Good morning, everyone. I'm back for another Sunday Supper event. This one is hosted by Renee of Renee's Kitchen Adventures and our theme today is: WELCOME SPRING. I chose to share this recipe because of the lemon in it. When I think of spring, I think of lemons and asparagus when we're talking food. Lemon and asparagus in everything pleaseeee! It took me a while to agree upon lemon in anything, but it started out with lemon in main dish foods via Nick's request. Over the last year or so, I've been more willing to try lemon desserts and hopefully, my fellow Sunday Supper bloggers will have some lemon-y desserts for me to save in my ever-growing collection of recipes.

When I went to make this recipe, three things stood out to me that made me really excited about it. First, it's made in one pan. I cannot tell you how much I love one pan/pot meals. I really cannot. There are no words to describe my love. Second, SPICY. Another thing that over the course of my marriage I have begun to crave all the time! I was raised on bland foods (not gross ones, just underseasoned ones), so spicy foods were definitely a work in progress for Nick over the years because he will tear up some spicy foods. And lastly, it's pasta. Ohhhh, my love for pasta definitely surpasses that of my love for one pan/pot meals.

And it was a winner winner, chicken dinner. I think that it definitely could have used more of a punch to it. It wasn't very spicy and I'm still typically good at gauging heat because I do have three little ones who have varying degrees of handling spiciness. It was still a great meal and I loved the lemon and tomatoes together.

What you need:
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 8 oz. rotini pasta
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • Juice from 2 small lemons
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes (next time, we will at least double this amount)
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
Directions:
  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Add chicken and cook until browned.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the cheese and bring to a boil, stirring often.
  5. Continue to cook uncovered for about 9 to 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated and the pasta is cooked al dente.
  6. Remove from heat and top with cheese. Cover for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and the remaining liquid has been absorbed.
