      A friend from California brought me a dozen Meyer lemons (can't get them where I live), so I went looking for recipes to use them in. Had to futz with this one a bit to make it for two people: one chicken breast, half a box of angel hair pasta (our supermarket doesn't carry cappelletti), one bunch of broccoli (more than called for) and the full amount of sauce/cheese. Took the suggestion about cooking the chicken in garlic as well as butter. Delicious! Will be making this again soon, I'm sure -- as long as the lemons last!

      Fabulous -- especially if you cook the chicken in butter & garlic salt, and make a little pan sauce for it. I used way more brocolli, about 1/2 cup pesto sauce, and whole wheat pasta. DO NOT skip the lemon olive oil (if you can find it) or the Meyer lemon; they make this dish distinctive. YUM!
