  • Flip chicken and cook the other side until browned.
  • Add lemon juice from one lemon to the pan and let simmer for about 20-30 seconds, flip chicken to let lemon juice coat the other side and transfer chicken to a plate.

  • Whisk in the half & half until it’s all combined and add in the fettuccine.
  • Toss all with the fresh parsley and serve!
