Chicken Salt & pepper All-purpose flour Pasta Olive oil Garlic & Onion Red pepper flakes White wine Broth Parmesan Lemon juice Greens

Season chicken with salt and pepper, dredge in flour and shake off the excess.

Step 1

Add chicken breasts to preheated skillet once the oil is hot, and brown on both sides, cooking until an internal temperature of 160 degrees has been reached. Transfer to a plate and cover with a lid or tent with foil. Cook pasta according to the package.

Step 2

Sauté garlic and onion until translucent and soft for a few minutes then add in red pepper flakes and flour, creating a roux which will help create a thick full-bodied sauce without any heavy cream. After about 30 seconds it should start to smell nice and nutty.

Step 3

Slowly whisk in the wine, bringing it to a gentle boil while deglazing the bottom of the pan. This means to scrape off all the brown bits that contain so much extra flavor. We like those bits! Whisk in the broth and bring to a boil, then simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.

Step 4

Remove from heat. Add Parmesan and season with salt and pepper to taste, if needed.  Into the sauce add pasta, lemon juice and arugula, slice browned chicken breasts and add it back into the skillet.

Step 5

Stir everything to combine and serve with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and black pepper if desired.
