  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter, divided

  • 1 cup white wine

  • * Please use whatever products you have in your kitchen; plant-based ingredients are just what we have in ours.

Instructions:

  • Step 1.

    Prepare the Chicken. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, cook the chicken on all sides until golden brown. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Remove the chicken to a plate and set it aside.

  • Step 2.

    Cook the Pasta. Cook the pasta in a large pot according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Return the pasta to the pot and gently toss with a small amount of oil to keep strands from sticking. Set aside.

  • Step 3.

    Make the Sauce. Return the skillet to medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon butter. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant but not browned, 1 minute. Add the white wine and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the liquid is almost completely reduced.

  • Step 4.

    Reduce the heat to low and stir in the chilled butter, 1 tablespoon at a time until the sauce is glossy and slightly thickened. Stir in the lemon zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste (the sauce should taste very vibrant). Remove from the heat.

  • Step 5.

    Finish the Dish. Set the pot with the pasta over low heat. Carefully pour the sauce and add the chicken to the pasta. Gently toss everything together until warmed and well-coated in the sauce. Add some of the reserved pasta cooking liquid if needed to achieve the desired consistency.
