#RECIPEFRIDAY: Easy Zesty Lemon Chicken Spaguetti...

**Feel free to share your recipe today April 17 - I will be back next week with a new recipe to share!*

I had some extra lemons laying around so I thought I'd make use of them.

Seeing that...

I've always enjoyed a citrusy flavour to my pasta...

I thought I'd make something specially for SuperFit in hopes that...

He'd also like his spaguetti a little zesty too!

I mean...

Who doesn't like a little zest in their life?! :P

But before I get to my recipe...

I'm happy to share that I've been running quite regularly on the treadmill (pain free!) since I was give the green light to run again so...

I can't wait to actually be able to go outside and see what my indoor training will bring! (I won't deny though, there is a part of me that fears the pain will come back but, we'll just have to wait and see...until the snow actually clears!)

Got this awesome tank from Pavement Runner.
It's one of my fave workout shirts!

But enough about me...

Let's get to the food!

by *CaNdY FiT*
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

  • Spaguetti (good for 2 servings - leftovers are always good)
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 lemon - zest + 2 tbsp juice on reserve
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1 garlic cloves, sliced


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, add in your spaguetti
  2. In the meantime, oil your fry pan and turn your element on to medium/low heat
  3. Add chicken breast, flip every so often and cook until done (about 10 minutes - depending on size)
  4. Remove from heat
  5. In the same pan, add in your cherry tomatoes
  6. Add in salt and pepper to taste
  7. Cook for about 4 minutes
  8. Slice your chicken into pieces and throw into the pan
  9. Turn your element down to low
  10. Once your pasta is cooked, use a colander to drain the water
  11. Add in a serving or two of pasta into the pan
  12. Add lemon juice
  13. Mix around
  14. Turn you element off, plate your spaguetti and add a little zest to top.
  15. Enjoy!
  • Add in some garlic when cooking your tomatoes for additional flavour
  • Parmesan cheese I'm sure would be quite delish too!
