     Chicken Pasta with Creamy Cilantro-Lime Alfredo Sa

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   4

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb chicken breast, sliced
salt and pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (use less if bottled juice)
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
2/3 cups heavy cream
2/3 cups milk
1/2 cup mozzarella or parmesan cheese, grated
8 oz spaghetti pasta (use gluten free for gluten free version)
reserved cooked pasta water (See note at bottom)
1 teaspoon fresh cilantro, chopped

1.Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium- hot heat. Generously season sliced chicken with salt and pepper, add to the hot skillet and cook for about 5 minutes until done. Remove sliced chicken from the skillet. 2.To the same skillet, add minced garlic, lime juice and chicken broth. Cook for 1-2 minutes on high heat, deglazing and scraping the skillet until the liquid is reduced and making sure garlic does not burn and brown too much. Mix in chopped cilantro. 3.Add heavy cream and milk. Bring to boil, the immediately add cheese and mix in until melted, while boiling. Then, remove from heat. 4.Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain, reserving some cooked pasta water. 5.Add pasta to the sauce, along with the half of the chicken. Mix everything in and season pasta with more salt, if needed. 6.Top with the remaining half of the chicken and more chopped cilantro.
NOTE The reserved pasta water is usually used when the pasta is too dry and there is not enough sauce when you combine the cooked pasta to the sauce. You may or may not need it but itís good to put away about 1 cup, just in case.
