Lemon Bruschetta Pasta with Grilled Chicken

Lemon Bruschetta Pasta with Grilled Chicken from KatiesCucina.com

Bruschetta. How I love thee. I could eat bowls full of tomato and basil bruschetta. It had been a few years since last making a bruschetta chicken pasta. It use to be my go-to meal and to be honest I have no clue why it fell off the radar. I never blogged about it, so that right there tells me that I think its been almost 4 years since I’ve last made it. If I didn’t blog about it most likely it can be dated as a pre-blog recipe. When I made the recipe I would use a soup-mix pouch to get a lot of the flavors. I did not have the mix on hand and figured I would create my own version using fresh ingredients and flavors!

I also had fresh homemade spaghetti on hand. I knew I needed to use it up and that is how this Lemon Bruschetta Pasta with Grilled Chicken came to life. You see, in the summer months I do everything possible to not turn on my oven. I will cook on the stove-top (although still heats up the house quite a bit). Since the pasta was already cooked all I really needed to do was heat up the sauce and in the last few minutes of cooking add the freshly made spaghetti. I fired up my grill and cooked 2 chicken breast which we then turned into a meal for four (or dinner for the two of us and lunch the next day for both of us). If you are looking for a fresh new take on Italian comfort food I would highly suggest you give this recipe a try!

Lemon Bruschetta Pasta with Grilled Chicken

Yield: 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

For the Chicken:

  1. Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat. Clean grill well then reduce grill to medium heat.
  2. While the grill is pre-heating, in a zip top bag add chicken breast, Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning, and olive oil. Seal bag and mix well until the chicken has been coated with the seasoning.
  3. Place on the grill and cook for 12 minutes (turning once in between). Using a thermometer, make sure the internal temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove chicken from the grill, let it rest for a few minutes, then slice chicken at a diagonal.

For the Pasta:

  1. In a large skillet add olive oil, butter, and garlic to the skillet. Head on medium-high heat for 1 minute. Then add the diced roma tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, roasted garlic & herb seasoning and cook for 2 additional minutes.
  2. Toss cooked pasta into the sauce and cook for one additional minute. Before plating, add fresh basil leaves. Mix well, and then divide the pasta amongst four plates. Add half a chicken breast on top of each plate of pasta and enjoy!

    This was amazing and so easy! I’m on a dairy-free soy-free diet right now so I omitted the butter and just used extra olive oil. My hubby and I loved it and my three year old was asking for seconds. So delicious. Thanks for sharing!

      Alicia, so happy to read that your family enjoyed it!

    I have all the ingredients to make this except for the McCormick Grill Mates® Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning. What seasonings could I use instead?

    • Katie replied on March 23rd, 2014 at 9:45 am

      Hi Trillby–not sure the McCormick Grill Mates® Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning really makes this dish. I would say hold off making it until you can get to the store to pick up the seasoning. You could always do a little garlic powder, but not sure about any of the other seasonings. good luck.
