DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Dip the chicken in the beaten egg, then into the bread crumbs, which have been mixed with the grated cheese, ½ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp pepper. Spread the coated chicken pieces on a rack or a platter. This can be done several hours ahead and refrigerated.
  • Heat ½ cup oil in large skillet. Add 1/3 chicken pieces; sauté until golden brown. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon, and repeat with remaining chicken. Discard oil from skillet, and wipe clean.
  • Cook the pasta; add garlic salt to water for extra flavor while boiling. While the pasta is cooking, melt the ½ cup butter in the skillet. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Add the cooked chicken, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss to coat the chicken pieces with the sauce. Do not allow chicken to cook further.
  • Drain the pasta, and toss the remaining 2 Tbsp butter; then spoon onto platter. Spoon chicken and sauce over pasta. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges. I like to use more lemon juice than the recipe calls for, but I love lemon!
