INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 lbs boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon pepper, rub
  • 3 (14 ounce) cans 33% reduced-sodium chicken broth (about 6 cups)
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 12 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened (I use 4 ounces,must be very soft)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup cups capers, drained and rinsed
  • chopped fresh parsley
  • grated fresh parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS 

  1. Cut chicken into 1-in. pieces. Combine chicken, 1 tablespoon of the oil and rub in a large bowl; toss to coat. Heat remaining oil in a skillet over medium-high heat 1–3 minutes or until shimmering. Add chicken to hot skillet; cook and stir 10 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and centers are no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, pour broth into bowl, cover and microwave HIGH 8–10 minutes or until broth comes to a boil. On clean cutting board, chop onion. Add onion to skillet; cook 10–20 seconds or until onion is and fragrant. Carefully add broth and pasta to Skillet; cook, uncovered, 7–8 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Zest lemon to measure 1 tablespoon. Juice lemon to measure 2 tablespoons. Add zest, juice and cream cheese to skillet; stir until cream cheese is fully incorporated. Add chicken and artichokes to skillet. Cook, covered, 1–2 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat; stir in capers. Garnish with parsley and Parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Cook’s Tip: To substitute Lemon Pepper Rub, in Step 1, toss chicken with 1 teaspoon each salt and coarsely ground black pepper. In Step 2, add 2 pressed garlic cloves to onion; cook as directed. In Step 3, increase lemon juice to 3 tablespoon.
