Add spinach and chicken; cook for 1 more minute. Season with salt and pepper; remove from heat. Add cooked spaghetti, Parmesan cheese, lemon zest, and lemon juice; toss to combine. Sprinkle with toasted panko and serve. Tips: • Make your own zucchini noodles with a spiralizer; you’ll need 1 small zucchini (about 2 oz.) for 1 cup of zoodles. Or look for a package of fresh zucchini noodles in the produce department. • To toast panko breadcrumbs: Set a small skillet over medium heat. Add panko and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 2 minutes. For extra flavor, melt 1 tsp. butter in the pan before toasting the breadcrumbs. Note that you can do this step first, using the same pan you’ll use to prepare the rest of the recipe. • To make ahead: Cook pasta up to 1 day ahead and refrigerate. Yields 1 serving.
