I don't really like chicken in my pasta but this recipe is the ultimate exception. I love using super thin chicken breasts so that the sauce is easily absorbed throughout each piece and it's less meaty than a giant thick chicken breast. Pro tip, whenever I have enough time and want to take things to the next level, I'll soak the chicken breasts in a salt water brine for a couple hours and add a few fresh lemon slices to the brine too - it makes the chicken way more tender. (Brine ratio is always 1tbsp salt: 1 cup water.)
This is a big recipe and I used a whole pound of pasta. If you want to make less, I wouldn't change anything except cooking less pieces of chicken breast and less pasta, you'll just end up with a little more sauce which is never a bad thing. PS - If you're trying to cut carbs you can make the chicken without any breading or pasta and just eat it with the buttery lemon sauce!
