Flashback Friday: Beach Street Chicken Lemon Linguine
I mentioned on Instagram earlier this week one of my all-time favorite meals. In case there is someone out there who hasn't tried this recipe, you are missing out. Don't wait another week to give this recipe a try. It is such an unusual pasta dish with different flavors like Cajun, soy sauce, lemon and a sweetness from some brown sugar. At first you might look at this recipe and think it is kind of strange. However, it is AMAZING! The flavors all come together so perfectly unlike any pasta dish you've ever had. Hope you love it!
*Don't forget to login to Deals to Meals to find out where you can get chicken and pasta on sale this week. Both are on sale for great deals. In fact, some stores have chicken as low as $1.29/lb. How great is that?!
Beach Street Lemon Chicken Linguini
1 lb. linguini (or Fettucini) pasta
2 T. olive oil
Zest from one lemon
Juice from one lemon
½ c. chopped green onion
¼ c. chopped fresh parsley
Salt and freshly ground pepper
½ c. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, whole
2 T. Cajun seasoning
1/4 c. lemon juice
2 T. minced parsley
1/4 c. brown sugar (or more if you like it a little sweeter)
3 T. soy sauce
2 chicken breasts, sliced
Combine the marinade ingredients in a Ziploc bag. Slice thawed chicken (or shrimp). Pat dry and toss in marinade to coat. Refrigerate 1-12 hours. Cook marinated chicken with the marinade sauce in a large saute pan on medium heat until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
Cook linguini in boiling salted water until done; drain well and rinse noodles. Combine juice of one lemon, zest, olive oil, green onions, and fresh parsley together. Add hot pasta into bowl and toss well. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add chicken with the marinade into the large pasta bowl. Toss in parmesan cheese to taste and serve warm.
