From Every Plate

Lemon Thyme Chicken Linguine

with Sautéed Zucchini

Zing! Wham! Pow!—Your taste buds, after one bite of this dish. Have you ever had your mind blown by something ridiculously simple? (See: sea salt on chocolate chip cookies. Tilting your glass sideways before pouring in your beer. Jeans that actually fit.) Our chefs have done the same thing here by adding bright, tangy lemon juice to a creamy sauce. This one simple step transforms pasta into something other-wordly. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourself!

Cook this Recipe in 6 Simple Steps

1) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Trim and quarter zucchini lengthwise; cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick pieces. Peel and finely chop garlic. Zest and quarter lemon.
2) Once water is boiling, add pasta to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.
3) While pasta cooks, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and softened, 7-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate.
4) Meanwhile, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with half the thyme (all the thyme for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. Once zucchini is done, heat a drizzle of olive oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Reduce heat under pan to low.
5) Stir pasta, zucchini, cream cheese, sour cream, stock concentrate, half the lemon zest, ¼ cup pasta cooking water (⅓ cup for 4 servings), 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4), and a squeeze of lemon juice into pan with chicken until thoroughly combined. Turn off heat; season with salt and pepper. (If sauce seems too thick, add more reserved pasta cooking water a splash at a time until everything is coated in a creamy sauce.)
6) Divide pasta between bowls. Top with as much remaining lemon zest as you’d like. Serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.

Serve and Enjoy!
