Ingredients

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb penne pasta
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees
  • Place breadcrumbs into a dish and then cut chicken in half so you have thin breasts.
  • Cover the chicken in breadcrumbs and then place into a hot skillet with 2 tablespoons oil.
  • Cook chicken until crispy and then flip. Once both sides are crispy finish cooking chicken in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
  • Cook pasta in a large pot with boiling water and then add in the asparagus at the end or steam asparagus. We cook the pasta al-dente.
  • Add minced garlic, butter, and olive oil to the pan that you used to cook the chicken. Scrap up all the bits of breading. 
  • Pour the pasta with a little pasta water into the skillet with the garlic mixture.
  • Chop up the asparagus and chicken add to the skillet. 
  • Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Drizzle with a little fresh lemon and more parmesan, or serve as desired.
